Hounds of Megiddo
release: June 9th, 2015
What would happen if Venom, Thin Lizzy, Motorhead and Mercyful Fate formed a band, with Cronos on vocals?
Maybe what would take place is Vigilance! It’s cult metal for people into Manilla Road and Brocas Helm, bands that play heavy metal that is dark and obscurantist. You would think that (1) this mix of sounds is impossible/improbable to come up with and to hold together and that (2) this band is comprised of old folks who were young in the late 70s and early 80s. Apparently, this is a young band from Slovenia and this is what they came up with. Unfriggingreal. I mentioned the magic words Manilla Road. What else do you want?!
Check it out:
Born from the depths of Adelsberg, VIGILANCE have been unleashing a blackened heavy metal assault on your ears since Walpurgisnacht 2010. Inspired both by the harmonic arts of NWOBHM bands and the sepulchral elements of the first wave of black metal, VIGILANCE deliver a thunderous, yet melodic sonic blasphemy. Over the years, the band has released numerous demos, an EP and a full length album, firmly fortifying their place in the European underground. After a few line up changes and many live rituals, VIGILANCE are back with a vengeance - a brand new album, called "HOUNDS OF MEGIDDO".
