Inner Sanctum Finally Releases New Album “Legions Awake”

Five years after the “Provenance” EP (reviewed here), India’s Inner Sanctum is finally back with a new album titled “Legions Awake.” You can check out three tracks off the release below, and the band also comments:

“The new album ‘Legions Awake’ gave us such a great opportunity to work with some of the best in the business! We managed to get James Murphy (Death, Testament) , Christopher Amott (Arch enemy and Armageddon) and Dan Mongrain (Voivod and Martyr) to actually do a solo trade off on ‘Existence Denied’. Each of these legends have such unique/trademark styles and these styles translated so beautifully on the track. Another highlight for us was working with Roman Ruminski from Germany. He is responsible for all the orchestral arrangements on the album. His project ‘Acherontic Dawn’ is nothing short of epic.”

The full track listing is as follows:

1. Incipiens 01:54
2. Wake of Destruction 04:28
3. Reflections of the Past 04:36
4. Realms of Oblivion 03:39
5. Legions Awake 04:34
6. Tainted Soils 04:36
7. March of the Wounded 05:48
8. Existence Denied (with Guest Solos) 05:48
9. Guardian 05:18

Old Rake Streaming New Single “Guitarists Playing Guitars”

Former Evile lead guitarist Ol Drake has released the first single from his upcoming debut solo album, “Old Rake,” which features instrumental guitar encompassing a myriad of styles, including flat-out shredding, classical, progressive, melodic and acoustic.

The album is due to be released on June 22nd in Europe and June 23rd in the USA. The first track, “Guitarists Playing Guitars,” which made its debut last night on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter, showcases the six-string shredder’s fretwork and features special guest appearances from the likes of Gary Holt, James Murphy, and Josh Middleton. Also featured is sticksman Mike Heller, who performs drums on the entire album.

Listen to “Guitarists Playing Guitars” now at Spotify here. Ol Drake also comments: “Behold the first single from the already-rusty ‘Old Rake’. This song was written by trying to write the cheesiest riff possible and going from there.

“I was speaking to Gary Holt and he said he’d like to solo on the album, and it just happened that when he’d said that I’d reached the main ‘solo section’ in its writing process. Then I Thought ‘I might as well go all out’. James got involved and I couldn’t believe it; to have two of my idols from growing up on one of MY songs was mind-blowing. I then asked my friend, Josh, from Sylosis, who is a ridiculous shredder, and my other friend, Amit. I met Amit through his working at a metal magazine publication, but mainly from at festivals involving alcohol; ridiculous shredder, too!

“Do not take a full impression of the whole album from this song; every track is different. Hope you enjoy my cheese-fest of ‘Guitarists Playing Guitars’!”
