SANKTUARY

Something Fierce

(Spread The Metal Records)

Reviewed by : Kelley Simms
Rating : 7.0

Canadian thrashers SANKTUARY combine galloping NWOBHM influences with vicious, old school Bay Area riffing on its debut release, Something Fierce. The Halifax transplants bleed early METALLICA and EXODUS. In fact, vocalist Alan Binger’s falsetto wails conjure up the best Steve Zetro Souza impression on some songs. But here’s where it gets tricky. Binger’s vocals are so varied, half of the eight tracks sounds like two separate bands. There’s the half which displays his old school falsetto vocals and then there’s the half with the ’80s-styled nasally thrash vocals. Don’t get me wrong, both styles are great, but not being able to decide on one or the other is a little confusing. ‘Heat Lightning’ brings out the band’s best MAIDEN, TYGERS OF PAN TANG and DIAMOND HEAD influences while ‘Thrill of the Kill’ displays their more thrashy style reminiscent of the aforementioned Exodus and Metallica. The former kicks in with some galloping Maiden rhythms and NWOBHM retro riffs, while the latter is old school thrash. Mid-paced chugging decorates ’Hail the Villain’ and ’Screeching For Vengeance.’ Unfortunately, there’s not much that sets Sanktuary apart from other bands playing this similar style, but Something Fierce is not a bad effort at all.
