Sergeant Thunderhoof's This Sceptred Veil is a colossal epic that draws on the ancient myths and legends of the South West of England. Recorded in their home town of Bath (UK) by Josh Gallop (Phoxjaw) and mastered by Tony Reed (Mos Generator), this new LP sees the band explore darker and denser territory than their previous albums.
The album opens with the title track, a seven-minute epic that sets the tone for the rest of the record. The song is a slow-burning build, with a heavy groove and soaring vocals. It's a powerful statement of intent, and it's clear that Sergeant Thunderhoof are not messing around.
The rest of the album follows a similar pattern, with each song exploring a different aspect of the band's sound. There are moments of heavy metal, stoner rock, and even folk, all wrapped up in a unique and atmospheric package.
This Sceptred Veil is a challenging album, but it's also a rewarding one. Sergeant Thunderhoof have created something truly special here, and it's an album that will stay with you long after you've finished listening.
