CEBU CITY, Philippines— Cebuano talents just keep on giving!
This time, Cebuano band “Adamanta” shares some folk and metal vibes with their new song entitled “Conquer.”
“Conquer came about from a thirst to connect with our roots. It’s both a prayer and promise to be strong and seek glory with the help of our ancestors,” said the band.
The song was introduced with an impressive music video that offers some movie soundtrack feels injected with some history of the Visayas region.
“By channeling western European folk motifs, it’s a pull to those unfamiliar to Filipino culture that we, Visayans, were raiders, warriors, and seafarers similar to that of western Vikings,” they added.
Here’s a teaser the band shared:
