SANCTUARY's Classic Albums To Be Reissued On Single CD

On March 8, Ironbird via Cherry Red Records will reissue SANCTUARY's first two albums — 1987's "Refuge Denied", produced by Dave Mustaine of MEGADETH; and 1990's "Into The Mirror Black", produced by Howard Benson — on a single CD.

"Refuge Denied" contains a great version of JEFFERSON AIRPLANE's "White Rabbit". "Into The Mirror Black", SANCTUARY's second and final album, is an overlooked masterpiece, blurring the lines between technical, Bay Area-style thrash, traditional heavy metal and European power metal.

Singer Warrel Dane and bassist Jim Sheppard went on to extend SANCTUARY's ambition and songwriting sensibilities into the superb NEVERMORE.
