Since 2016, ALKYMIST has trod its own trail and challenged the preconceptions of heavy music, with a dynamic, textured and progressive doom metal. Sanctuary’s six tracks and two sound collages of 43 minutes total duration lives fully up to the band’s eclectic vision. As on the first record, the new collection of songs is recorded by producer Lasse Ballade (Orm, Slægt a.o.) and the artwork created by Anders Kidmose.
