“Some meetings are meant to be… Victoria Frances and Dark Sanctuary: two gates that lead to one world, the world of melancholy, fate, hope; where universal feelings are expressed in different ways, either through art or music, through colors or vibrations. This work arises from the common languages of their authors and is the fruit of a natural and desired collaboration, guided by emotion…”
The Valencian illustrator and the French band with Gothic reminiscences both sign their names to “Dark Sanctuary,” a record and book that springs from the friendship and common language of its authors.
Artist Victoria Frances and the Dark Sanctuary band, motivated by their mutual admiration, which began years ago, have united their sensitivities to create Dark Sanctuary, a record and book where the Valencian artist’s evocative and intense strokes connect perfectly with the texts and sound atmospheres proposed by the French band in this, their seventh record, in which they have worked for two years.
Dark Sanctuary includes illustrations by Victoria Frances for each and every one of the songs –with texts in the original French and their Spanish and English translations– for the cover, the dust jacket, several motifs illustrating the inside… that is, all the graphic material of the book, which comes with the band’s CD: a total of 12 songs, 58 minutes of music, in three groups of four songs each, grouped according to subject.
