Album Review

Asheville, North Carolina heavy metal quartet Sanctity somehow avoids the fickle finger of genre pigeonholing while still managing to illicit a veritable poetry-slam of artist comparisons. The group's Roadrunner debut, the brutal and mesmerizing Road to Bloodshed is a testament to the power of, well, Testament. Late-'80s thrash never sounded so good, especially when it's filtered through the jackhammer, maxed-out levels-production-style of modern alternative metal, courtesy of Trivium producer Jason Suecof. Sanctity embraces both the mood and the melodic precision of bands like Megadeth, Anthrax and Metallica, but vocalist/guitarist Jared MacEachern isn't above tossing in a high, Rob Halford-kissed shriek (witness the blood-curdling "Zeppo" and the "Mars, Bringer of War" inspired "Laws of Reason") or assisting lead guitar player Zeff Childress in a race through a maze of Piece of Mind-era Iron Maiden-gleaned, twin guitar noodling. Road to Bloodshed is a big, highly melodic slab of nu-classic metal, and despite an industrial-tinged misstep near the record's end (the dry, forced "Seconds"), it sinks its teeth into your arm and doesn't let go until it hits bone.

Customer Reviews

All Five Stars but the last 2 tracks...

The whole album is amazing... aside from the last 2 songs: "Lost to Ego" and "Haze of Gray."I know this is like a re-release of the album, so is that their new singer for those tracks? If it is... well the band just got a whole lot crappier. D:
