SANHEDRIN will be touring in support of Lights On, released earlier this year via Metal Blade Records. SANHEDRIN do metal the old-school way, channeling the greats that preceded them to create something that is instantly familiar yet with a new, modern energy to it.

Tracked, mixed and co-produced by Colin Marston at his studio Menegroth, The Thousand Caves in Queens, New York, Lights On refers to the many events of the last few years that have exposed larger societal issues long hidden or ignored. Notes the band, “In a time where the world around you feels like it’s aflame, when our heavy metal heroes are beginning to disappear to failing health or changing social norms, we, stand here as a shining light through the dark. We are prepared to fly the flag of heavy metal in these trying and uncertain times and have only begun to show the world what we are capable of.”
