CONVENT GUILT announces today the artwork of their much anticipated debut full-length “Guns for Hire” which will be released on LP by Cruz del Sur Music and on CD by Shadow Kingdom Records. As you can see, the painting of these four heavy metal horsemen riding onto a barren horizon hints at the best graphic tradition of classics such as MANILLA ROAD, CIRITH UNGOL and other obscure and timeless classic hard rock and metal.
This is what CONVENT GUILT from Sydney, Australia amply delivers: it sounds like a mix of the glorious and gritty ‘70s hard rock, the darker side of the NWOBHM and early ‘80s heavy metal from both sides of the Atlantic. Formed in 2010, the Guilt released their initial 4 track demo in mid-2012 and recently recorded their debut LP ‘Guns for hire’. Featuring veterans of the Aussie metal scene, CONVENT GUILT is a relatively new name – but it’s destined to conquer the heart and soul of any fan devoted to the early 80s metal sound.
In the classic tradition of every NWOBHM band, CONVENT GUILT‘s debut contains 8 killer tracks:
Angels in Black Leather
Don’t Close Your Eyes
They Took Her Away
Convicts At Arms
Raw, dirty and yet terribly catchy guitar riffs (some even hinting at early AC/DC!) will carry you back to the golden age of metal: song titles such as “Angels in Black Leather”, “Desert Brat” or “Perverse Altar” tell more of what you will get in this album than any words could… CONVENT GUILT‘s filthy vocals and its massive rhythmic section finally produce an overdose of muddy rock and roll that will find its best expression during savage live shows. This is an album that smells of dust, sweat and energy – basically what metal is made of!
