This EP titled “May Your Blade Never Dull” is my
first close encounter with Britain’s Conquest of steel
featuring old classics re-recorded and news songs, including a
taster of the forthcoming album.
We get 5 songs and I must admit I really hated them
at first but after numerous listens I feel different about it. The
music of Conquest of Steel reminds me of bands like;
Iron Maiden, Warlord
Martiria and as mentioned above I wasn’t exactly thrilled at
first but after several listens the music started to open up to
me... not that I find this EP stunning in any way but let’s just say
I like it, ok?
The songs are mid-paced and have a very “Epic
atmosphere”…and it’s the guitar-runs that
hypnotize you but I could wish for more memorable choruses, however
the songs are alright but they need a little time to sink in.
The production is okay and fans of above mentioned
definitely check this band out.
