Dan says about “Master Of You”:

“One of the collaborative efforts on the album, Master Of You is short and sweet. On a distinctly European-sounding album, this is one of the few songs that has a more  American vibe. Hence, the choice to invite my good friend Matt Mitchell  to perform the vocals was an obvious one. With his laid-back phrasing and Springsteen-esque rasp, Matt pours his bluesy swagger into every line, a coolness that is hard to beat!

Thematically, the song is about addiction. But not necessarily addiction to booze or other substances in a ‘Rock & Roll cliché’ kind of way. It’s more about addiction in a broader sense, and how we as humans tend to replace one addiction with another, until we reach a point where we hardly recognise ourselves in the mirror. Whether it’s addiction to sugar and caffeine, TV and our phones, growth and ambition, toxic relationships, sex… we all have some monkey or other to bear.”

Digital single of “Master Of You” is now available across all digital and streaming platforms!

After a decade of sessioning for an array of Bands and Artists in London, most notably taking the Trad-Metal Band Monument from its urban origins to playing main stages at festivals all over Europe, it was high time for Dan Baune to write and record some music of his own. Together with trusted friend and power-house drummer Sebastian Weiss, Dan wrote and arranged an album that pays homage to their musical roots, chiefly Thrash Metal, NWoBHM and Melodic Death Metal from the early noughties.

The album showcases the duo’s versatility and represents a new beginning for Dan in particular. As he left London behind in 2020 in favour of his ancestral home Germany, Lost Sanctuary not only brings him back to his roots, but also serves as a catharsis of sorts: Out with the old, in with the new!

“Lost Sanctuary” will be released through ROAR! Rock of Angels Records, physically and digitally worldwide on May 14, 2021.
