Dan Baune’s Lost Sanctuary present their second music video for the single Master Of You,
The track is taken from the album Lost Sanctuary, out on May 14th 2021 via ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records and is featuring Matt Mitchell as guest on vocals!
Dan Baune says about Master Of You:
«One of the collaborative efforts on the album, Master Of You is short and sweet. On a distinctly European-sounding album, this is one of the few songs that has a more American vibe. Hence, the choice to invite my good friend Matt Mitchell to perform the vocals was an obvious one. With his laid-back phrasing and Springsteen-esque rasp, Matt pours his bluesy swagger into every line, a coolness that is hard to beat!».
«Thematically, the song is about addiction. But not necessarily addiction to booze or other substances in a ‘Rock & Roll cliché’ kind of way. It’s more about addiction in a broader sense, and how we as humans tend to replace one addiction with another, until we reach a point where we hardly recognize ourselves in the mirror. Whether it’s addiction to sugar and caffeine, TV and our phones, growth and ambition, toxic relationships, sex… we all have some monkey or other to bear».
Lost Sanctuary is the long-awaited debut solo endeavor of Monument guitarist Dan Baune. Together with trusted friend and power-house drummer Sebastian Weiss, Dan Baune greatly expands upon his NWoBHM roots and has written an album that is both extremely heavy and intensely melodic, showcasing his love for thrash, speed and power metal alike.
Dan Baune covers guitar and bass duties on the entire album, as well as lead vocals on many songs. The concoction is completed by a number of acclaimed guest vocalists, such as Doogie White (Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Schenker), Herbie Langhans (Firewind, Avantasia), Rasmus Andersen (Diamond Head), Matt Mitchell (Furyon), Jennifer Diehl (Fire Red Empress) and Aliki Katriou (Eight Lives Down), as well as two guest soloists, Bob Katsionis (Firewind, Outloud) on keys and Chris Webb (Solsikk, Biomechanical) on guitar. The track Open Your Eyes,
Lost Sanctuary takes you on an emotive journey, with wistful songs, epic sing-along anthems, and straight up in-your-face thrash metal mayhem. The thunderous production lets the band sound raw and dangerous, perfectly treading the line between modern and old-school. The energy and sheer hunger committed to tape here is palpable, and the entire album doesn’t let up from start to finish, with many moments of virtuosity interspersed throughout.
