Corners of Sanctuary Release 80s Inspired Second Single and Video!
Philadelphia's New Wave of Traditional American Heavy Metal (NWoTAHM) band, Corners of Sanctuary (COS), rolled out the second edition of their 2021 music series with “Blood and Steel: volume two,” this past August, following their critically acclaimed first installment, "Blood and Steel: volume one," back in March on RFL Records (US).
“Blood and Steel: volume two” picks up where Volume One left off, continuing to take COS to a much grittier, darker musical setting to showcase their unique and original modern-classic Heavy Metal sound and style.
“A continuation of volume one does not really quite capture what’s happening on volume two…it’s more of an expansion. Every new project, every new release we do as a band is building on what has come before…,” says COS guitarist Mick Michaels.
“Volume Two’s” second single and video, “Earth Fighter,” is an 80s inspired track that includes guest performances by Seeker and Corporate Mass guitarist John Coonan who provides an electrifying, emotionally melodic solo, as well as Femmes of Rock bassist Michael Kelly who delivers a haunting keyboard ensemble introduction.

“Earth Fighter definitely has a throwback sound to it…and that’s because the song was originally written in the 80s…back in 2020 we lost a dear friend…because of everything that was going on in the world, there wasn’t an opportunity to have the closure most people are accustomed to…so we wanted to honor his memory and his accomplishments as an artist and as our brother, in our own way,” Michaels said. “Volume Two” was produced by COS founder, primary songwriter and guitarist Mick Michaels, and mastered by Thrash legends Blood Feast guitarist and studio engineer, CJ Scioscia, (Ross the Boss, Mike LePond of Symphony X) at Le Chateau Bow Wow Recording in New Jersey, "Blood and Steel: volume two" rockets on all cylinders and delivers a blistering array of Corners of Sanctuary’s unforgiving classic signature songwriting approach.
