VISIGOTH plays heavy metal that hearkens back to the golden age of ironclad riffwork and powerful vocals. They pay tribute to the titans of steel that left their mark on the history of the genre, and their earth-shaking sound echoes with a deep reverence for their roots. VISIGOTH goes above and beyond mere imitation, making their own musical mark on the genre they lovingly embrace. In VISIGOTH‘s realm, there are no frills, no gimmicks; there is only heavy metal.
“If wizards, battles and crunchy riffs roll your 20-sided die a critical hit, heed Visigoth’s call. On its debut album, the Salt Lake City power-metal band looks to Manowar, Judas Priest and Manilla Road (“Necropolis” gets covered here) for that classic ’80s sound, but the production is decidedly heavier, with mammoth choruses led by Jake Rogers’ regal voice.” NPR Music
