Hailing from Philadelphia, PA, Corners of Sanctuary formed in 2011 to bring back the roots of Classic Heavy Metal.
Driven by the power and inspiration given to us by Metal music, C.O.S. has ignited the fires of Classic Heavy Metal, bringing the genre full circle as the sounds of yesterday live again as the sounds of today in the New Wave of Traditional American Heavy Metal (NWoTAHM) genre! Hard hitting, head banging, straight forward Heavy Metal is the mission - nothing less will do. Old School is back with a vengeance.... Metal Has Returned!
Corners of Sanctuary has performed with many notable artists including: Saxon, Anvil, Stryper, Butcher Babies, Grim Reaper, David Shankle (DSG, Manowar), Tantric, Marc Rizzo of Soulfly, Green Jello, The Edge of Paradise, Dom Jameison, Act of Defiance, Black Lodge, Marc Rizzo of Soulfly, Britny Fox and Damon Johnson (Black Star Riders, Thin Lizzy, Brother Kane). Their 2013 album “Axe to Grind” was released through La Mazakuata Records. In 2014 the album was re-released by Pure Steel Records. Pure Steel Records also released the band’s second album “Harlequin”.
Corners of Sanctuary’s fourth album “Metal Machine” officially released in October 2015 on Metalizer Records Germany. Mastered by Death Dealer guitarist Stu “The Hammer” Marshall, this album will pick up where “Axe to Grind” left off.
This summer COS released “Declaration of Metal”, a best of compilation that also includes re-recorded tracks, remixes, and a new song, “Hyde No More”.
COS is currently in the studio working on their next album “The Galloping Hordes” with plans for release in 2017.
