Traditional Heavy Metal headbangers, Corners of Sanctuary (COS), have dropped their first-ever cover song with the release of the classic 1981 Def Leppard track, «Mirror, Mirror (Look into My Eyes).» The single is available as a free download exclusively from the band’s website, www.cornersofsanctuary.com and Inner Demon Media.
«Frankie actually suggested us doing this particular track,» said COS guitarist Mick Michaels. «We knew we wanted to do something from Def Leppard…but not any of the more well-known tracks. It’s a powerful and moving song and definitely plays into the COS vibe.»
Corners of Sanctuary swings the hammer to deliver a completely unique and atmospheric take on the original song’s concept by adding an expressive arrangement to both the bridge and solo sections and including the sound of breaking glass among other little gems.
«We wanted to do something that made it more like a Corners of Sanctuary song,» said Michaels. «Taking some liberties is what the creative process is all about.»
COS’ «Mirror, Mirror (Look into My Eyes)” was mastered by legendary L.A. producer and former Metal Blade Records engineer, Bill Metoyer (Slayer, W.A.S.P., Armored Saint) and is now available as a free MP3 download.
A similarly haunting music video has also been released by the band to accompany the single.
«Never thought we would do a cover,» Michaels added. «It’s something new for us and we hope everyone likes it…we’re keeping our fingers crossed.»
With 2022 well on its way, Corners of Sanctuary has already begun work on new music, including recording for their next full-length album, «Vengeance of the Fallen,» among other songs and has a small string of shows scheduled for the winter including performances with The Rods’ drummer Carl Canedy’s solo band Canedy and former Misfits’ guitarist Doyle.
