Comments SANCTUARY singer Warrel Dane: “Now that hell has officially frozen over and the pigs have flown, I can proudly say ‘The Year The Sun Died’ is finished. The record that nobody thought would ever get here has come in kicking… and yes, there is screaming! Working with Zeuss (a.k.a The Commander) was great. He really pushed us all to be better. This is a very modern-sounding record with roots still firmly planted in old-school six-string metal and I gotta give him creds for that.”
