When the gods called for metal traditional and true, VISIGOTH answered. The year was 2010, and Jake Rogers allied his bardic magic with Lee Campana's six-string sorcery to forge a tribute to the old sound of heavy metal. Thus the demo "Vengeance" was born.
Its completion sent tremors throughout
the salted wastes of the Salt Lake City underground, attracting the attention of
powerful musical forces. Jamison Palmer slung his mighty axe over one shoulder
and trudged his way through the ice and snow of this inhospitable realm, lending
his soul-rending riffcraft to the legion. He was soon joined by the mystical
bass groove thaumaturgies of Matt Brotherton and the unrelenting storm-throned
siege of Mikey Treseder's furious drumming. Together, they became known as
As a constellation they traveled throughout the Salt
Lake valley, determined to liberate their allies from the enemies of true metal.
All who heard their mighty riffs, scorching leads, and infectious choruses
joined the Iron Brotherhood, becoming acolytes of all things heavy. After many
hard-fought battles, the band came together to record the "Final Spell"
EP in 2012, sealing the pact between them with rites ancient and
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.
The band's brand of
heavy metal fit perfectly within the ranks of Metal Blade Records, who brought
the band on board to release their debut full-length album. After signing with
the label, VISIGOTH recorded "The Revenant King". The
collection of heavy metal tracks was engineered, mixed, and produced by Andy
Patterson at Boar's Next Studio in Salt Lake City. Alan Douches at West Westside
handled mastering to offer a final product that truly represents the finest in
true metal. Today the artwork, track listing and first single have been
unleashed. Visit metalblade.com/visigoth to pre-order your copy of the album

Revenant King" Jake Rogers's powerful vocals lead the charge, and when
combined with the twin guitar attack of Leeland Campana, Jamieson Palmer, and
the rhythm section of bassist Matt Brotherton and drummer Mikey Tee, form an
immensely potent traditional heavy metal attack that fans of the genre would be
unwise to ignore!
