Silent Sanctuary is a 5-piece Filipino band. They entered the OPM (Original Pilipino Music) scene in 2006 with their songs “Rebound”, “Ikaw Lamang”, “Summer Song”, “Kundiman”, and “Ingat ka”. In their second studio album called Mistaken for Granted, the album's first single is called "Hay Naku" and the second one is called "Hiling".


Silent Sanctuary was formed in 2001 with just three founding members: Norman Dellosa (vocals, guitars), Paolo Legaspi (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Allen Calixto (drums). As a growing band, they experimented in their music by mixing in classical instruments to make a unique sound, adding the fourth member, Norman's high school classmate Anjo Inacay (cellist) to the line-up. In 2002 they were asked to guest in UnTV's In the Raw where Anjo asked Jett Ramirez to create string arrangements for their performance. More string instrumentalists joined them during that single episode. Later, Jett and Chino David (violinists) were both asked as formal members of the band. In February 2004, they released an independently produced full length album in Millennia Bar and Cafe in Kamuning entitled Ellipsis of the Mind. Jett Ramirez later on left the band.[1]

Later on, Sarkie Sarangay took over vocal duties for the band after Norman Dellosa's departure. Jason Rondero, vocalist/bassist of indie band New Modern became the band’s new bassist when Paolo Legaspi left the band after the successful debut album called Fuchsiang Pag-ibig. Anjo Inacay left the band temporarily due to his studies at Boston in within two consecutive years


Silent Sanctuary’s second album Fuchsiang Pag-ibig,[2] was released under Universal Records in 2007. They did this with the help of their manager Kerwin Rosete who has worked for Parokya ni Edgar, and now the person behind One Big Family Artist Management who also manage other OPM bands like Itchyworms, Ciudad, Soapdish, Overtone, Wandering Dew, and Concrete Sam.

Their third album called Mistaken for Granted[3] was released on March 27, 2009 under Universal Records with Rommel “Sancho" Sanchez and Buddy Zabala as producers.

Silent Sanctuary spices up their signature “classical music meets rock music” sound with the release of their 4th album called “Monodramatic” in 2013.[4] Under Ivory Music & Video Inc., they launched the most awaited album since the last releasing way back 4 years ago.

Silent Sanctuary sings Angel Eyes theme song "Sa'yo" at the #MyxMo2014 concert.
