Standing in staunch opposition to any presumptuous notion of ‘reinventing the wheel' or ‘redefining the genre', Visigoth instead dedicate themselves to worshipping at the ageless altars of heavy metal with a singular focus on writing music inspired by their favorite records. Whether whipped into a frenzy ignited by classic USPM or NWOBHM anthems, or pensively meditating on traditional epic heavy metal or weighty doom-inspired moments, these Salt City hessians wear their influences proudly on their sleeves.
With their new 2017 long-player Conqueror's Oath, Visigoth conquers the sophomore slump blues with 8 iron-forged anthems of pure metal magick guaranteed to satiate the hunger of the rock'n'roll hordes! Returning to the depths of the Boar's Nest in their hometown to record once again with engineer extraordinaire Andy Patterson (Subrosa, Deathblow, Dreadnought), Conqueror's Oath was hammer forged in a whirlwind month of mayhem and mastered by Dave Otero of Flatline Audio (Satan's Host, Nightbringer, Khemmis).
Immortalized by breathtaking cover art created by none other than underground album art legend Kris Verwimp (Absu, Bewitched, Desaster, Horna, Moonsorrow, Skullview, Arkona) in proper swords-and-sorcery fashion, Conqueror's Oath stands tall on the field of battle, serving as a gauntleted fist in the face of non-believers; The Revenant King may have introduced Visigoth to skeptical audiences, but Conqueror's Oath will leave no doubt in any metal maniac's mind that this band is here to up the irons and defend the faith!
