SANCTUS (TX) are now RADDAR. Vintage recordings newly released!

Post#1 » Sun Aug 11, 2019 3:26 am

Long time Corroseumites may recall a 1980 demo recording of the song 'Storm Is Coming', (which is actually called 'Comin' Your Way'), by a mysterious Dallas/Fort Worth band called Sanctus which i posted in poisonoise many years ago : viewtopic.php?f=11&t=5660
Well, after a long & convoluted gestation period they've just released a remastered 17 song album collecting their vintage demo recordings from 1978/1979 entitled 'Transmission'. However, because several other bands have used the Sanctus name in the years since the Texan group trod the boards, they've adopted the bandname RADDAR instead.


01. Hammer
02. Flyer
03. Caught in the Game
04. For One and for All
05. Transmission
06. Run for Your Life
07. Promised Land
08. Lost and Found
09. See the Show
10. Take the Fall
11. Get Ready
12. Comin' Your Way
13. Sing Your Song
14. Lightnin' N Thunder
15. Heart on Fire
16. Writing's on the Wall
17. Lost Empire


Ronnie Hester : Vocals
Randee Lee : Guitar, Vocals, Organ
Gary 'Razar' King : Guitar, Bass, Vocals
Frances Foxe : Bass, Vocals
Gary Priest : Drums


The 'Transmission' CD is now available from the Raddar website at:

mp3 album sampler: ... 675ff8.mp3

and they have a facebook page at:

Note :
The version of 'Comin' Your Way' on 'Transmission' is an entirely different recording & arrangement from the one which i previously posted, but that 1980 version can be found on the 2010 ShroomAngel Records V/A compilation album 'Bringing It All Back Again'. ... se/9842378

Yep, and $30.00 for the US. Pretty outrageous pricing there. Doubt they'll be flying out the door.

Greetings, Randee Lee and Razar King from the band RADDAR checking in. Razar and I are very excited for the interest in our project from the 70's. The recording that started all this was actually a song called Comin' Your Way from the current Cd Transmission. That original recording was from an unfinished demo session left on the tail end of another signed band's master tape. Although that version was never approved for distribution, it did put us in touch with some great fans. That being said, we want as many fans as possible to enjoy the completed and approved rendition of this great rockin' release. What you get is 17 previously unreleased tracks of pure Texas melodic hard rock which basically would have been a double album back then. We realize the price on the website seems a bit much due to international shipping rates (20.00 including packaging) as well as time consuming for arrival (10 days for some). Prices are now 20.00 digital download, 25.00 US physical and 35.00 international physical. What we have decided to do is offer a digital download of the complete recording to anyone who does not want a physical CD and would like to save shipping and get immediate sonic gratification. Oh yeah!
Please go to and click on the digital download button and follow the instructions.
If you would like to hear more before buying go to our label EPK site at for a musical teaser.
Feel free to contact us at as we look forward to hearing from each and every one of you.
Thanks again,
Randee Lee & Razar King
