SABBAT Reissues Sanctuary (2007)

Sanctuary issue the first two Sabbat albums, probably their best and most influential, for Sabbat were at the forefront of a new wave of thrash in the mid/late 80s. Fast, intricate, they took their own influence from the speed metal likes of Raven, with Venom like vocals and Pagan influenced lyrics.

1987's A History Of A Time To Come was considered a classic, its pace and power relentless, they were a real rival for the Bay Area Scene. Riffs range from chunky to frantic, but all at high speed. ****

The following year's Dreamweaver followed in a similar vein, and took concepts from the book 'The Way Of Wyrd', in keeping with the Pagan lyrics.

The vocals and sharp and punchy, growls deep, while the guitar as fast as ever. ****

Both albums come well annotated with bonus live tracks.

Mind blowing thrash, if you like it extreme you'll love these.
