Australia’s Traditional Heavy Metal scene is truly impressive to the Shadow Kingdom Records family. We just don’t see good Heavy Metal coming out from there, we see outstanding Heavy Metal that exceeds our expectations like fellow countrymen, JOHNNY TOUCH. Thankfully Traditional Heavy Metal isn’t flooded with thousands of average bands to sift through just to find the good ones. We cannot wait for everyone to check out CONVENT GUILT! We’ve been following them very closely since they released their first demo tape. We felt this was exceptionally good and a little different that what Shadow Kingdom Records puts out since this band has an 80’s Punk flair that sometimes dominates their sound. They have a strong mix of New Wave Of British Heavy Metal bands like IRON MAIDEN and SAXON, but also with their above-mentioned Punk influence, MOTORHEAD is definitely heard feathered throughout their sound along with a heavy dose of 80's JUDAS PRIEST and 70's AC/DC. This is such a unique and interesting band that with all of these sounds mixed in, the mix of all of these influences sound really cohesive and smooth. The songs are extremely catchy and well crafted. On top of all of that, this band sounds like they’ve been recording together forever with their amazing recording sound and production. This is one of the most accessible releases of 2014, which could attract just about any kind of metal-head to unite together with this album. This is the type of Heavy Metal that if by chance they ever broke out on commercial radio, they would become huge like a band similar to The Black Keys. We’re thrilled and proud to have this band on the roster. The album cover is nothing short of amazing and with that, check out the bundle package to get a CD and T-SHIRT at the Shadow Kingdom Records online store.
