2018 was the breakthrough year for American heavy metallers Visigoth, and 2019 is looking just as bright for the Salt Lake City powerforce!
There will be a few exciting announcements coming shortly from the band’s camp, but first of all, Visigoth would like to thank their loyal and constantly growing fanbase with a video clip for “Traitor’s Gate,” one of the key songs off their latest album, “Conqueror’s Oath.” The video features live footage from Visigoth‘s festival shows at Hell Over Hammaburg, Keep It True and Bang Your Head and was edited by Oliver Bomber Barth for Visions in Fear.
Their continued success has not gone undetected, and as a consequence, Visigoth has landed their first ever cover story in the new issue of the renowned German metal magazine Deaf Forever. To preview and purchase Conqueror’s Oath, click here.
Standing in staunch opposition to any presumptuous notion of “reinventing the wheel” or “redefining the genre”, Visigoth instead dedicates 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 2018 long-player “Conqueror’s Oath,” Visigoth stays true to the title and 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 of Salt Lake City to record once again with engineer extraordinaire Andy Patterson (Subrosa, Deathblow, Dreadnought, et al), “Conqueror’s Oath” was hammerforged in a whirlwind month of mayhem and mastered by Dave Otero of Flatline Audio (Satan’s Host, Nightbringer, Khemmis, et al). Immortalized by breathtaking cover art created by none other than underground album art legend Kris Verwimp (whose work has graced records by Absu, Bewitched, Desaster, Horna, Moonsorrow, Skullview, Arkona, and many, many more) 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. Prepare for the onslaught of Salt City Steel!
