Review by Jason Houston: Corners Of Sanctuary who hail from Philadelphia describe themselves as part of the New Wave Of Traditional Metal. And while there’s no doubt that Corners Of Sanctuary is indeed a METAL band to my ears their overall sound is a cross between Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, two bands that I am a HUGE fan of by the way. But I also must tell you that, after listening to COS’ 2018 release “The Galloping Hordes”, this is a band who knows who and what they are and have delivered the METAL GOODS for sure !
On “The Galloping Hordes” what we get is a fantastic 10 track fist pumping, Bang Your Head Against The Wall Metal tunes and I must tell you that the overall flow of the album really is great! Not once did I find myself moving on to the next song, each song was a METAL MASTERPIECE that stood out on it’s on. Not a bad song on here and that’s the thing here: I mean 10 really outstanding compositions and each song just gets better and better than the previous song! By the time the last song came to an end my only complaint was that there wasn’t a ‘Track 11’ but hey, that’s alright because … Corners Of Sanctuary delivered a real quality album here and left me wanting more and more.
Not only do I plan to add “The Galloping Hordes” to my CD collection but I promise you that if and when this band plays my town I’ll go see them live! I’ll also be waiting for a follow-up to this fantastic album! I urge anyone who’s a METAL fan to purchase this album because you’ll love it just as much as I did… I have no doubt! https://www.cornersofsanctuary.com/
My rating: 100/100 (Outstanding, high valued albums & Classic Ones… a direct purchase is advisable !)
