Well, let's do something new. I have lots of stuff in the works right now, all of which are requiring me to listen to multiple albums, so let's do a quick one just to prove I'm still alive. Believe me, you will enjoy the long posts coming up.
Sanctity is a melodic thrash metal band from North Carolina. They only released one full-length album (hence the title of this series). They did have a couple of demos and an EP, but only the one actual album. The band was unfairly lumped in with metalcore on account of their melodic music and occasional clean vocals. However, this album is truly catchy. It's not terribly aggressive, but it is undeniably metal. They were closely associated with Trivium, which did not really help the whole metalcore accusations.
The band is notable for perfecting the sound that Trivium and God Forbid were going for without making it sound forced. However, their vocalist left after his daughter was born and one of the other members left due to a personal situation. The band replaced the two members but were never really heard from again. I would have liked to hear something else by the band, as I believe they could have been a huge mainstream metal band, without sacrficing some of their sound.
