Corners of Sanctuary, The Whisky, West Hollywood, Ca., September 13, 2019
Corners of Sanctuary recently completed a short West Coast Tour, which included a date at the world famous Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip. Opening for The Iron Maidens, Corners of Sanctuary brought their impassioned brand of true heavy metal to be proceedings, and absolutely captivated the early arrivals with a stunning live performance.
Slamming into overdrive with the raging refrains of Victoria from their Declaration Of Metal manifesto, Corners of Sanctuary launched into their persuasive set in nothing short of an epic way. With the entire band sporting a wicked and wild collection of Metal Babe Mayhem shirts while delivering the massive sonic entreaties tenfold, there is no doubt this Philadelphia based collective made a ton of new fans within the hallowed walls of the iconic nightclub.
Possessing the strength and know-how to unleash supremely memorable anthems, selections such as Metal Machine, Fist Full Of Vengeance, and Wrecking Ball left an indelible impact. Vocalist Frankie Cross performs with a passion and fury that brings that lyrics to an ultra-vivid life in the grand and glorious tradition of the genre greats such as Rob Halford and Bruce Dickinson. Mick Michaels shreds it all into the stratosphere with his thrilling guitar interludes. And what a ripping rhythm section Corners of Sanctuary possesses, the pummeling artistry courtesy of James Pera on bass and the mighty Mad T on drums.
With such a powerhouse performance from Corners Of Sanctuary, the banner of traditional American Heavy Metal was waving very high and proud on at The Whisky. Expect a brand new album entitled Heroes Never Die from Corners of Sanctuary sometime in the New Year. And be sure to check into what this amazing band has to offer the next time they arrive to devastate the West Coast.
