Reactivated Seattle metal band, SANCTUARY, has posted a lyric video for the track, “Exitium (Anthem of the Living)”, taken from their upcoming album, The Year The Sun Died. Check out the video here:

Due out October 14th in North America (October 6th in Europe) via Century Media Records, SANCTUARY’s The Year The Sun Died is the long-awaited follow-up to the band’s first two studio albums that were released on Epic Records: Refuge Denied (1987) and Into the Mirror Black (1989). Singer Warrel Dane’s sky-high vocals combined with guitarist Lenny Rutledge’s more mature take on classic thrash riffs separated the band from the throes of metal acts struggling to get noticed at the time. With The Year The Sun Died, SANCTUARY continues that legacy that they started decades ago, delivering yet another fresh take on “classic-sounding” metal. Featuring artwork by Travis Smith (OPETH, NEVERMORE) and mixed/produced by Zeuss (ROB ZOMBIE, SUICIDE SILENCE, CROWBAR, etc.), this upcoming album promises to be worth the wait.
