Philadelphia’s Corners of Sanctuary drops new video for “Casualties Of War” to open up the second edition of the two-part EP Collection titled “Blood and Steel: Volume Two” which drops on August 6th via RFL Records. The follow-up to their critically acclaimed first installment, “Blood and Steel: Volume One,” hailed as the band’s most dynamic effort yet, Volume Two has some big shoes to fill, but is definitely up to the challenge.
“Blood and Steel: Volume Two” picks up where Volume One left off, continuing taking the band to a grittier, darker musical setting to platform their unique and original modern-classic Heavy Metal sound and style.
Again, produced by COS founder, primary songwriter and guitarist Mick Michaels, and mastered by Thrash legends Blood Feast guitarist and studio owner and 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” fires on all cylinders and delivers a blistering array of the band’s unforgiving signature songwriting approach. Maintaining their traditionally inspired riffing and arrangements, Volume Two continues the charge of Volume One with another battering set of traditionally influenced tracks by the united hard work of the band’s popular lineup featuring: bassist James Pera, drummer Mad T, guitarist Michaels and singer Frankie Cross. “Blood and Steel: volume two” also includes guest performances on the 80’s inspired track, “Earth Fighter,” by Seeker and Corporate Mass guitarist John Coonan as well as Femmes of Rock bassist Michael Kelly who delivers an ensemble keyboard introduction.
