Margaret Thatcher Dies: Welcome To The Afterlife (Zombie Thatcher)

April 8th, 2013 by
Afterlife dedicated to Zombie Thatcher

Welcome To The Afterlife Mrs. Thatcher

Welcome To The Afterlife Mrs. Thatcher

This morning (8th of April 2013) Margaret Thatcher died after suffering from a stroke, or after a strike according to the epic typo from the BBC news website which can be seen below. I don’t really have much of an opinion on Thatcher’s politics because it’s not very easy to sort fact from fiction. A lot of people hated her, a lot of people worshiped the ground she walked upon. Having not lived through the larger part of her time in power an opinion I may have wouldn’t be very valid. But Soul Sanctuary would like to welcome Margaret Thatcher to the Afterlife, being our catchphrase and all. And wanted to share this awesome Zombie picture of Mrs. Thatcher in all her glory, eating flesh and swallowing souls. We would also like to dedicate our video Afterlife to the Iron Lady in her moment of passing.

Funny typo about Margaret Thatcher on the BBC News website:

Margaret Thatcher dies of Strike according to BBC News

Margaret Thatcher died of strike according to the BBC News website

“Welcome to the Cemetery, you’ll walk with grace amongst the dead. Living in a world that’s completely dead inside. Welcome to the Afterlife!”

What do you think about the death of Mrs. Thatcher, were you one of her supporters, were you one of her haters? Did she do anything good or bad for you while she was in power? Should we dedicate more blogs to famous people that have died? Let us know in the comments below. 🙂

On The Radio with Captain Sib

February 10th, 2013 by

Captain Sib

“Haven’t you read the papers? Us neither.” Is the opening quote from this weeks Captain Sib radio show. If you’re not familiar with Captain Sib’s work, it’s fairly out of this world, quite literally. Although I’m not fully versed with the back story, the host of the show has what I can only guess is meant to be an alien co-host, who comes off somewhat delirious with his strange high pitched voice. The show is of course, not meant to be taken too seriously and is certainly good fun to listen to. So if you have a spare 60 minutes, give it a listen.

What’s their story?

A long Time ago, in a galaxy far far away… Sorry, wrong story. **Cough, cough** Excuse me.

About Soul Sanctuary

Soul Sanctuary formed in 2006. The band’s dĂ©but album “Afterlife” was a completely self-produced/self-published record, released on the bands own label, Forsaken Memory Records on Halloween 2009. Afterlife has thus far received some very positive feedback from independent media some even calling the album a “Masterpiece” while others have quoted the bands front man Luke Gibson as having “A scream to match any of the Metal Legends”. They have also shared the stage with the likes of Sonic Syndicate, Guthrie Govan, Blowsight, Esoterica & Dave McPherson of the band InMe. The band and it’s individual members have also enjoyed praise from the music press with features in online publications such as Total Guitar, Bizarre, Devolution, Metal Hammer, Metalsucks.net, Bloody Disgusting, Metal Injection, Comicbook.com, Blabbermouth and many more.

In 2011 Soul Sanctuary released the Single “Lest We Forget” in an effort to raise funds to the victims of the horrific Earthquake that struck Japan in March of the same year. The band’s fund raising efforts received widespread appreciation from the metal community and was published in several news outlets, including The Observer. They even received a special thank you letter from the House of Commons. Soul Sanctuary is a big supporter of charitable work and consistently looks for ways to support causes they believe in.

Because of Soul Sanctuary’s relentless online promotion, vocalist Michael Burrough was head-hunted and hired by the band The Raven Age who were very impressed by his vocal ability from the single “Lest We Forget”. The Raven Age have gone on to play the legendary Sonisphere Festival and a two week tour with Steve Harris’s (Iron Maiden Bassist) British Lion. Many more big tours are set for the very near future too. During this time Soul Sanctuary have decided to take an indefinite hiatus from touring and live shows while Michael works on The Raven Age. But plans to release material online in the mean time are in the works and should commence soon.

Lyrics: Heart Attack

October 31st, 2009 by

Heart Attack

The suffering, caused by every broken promise.
A fallen angel born with broken wings.
A majestic lie without an ounce of truth and in this moment,
heaven starts to swallow you!

So many years I believed in you, (the lies you told)
You deceived me to my face.
Never again will I trust in you (trust in you)
and I won’t shed my tears for your heart attack.

In loving memory of those soon to pass.
Rejoice in the regrets of this worthless soul.
your faith has forsaken you, but I forsake my faith,
and with a dying breath I hear you cry in vain, forgive me god!

So many years I believed in you, (the lies you told)
You deceived me to my face.
Never again will I trust in you (trust in you)
and I won’t shed my tears for your heart attack.

(heart attack)

Your time is over now, your life is up.
Your life is over now, your time is…

Your time is!
Your time is!

NOW!!!

So many years I believed in you, (the lies you told)
You deceived me to my face.
Never again will I trust in you (trust in you)
and I won’t shed my tears for your heart attack.

I said I don’t believe in you, rest in peace, now and forever (father)
I said I don’t believe in you, (Save me) Rest in peace.

Lyrics: Gone Away

October 31st, 2009 by

Gone Away

As the sands of time slowly pass by me, and the pictures on my shelf, sit collecting dust.
This presence that I no longer feel inside my heart, starts to slowly fade from memory as well.

Well I know two wrongs don’t make a right,
But I can’t keep up this dead end fight and now I fade into the night.

(Gone Away) In this pain I’m encapsulated.
(Gone Away) I don’t think that I’m gonna make it.
(Gone Away) Without you I can’t breathe.
(Gone Away) Why did you have to leave?

My existence on pure survival instinct is nothing more than a causality.
and as I stare into my reflection of nothingness, nothingness seems to stare back at me.

Well I know two wrongs don’t make a right,
But I can’t keep up this dead end fight and now I fade into the night.

(Gone Away) In this pain I’m encapsulated.
(Gone Away) I don’t think that I’m gonna make it.
(Gone Away) Without you I can’t breathe.
(Gone Away) Why did you have to leave?

And after all this time I still don’t know.
Between the truth and lies why did you have to go?

(Gone Away) In this pain I’m encapsulated.
(Gone Away) I don’t think that I’m gonna make it.
(Gone Away) Without you I can’t breathe.
(Gone Away) Why did you have to leave?

Lyrics: Zeitgeist

October 31st, 2009 by

Zeitgeist

You are medicated machines in awe of authority (you will obey).
Forcing a life of subjection unto every passing generation.
Taking commands without question (blissful ignorance) in fear of something unseen.

Zeitgeist!

When our time comes in this life do you wonder what survives?
Or have you embraced the truth and renounced this book of lies?

repent all your sins, or burn for eternity (let them burn).
This is your message and you wonder why this world is without peace?

When our time comes in this life do you wonder what survives?
Or have you embraced the truth and renounced this book of lies?

When you try to make sense of everything you see.
I think you’ll find it’s not as clear, as you’d like us to believe.

When our time comes in this life do you wonder what survives?
Or have you embraced the truth and renounced this book of lies?

When our time comes in this life do you wonder what survives?
Or have you embraced the truth that this zeitgeist must die!

Lyrics: Cauterized

October 31st, 2009 by

Cauterized

The story starts, the story ends, nothing left, but to pretend.
We never loved, nothings here, the memory will just disappear.
Born to live, lived to die, but never truly alive.
Your convictions ensure nothing will survive.

And as your world falls apart I will stand here and laugh,
and when the world is no more you will see somethings are worth fighting for.

A new day, a new way, to place the blame once more, you know were reaching for the sun. (it burns my eyes).
Do you care my nightmares show I never learned to read between the lines?
(My wounds have healed) their cauterized.

The light of mankind buried for eternity under six feet of pain and loneliness.
So fill your hearts with remorse and empathy, as I unfold this tale of pathetic tragedy.

And when the world is no more, you will see somethings are worth fighting for.

A new day, a new way, to place the blame once more, you know were reaching for the sun. (it burns my eyes).
Do you care my nightmares show I never learned to read between the lines?
(My wounds have healed) their cauterized.

The world is bleak, your bed’s been made, now sleep in it, don’t be afraid.
The world is bleak, your bed’s been made, now sleep in it, don’t be afraid.

And as your world falls apart I will stand here and laugh,
and when the world is no more, you will see somethings are worth fighting for.

A new day, a new way, to place the blame once more you know were reaching for the sun, we will survive!

A new day, a new way, to place the blame once more, you know were reaching for the sun. (it burns my eyes).
Do you care my nightmares show I never learned to read between the lines?
(My wounds have healed) their cauterized.

A new day, a new way, to place the blame once more, you know were reaching for the sun. (it burns my eyes).
Do you care my nightmares show I never learned to read between the lines?
(My wounds have healed) their cauterized.

Lyrics: Scars Of You

October 31st, 2009 by

Scars Of You

As I kneel at the shallow grave of the stranger I used to be,
I wash thy hands in the blood of pride and vanity,
And where a heart once beat lay a stone so cold it could freeze the fires of hell.
This is where we close the book because there’s no more stories to tell.

You helped me kill the man that I used to be, I’m dead inside.

These are the reasons I wont justify, this world you built of twisted lies,
and in my memories I can see the truth.
There to remind me of the scars of you.

Is it hopeless to try and change what just wasn’t meant to be?
Or should i just accept this fate, I’ve been handed as my destiny?

These are the reasons I wont justify, this world you built of twisted lies,
and in my memories I can see the truth.
There to remind me (there to remind me) of these scars of you.

These are the reasons I wont justify, this world you built of twisted lies,
and in my memories I can see the truth.
There to remind me (there to remind me) of the scars of you.

These Scars Of You!!

Lyrics: Reflections

October 31st, 2009 by

Reflections

Reflections in the glass of a broken home, I’m a stranger to everyone I used to know.
This air is poisoned with the taste of regret, Stained with the memories I only wish I could forget.

Bury the shattered remains of this legacy of pain.
Another eternity standing in line, Waiting for the day of this never-ending night.

With a lost stare my nightmares are slowly becoming reality.
Every step I take I’m fighting for this life.
As I scream will these bad dreams ever be laid to rest?
I won’t suffer from this guilt that doesn’t belong to me.

As you look inside yourself.
You see shards of a broken soul.
Worn down by this life you know.
And now you, have nowhere left to go.

Another eternity standing in line, Waiting for the day of this never-ending night.

With a lost stare my nightmare are slowly becoming reality.
Every step I take I’m fighting for this life.
As I scream will these bad dreams ever be laid to rest?
I won’t suffer from this guilt that doesn’t belong to me.

With a lost stare my nightmare are slowly becoming reality.
Every step I take I’m fighting for this life.
As I scream will these bad dreams ever be laid to rest?
I won’t suffer from this guilt that doesn’t belong to me.
