Not to be confused with the Sanctions (post Satanic Malfunctions) from the late eighties, early nineties. This Sanctions is from Tennessee, and are smitten with the sound of Tragedy and From Ashes Rise. So many bands have cloned these two aforementioned bands so much this style is loosing its impact. If you keep repeating the same stimulus over and over, it will eventually go by unnoticed. While Sanctions do have the ability to write songs that are sonic, they should focus a bit more on being original. Otherwise, they’re just another drop in the sea of Tragedy clone bands.
