Conquest - END OF DAYS

I coulda sworn I started a thread about this band/disc a while ago but damned if I can find it if I did. :blink: Anyway, I reviewed this one for Detritus late last year and it's been popping back into my playlist on and off ever since. When I first glanced @ the album cover I thought they were going to be a death metal band, but nope, Conquest is a pretty cool trad/thrash band, kinda like a mesh of Testament and Iced Earth, with a hit of COWBOYS-era Pantera groove on some tracks. Very impressive for an indie release. Though I'd never heard of the band before I got this disc, it seems that they've been kickin' it on the St. Louis area scene since 1989 (!) and have three previous full-length albums and an EP under their belts. Well worth checking out I'd say.

I'm almost positive that these guys opened for Dokken at Pops in Sauget(Illinois side of St. Louis) on Dokken's 'Erase the Slate' tour in 1999. I think they were good but they were way out of place opening for Dokken's crowd.

Haha, yeah, I would think they might be a little too crushing for a Dokken audience :yikes:

 

Maybe in their area they're "that band," i.e. the local guys who open for every hard rock/metal national act that comes thru town. Every area has one.

I remember the guitarist talking to Jeff Pilson in between soundcheck and they were standing right next to us.

He seemed like a nice guy and seemed to be a huge fan of Jeffs and Dokken but yeah they were just a little out of place in front of their audience. :lol:

    • Brilliant album...oh how I pine for a follow up 
    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!

    • One day to the show. Acoustic in a venue that looks like somebodies oversized front room.  Really should be a great night.
