Century Media Records and legendary US metal act SANCTUARY have teamed up to release Inception, a collection of presumed lost 1986 studio recordings, on February 24, 2017, that have been magically restored, remixed and remastered by Zeuss (Queensrÿche, Hatebreed).
Recorded in March of 1986 (“Soldiers Of Steel”, “Battle Angels”) at Triad Studios in Redmond, Washington and Studio One in White Center between April and July 1986, Inception offers such previously unreleased highlights as “Dream of The Incubus” and “I Am Insane” as well as several classic Refuge Denied songs allowing you to delve deep into the Seattle legend’s beginnings.
Watch the lyric video for “Dream Of The Incubus (Demo 1986)” and enjoy some glorious, wild and raw 80’s nostalgia: https://youtu.be/Zw2Y4VE40Ec
Inception will be available as Gatefold LP on 180 gram vinyl and comes with a 12-page LP-sized booklet, poster, and the album on CD as additional extra. Apart from that it will be released as Special Edition CD Digipak with a 28-page booklet, and digital album.
Apart from rare photos, flyers, artwork sketches, the booklet also offers detailed liner notes by Lenny Rutledge covering SANCTUARY’s early history.
