Sanctus Bellum Gallops Down Treacherous New Path on Sophomore Album

For a year supposedly prophesied by the ancient Mayans to herald the end of all existence, 2012 has been disappointingly doom-and-gloom free thus far. No ominous comets, no Biblical plagues -- not even a triple-digit heat wave yet.

Luckily, local doom/classic metal band Sanctus Bellum is ready to inject a little existential dread into our fine city's musical fabric before we all perish from an overabundance of optimism.
