If you want an album that is screaming, in-your-face, all out brutality, then go pick up SANCTION’S debut record entitled “Broken In Refraction”, which came out July 26th via Pure Noise Records.

From songs such as “The Final Fraction”, “Radial Lacerations”,  and “Conscious In A Coma”, this album is not for the faint of heart, for your grandmother, or for the church choir down the street.  The songs crush spine, paralyze spirits, and leave you in a pool of blood with their hard hitting riffs, insane breakdowns and a vocalist that is relentless.

The song “Paralysis” has some early Norma Jean meets early The Amity Affliction and if Wayne Static had anger management issues feel to it.  It is so raw that there’s still residue of blood left on the track and the video captures that dark and brooding imagination that something ominous is about to happen.

Sanction will hold their own in the underground hardcore scene.  I give them a 9/10 stars!  Here is the track listing below:

1.  …An Empty Thought

4.  Answers From A Syringe
