Skyryder – Vol 2 (High Roller)

High Command – Beyond The Wall Of Desolation (Southern Lord)

Visigoth – Conqueror’s Oath (Metal Blade)

I’ll clear one thing up straight away, Visigoth aren’t Goth in any way. I was once misled in a similar way by Belgian Metallers Ostrogoth, who also aren’t Goth-like…but they do have a little in common with Visigoth ironically. Not… Continue Reading →
