SALT Lake City Utah's Visigoth released their debut album The Revenant King today on Metal Blade Records. In conjunction with the release the band has partnered up
with for an exclusive premiere of the video for the title track The Revenant King. Check out the stream of the Dave Brodksy directed clip here.

Visigoth explained shooting the video: "This video was made in true DIY fashion. Almost all of the props and costumes were provided by us and our friends, and the actors in the narrative portion of the video are actually all friends of ours (Jason Stock, who plays the Usurper, works at the Wasatch/Squatter's co-op brewery with our drummer Mikey and can be seen on the bottle label for Hop Rising, the Squatter's signature double IPA; Jason Tarpey, who plays the King, is not only a good friend of ours but is also the singer for Eternal Champion, one of my favourite current US heavy metal bands; and Paul Black, who plays the Advisor, is a good buddy of ours and is the vocalist of local Salt Lake City metal band Turned to Stone).

“The outdoor shots were filmed in Oakley, a small rural mountain town in Utah. It was frigid cold out when we shot the narrative portion - Jason T's chainmail was freezing onto his skin by the end of it! The band performance shots were filmed in the Wasatch Brewery warehouse with nothing more than a minimal lighting rig and a fog machine provided by our buddy Brock Grossl (who used to play in Salt Lake City's now-defunct speed metal maniacs Castleaxe).

In Visigoth's realm, there are no frills, no gimmicks; there is only heavy metal. Read why we think so in our review here. However, we have to say on reflection that this is a track that has more than a hint of Grand Magus about it…not that is necessarily a bad thing!

After signing with Metal BladeV isigoth recorded The Revenant King. The collection of heavy metal tracks was engineered, mixed, and produced by Andy Patterson at Boar's Next Studio in Salt Lake City. Alan Douches at West Westside handled mastering.
