The Gold Coast’s music scene is slowly but surly starting to see a growth with heavy music again and one of the bands fighting for their right o be heard are Vow To Conquer who had a pretty full on year of ups and downs. The band released their debut, self-produced Call To Arms EP and proceeded on a tour which included a slot at Perth’s Rising Force Metal Festival. While the band take some time off to plan their next step, we grabbed shred-master BM Sanchez for his contribution with our Wall of Sound 2017 Year in Review…

WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO IN 2018?
The universe is expanding in all directions at the speed of light.
A certainty exists that there are not only other planets supporting intelligent life, but for every breath taken, an Earth-like planet is being incinerated by a supernova explosion in an unstable galaxy far far away.
Yet we humans have the audacity to expand our problems to the edges of the universe, when we’ve all but severed our vows to conquer.
We can only be certain of one thing… Chaos Awaits
Brace for impact in 2018
