Do you miss the 60’s? Lucky for you, The Conquerors are delightfully (and very obviously) turning into The Beatles.

You can tell The Conquerors have been hard at work over the past few months coming up with and implementing new ideas to expand their sound. The pace is quicker, the beats are outside of the box, and the screams are more Paul McCartney-esque.
