"Hamilton, Ontario - Canada's steel town and the stomping ground for the heavy metal cacophony, which is Solemn Oath.
Dave (guitar, vocals) and Kevin (bass, backup vocals) have been playing in club bands together since 1982, playing the gamut of cover tunes that all musicians must if they want to eat. Solemn Oath was formed on October 31, 1994 as a vehicle for their original material. The band's line-up is rounded out by Rick (drums, backup vocals).
Their music is influenced by "everybody who ever twanked on a guitar" according to Dave, though one can hear particular references to Metallica, Black Sabbath and Megadeth with a smattering of AC/DC thrown in. The music is heavy, yet not lacking in melodic anthem-like power. The lyrics tend towards the serious, yet there is an underlying satire.
The year 2019 marked 25 years of Solemn Oath! Three guys with close to a century of music experience between them.
