Philadelphia’s CORNERS OF SANCTUARY (COS) drop the second edition of the two-part EP Collection, “Blood And Steel: volume two,” the follow-up to their critically acclaimed first installment. “Blood and Steel: volume one,” has been hailed as the band’s most dynamic effort yet, and “Volume Two” has some big shoes to fill, but is definitely up to the challenge. The bands latest video, “Casualties Of War,” maintains the same, darker feel that embodies both Volumes and keeps the collection solidified. The “Blood And Steel” collection offers something for die-hard COS fans, but also offers something for the fans that are just now hearing the band for the first time with its straight up, classic, early 80’s metal sound and production.

“Blood and Steel: volume two” was 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.
