An Exclusive Interview with American Heavy Metallers VISIGOTH!

After their highly successful headline run earlier this year, American Metal Warriors VISIGOTH return to Europe in July for a bunch of festival and club shows still promoting their latest album ‘Conqueror’s Oath’!

The band’s latest studio record, “1755”, outclasses all standards you have ever heard from Moonspell before, sung in their native language it’s the musical version of the year of horror when a giant earthquake destroyed the city of Lisbon and this tragic event still belongs to one of the disastrous catastrophes in European history and nature.

This album is a dark adventure, breathtaking and completely earthshaking...
