Hailing from Philadelphia, New Wave of Traditional American Heavy Metal band Corners of Sanctuary (COS) formed in 2011 with a desire to bring back the sounds of Classic Heavy Metal. 2012 marked the release of their debut album Breakout. Being well received, Breakout was quickly followed up by Harlequin, which released in 2013 with Pure Steel Records in Germany. Later that same year, their third album Axe To Grind released under La Mazakuata Records in Mexico. In 2014, Pure Steel Records re-released Axe To Grind in Europe. In 2015, COS signed with Metalizer Records in Germany for the release of the album Metal Machine.
Mastered by Death Dealer guitarist and producer Stu The Hammer Marshall, Metal Machine was met with critical acclaim worldwide. Corners Of Sanctuary has performed across the US, in Europe and the UK with many notable artists including: Saxon, Anvil, Stryper, U.D.O., Butcher Babies, Grim Reaper, Saving Abel, Tim Ripper Owens, Tracii Guns, David Shankle (DSG, Manowar), Tantric, Joey Belladonna (Anthrax), Black Lodge, Don Jamieson, Edge Of Paradise, Marc Rizzo of Soulfly, Green Jello, Act of Defiance, Britny Fox, Bulletboys, Last In Line, Janet Gardner (Vixen), Jackie Chambers (Girlschool), Sponge, the Iron Maidens and Damon Johnson among others
