Brothers of Conquest All The Colors Of Darkness

These dudes have the '80s metal thing down like a stud on a fingerless black leather glove. Songs starting with the sound of galloping horses while church bells ring, sneering band member photos and song titles like "Hot Southern Nights" and "Curse Of The Witch." Musically, this falls somewhere between Dio and Motörhead. And although it would be easy to write this off as a cheeky take on the genre, they do it so well that it's hard not to enjoy. The songs really do rock and you're likely to find your head banging along to most of them. So slip into those tight jeans, bust out the cut-off denim jacket and let the Brothers of Conquest take you on a ride into oblivion. (Go-Kart)
