California’s SAVIOURS continue to forge ahead with towering riffs, colossal rhythm, monumental guitar harmonies and an obsession with the end of times, the occult, psychedelics and the arcane. Still building upon the the foundation that BLACK SABBATH, IRON MAIDEN, THIN LIZZY and MOTORHEAD laid,
SAVIOURS are back with a vengeance on their highly anticipated new album “Palace Of Vision”, their first release in over 4 years.
Saviours are always good for a healthy dose of gnarly, NWOBHM fun; just the right amount of dirty rawness and just the right amount of Thin Lizzy polish. But, best of all, they never repeat themselves, which is so often the downfall of “reliable” bands: they twist things up just enough to make each release an engaging listen, as they’ve done now over the course of five full-lengths and two EPs spanning a decade-plus career.
Pastor started jamming in late 2012. The group consists of four young men with an intense love to the art of music. Their various influences can be drawn from your dad’s record collection (well, if he was actively listening from 1968 to 1978). The tunes are filled with fine riffs, spaced out solos and hard hitting rhythm sections. Yet Pastor tries to break through the niche and clichés by mixing the sound with a bands unique character.
Their debut album “Evoke” was released in 2015 on Who Can You Trust? Records.
