Visigoth - Conqueror's Oath

Conqueror's Oath
by Craig Rider at 02 February 2018, 7:53 AM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I’m proud to present to you: VISIGOTH; signed via Metal Blade Records, hailing from the United States of America - performing Power/Heavy Metal, on their 2nd album entitled: “Conqueror’s Oath” (released February 9th, 2018).

Since formation in 2010; the quintet in question have a Demo, EP, a Single and a full length album in their discography so far. I’m introduced to their 2nd full length record entitled: “Conqueror’s Oath”; 8 tracks ranging at around 42:21, the quartet provide an intricately designed slab of solid Power/Heavy Metal distinctions. Opening with “Steel And Silver”, VISIGOTH arrange hard-hitting developments of melodic battle hymns - hardened with savagely sinister instrumentation and musicianship. Jake Rogers on vocals contributes rhythmically rough yet high-pitched vocalizations that’s proficiently executed.

Consisting of Leeland Campana on lead guitar; the orchestrations here are profusely robust, as they pound with concrete consistency. “Warrior Queen” delivers unique songwriting adroitness; as the melodies continue to soar with blistering thunder, amalgamated with a primitive formula in which has an organic aesthetic of hammering creativity. Jamison Palmer also on guitar showcases complex dexterity, as the single “Outlive Them All” provides more relentless stability and nimble swiftness. Powerhouse bassist Matt Brotherton efficiently portrays a fluid substance of pummelling strumming, which coincides with the rhythmic balance exceedingly well. “Hammerferged” demonstrates elegant craftsmanship, diligently composed with elegant dynamics and exquisite fabrications which has an enlightening punchline foundation to it.

Mike T. on drums pulverizes his set with dominating force, as in “Traitor’s Gate”, there is a progressively technical element to it. Thumping with bouncy implementations and detailed construction, which slams like a clap of thunder. “Salt City” unexpectedly changed the pace which manifested with a grandiose of Hard Rock catchiness and velocity, still keeping the power in the mettle at a excitable rate. “Blades In The Night” excelled with more groovy proficiencies as the sound production prominently demonstrates a tasteful supply of battering salubriousness, like a rampaging stampede frolicking in the distance.

Overall concluding “Conqueror’s Oath” with the titular track itself, I did expect such a record to be this way and I am very pleased with the end result - Power/Heavy Metal devotees should certainly pick this one up.
