Ho, ho, ho…. The Holidays are fast approaching and the sounds of the season can already be heard.
Traditional American Heavy Metal titans, CORNERS OF SANCTUARY (COS) have once again wrapped and released a brand new, all original track to commemorate this year’s Yuletide festivities with “Christmas Together.” This latest track is part of the band’s annual Holiday bundle, “A Merry Metal Xmas“.
“I know we say it every year, but we really love doing these Holiday songs,” says COS guitarist and founder Mick Michaels. “They’re something special for us and our audience…definitely something to be grateful for.”
2022 marks Corners of Sanctuary’s tenth year of delivering a sack full of classic, Metal inspired, all-original Holiday flavored songs. Over the last 10 years the band has also released a number of traditional Holiday ditties sprinkled with Heavy Metal toppings including “Jingle Bells,” “Joy to the World” and “Silent Night.”
“A Merry Metal Xmas IX” includes 10 tracks and is now available through Exquisite Noise Records on all popular online streaming sites. CD copies of the release are available for purchase directly at www.cornersofsanctuary.com and at shows.
A lyric video for “Christmas Together” has also been released.
COS finishes out the year with their annual pre-Holiday show on Thanksgiving Eve. Show dates for 2023 are already scheduled including supporting Enuff Z Nuff in February, a return to the UK in April and several performances at this summer’s SonarFest 2023; see show schedule below. Plus the band is preparing an EP release for the New Year titled “This is Metal” as well as several other projects now in the works.
