Bastards & Conquerors (2009)

Melodic Black Metal

Sworn may be one of the most underrated bands out there today. Formed in 2005 in Bergen, Norway they have released 2 full lengths and a demo. They definitely have that Melodic Norwegian Black Metal sound (along the lines of Windir at times) but there is also some Swedish influence, ala-Dissection. Their second album, Bastards & Conquerors is a melodic masterpiece, to me at least. A friend of mine randomly stumbled upon them many years ago, and I was hooked ever since. It was hard to decide between this album and their first album, "The Alleviation" (which featured the vocals of Lars Jensen of Myrkgrav), but I feel that this one has more of a wide appeal than the first one. Check them out if you like Melodic BM.
