I recently stumbled across some interesting stuff while taking advantage of a recent Bandcamp Friday (where Bandcamp takes less of a cut from your purchase and sends more to the bands). The first is this quick, 3-song EP from the U.K.’s Knight’s Oath. They have an old school, NWOBHM sound, very reminiscent of the first couple of Iron Maiden albums as well as some of the lesser-known bands to come from that scene. "For Our Lord" and "Armageddon" are straightforward rockers with echo to give the vocals an epic sound and keyboards to round out the directness of the guitar/bass/drum attack. "Don’t Wait (For My Sword to Shine)" is the best track, with a smart riff and galloping bass underpinning a chorus tailor-made to be sung along with. Knight’s Oath is a hair under 10 minutes, but not a second is wasted and, while the songwriting and performances are raw, there’s undeniable promise bleeding through. I hope this EP is a sign pointing to more solid epic heavy metal from Knight’s Oath.
