Though not officially a supergroup (if that's ever an official designation, anyway), Savage Oath features members of multiple legendary heavy metal bands and just surprise-released their debut self-titled EP on Bandcamp yesterday, promising an LP to follow as well. The band includes Brendan Radigan (Pagan Altar, Sumerlands) on vocals, with Carlos Llanas (ex-Eternal Champion) and Leeland Campana (Visigoth) on guitar, plus Phil Ross (ex-Manilla Road) on bass. Though band members alone aren't enough to guarantee quality, this brief EP quickly asserts its might: epic heavy metal delivered with boundless energy and a distinct lack of glossy overproduction. This is burly, in-the-fray epic metal that adds some grit to its fantasy.

Enough words - listen below. I'm writing this news post before we've even gotten any promotional info on this, but follow their Bandcamp for more information.
