If we keep telling definitely got to sort of sanctuary government. I admitted sanctuary now you have yet if it will let me let's start here at the literal beginning inception is a record that is. New to most of us. But not to you guys are saying let's start at the beginning here how did you find these demos where did you find and how did you under. This new movement old material goods from 1986 straight okay. Yeah you know we recorded 1986 and we kind of forgot about it you know it's this is the actual demo that we we gave to Dave scene we met him in. I mean after that we win and have him signed and you know we kind of forgot about it because we've basically we recorded a lot of stuff in there there's a few songs that were on refuge denied it. That are on these demos and everything bit you know back in the days days that the sound quality wasn't that great you know so. I ended up finding needs. Hates these two inch masters and that. In my farm barn has a second floor and it I was up there looking for some stuff and I found him in this being with literally you know the water and I mean there's literally just like so with. Water in the middle of all over a minute thing at all it was pretty messed and that. You know. I didn't think we skated restore I met I ended up taking them somewhere what is every story analogue tape and they put him and he sings it looked like. Dehydrated some what you put beef jerky hands oh yeah yeah it was pretty cold it. You know it turned out did that day actually. Restored in my I was are awesome. And then you know we've passed them off the Zeus and seuss' the magic man he he put his touch on it may you know we've. Got I really cool of them really cool deal with these things I mean if if you're. An early century manor even stranger than at all I mean this is something you you really be into it at in the inception true that you guys post that you literally pulled them. Out of a box of water yeah yeah the core. Didn't it occur pretty you know and they've been out there for like fifteen years now and just it is they you know and the Barney on top of it was like hey lost. You know where they'd feed animals some like that and it was just that there was holes in the rough and everything so water and snow or whatever would just come down and there was a bunch of stuff you know up there that we we didn't think we cared about. But I didn't realize that those wrote this kind of one of those things where you when you move. You just don't realize you you might have put something somewhere and then later on you find out like oh man you know I wish I wouldn't and that it. You know and it worked out with me and as you know they were going to be way. I know I I did OK we're going to be. Well how what were they they are pretty well they're pretty they were so you Melissa Etheridge that your leader conventional loan. It was a world Dana folks. Allowed this you know honestly that story it's it sounds like almost too good to be true that you got to check out the trailer. Mine it's awesome in each in literally shows itself. Very cool what do you think when you put you pull those they are like and you know. I don't expletives. I I thought for sure there is no way and how I'm in my heart just sank one night do you hear you know it is surprising. You know it it almost seemed like no we didn't care about but we did you know they're about to enter after it. No I thought well I'd say oh lord I didn't know it right there that's where I really. How do you lose track to be about him or what we got. So Buchanan when you pull them out of the box did you know right away your like we got a decent this it if possible. Well I first of course a bit I didn't know if they would even workers Sam did you know after after zoos candidate rough makes forest. Once we heard it mutilate well this is this this could sound great so let's pursue any difference there. Well let's. Without further ado let's play one of the so this is one of the unreleased songs from the demo I finally disdain with which. You know with half. Do it all right here is an essay unduly stick helium around the here is. I'm insane up inception coming up February 24 sanctuary in studio here on that shot. Nine day I guess double the. Incredible. Barbecue we have right now I know if you listening like Emma. We can't eat that but you know what just gonna say if you hear you'd love to thank you very much governor into the microphone it'll come out their speakers. The Shia are I think you're wearing when he rat which barbecue master master that's right eleven Barbeque man that master the medal world he slid seven hours for us tonight in that we very much appreciate it sanctuary in studio are right now northwest legends. They are back with eight new old. But no would be an album coming out this Friday on century media record is two new songs on them. That's there's two new songs written them and they're pretty they're pretty teed. FAU groovy. Fan at fantastic and you know of this through this was the now long time ago and it it's kind of like you know. We've resurrected. Billy it's like it's got canceled this guy left all the tapes upn and attic and let them become rotten and waterlogged mean let's be honest with an amazing that it actually has its its literally kind of a miracle. And but that's it was like what's an analog tape anybody and it is. They're like why. What is that movie it's a relic of a forgone any achieved something that sounds warmer than digital. Yeah. With the unique spot despite a lot of our pop pop off. A. So I'm I'm just how old were you guys when he recorded. These alerts 20s20s. Or we are guys. We weren't as there is little reason that I'm singing like I have a C clamps strapped to mice program. I'm an orderly and the reason to be up well you get older. Your voice changes and man I'm not one of those guys that's gonna say golf. Nobody wants to hear these old songs anymore. Basically because I'm not gonna name names but there are singers that saved the I love you but we got to protect the children in India.Arie those little kids listening in I don't. Anyways what are some of the biggest influences you've seen change in the metal world since then obviously the Indian or thirty years. I mean there's. You mean as far as the music is as a whole army that is you know the whole digital thing and never in Miami has obviously everything's changed quite a bit you know. I mean. I think the way people get music now all the way people you know it's not. It's it's a little bit different for sure. Absolutely we'll we'll steal music man that's well that's very true. It's hard you got to adapt with the music industry and using big air quotes that you can't see on the radio right now. But they tell us about when you guys were young dudes in the northwest like what we're the clubs to go to. And like what were the places to be back. Give this guy's tells a story sanctuary. Demo. He's looking at me like I said you know. The brick street club. Was really good it was fun I remember hanging out with the guys from Norfolk tests nice my cousin James Baker singer of or are. Nice and and then the crazy guy. Crazy guitar player is he a player this is multifaceted please please. Analysts. Raw candy of course colored rocks rock candy apple. Oh or with. And then the grease and after them. So there. It was a it was a great scene it was a very. You know. Competitive. For yours. See that we go. That was happening in the eighties and in the sanctuary it was definitely an inspiration to all of us because the success came so quick for those guys. And you know or talk about its inception. It is truly. So and that they'll you know it's wired to do well. So. Regarding am I here. From these songs from inception who did you record these with like back in the day like where did you where did you get this is that this is a good story. The original recordings that were 23 did. There's. North as metal band I don't know if you guys remember the name called Rottweiler yeah Paul Chris when the singer. I'm recorded those demos with us not release that are appearing on. And yet there they were recorded two different studios that do Paul Crist who worked at Studio One Studio One yet which was a little bit. I mean it's you know back in the days Studio One mosquitoes and whites and earnest so it was kind of you know and and if he area in the studio is time if you two bit and we had a good time making it it was. Sixteen track studious that if things were a little bit rough I know somebody spilled Coke and one of the when you see now. I mean so you know those tapes were used to be still. Not Coke or some ago. And that of a column. Colin the thought it I I can't sell. But we just record net try at studios as well we recorded a couple of songs their team so you know we know. Are you still friends with any of those guys he's still talking them.
