“Inception” is different. Either it’s my nostalgic way of looking on this album or whatever. This record is the carrier for great songs from a period when power metal was getting closer to its first peak
I want to emphasize that The Year the Sun Died is an amazing album befitting of the Sanctuary name, even if it has more Nevermore tendencies. Both bands are two of my favorites and I’m just happy to get new music of this caliber. Fans already of either band will have no problems loving this album as much as I. I can also see it bringing in new fans easily. People that are expecting a total throwback album may initially be disappointed, but put that aside and just enjoy it.
