ALBUM CONQUEROR'S OATH
OUT 2018 (Feb 2nd)
LABEL METAL BLADE RECORDS
OUR RATING 81/100
After the well received THE REVENANT KING, the expectations were highest, and we can be satisfied from the new CONQUEROR'S OATH.
Maybe not a masterpiece, but surely a job well-done and well produced.
This platter starts with STEEL AND SILVER, epic thanks to vocals of JAKE ROGERS; maybe a bit repetitive.
Surely better WARRIOR QUEEN, more direct and effective; to remind the melodic break with the great flute's interlude played from Jake.
Another step forward with OUTLIVE THEM ALL, a right mix of rhythm, epic mood and speed, with a great double solo and enhanced from a great drummin' job.
HAMMERFORGED is heavier, more classic while TRAITOR'S GATE starts in waitin', full of emphasis..epic and mighty!
SALT CITY is a great tribute to their hometown, fast with a fancy riffin'.
BLADES IN THE NIGHT goes on in the same way before the title track, full of emphasis and emotions.
A GREAT RETURN BY VISIGOTH KEEPIN' HIGH THE FLAG OF BEST TRADITION!
