Conductor of Storms

Rated 4/5 (80%) (11 Votes)

Riding out of the cold wastes of western Canada on warhorses of steel comes Medevil with their amazing, self-released debut album Conductor of Storms. Bruising Traditional Heavy Metal is what these guys play and they play it well. Monstrous riffs and pounding, organic drums underscore the powerful vocals and intricate solos. The band has a taste for things epic, so no love songs or cliché odes to the Metal lifestyle here. Tales of fantasy and darkness fill Conductor of Storms, culminating in the sprawling "The Fabled Uxoricide." I have no idea what or where "Uxoricide" is but the title only hints at the awesomeness of the song itself. It starts slowly, almost pensively, before bowling you over with the main riff and bass line. Think Manilla Road if Sirens-era Jon Oliva was singing. Yeah, it's that good. It isn't often a band comes out of nowhere and delivers something this good but if you are a fan of The Road, Visigoth, early Omen, etc. now is the time to find a copy of Conductor of Storms as you are not going to want to be left in the wake of this horde.
