Conqueror is the second full-length album from Jesu. It was released February 20, 2007 in the USA, February 19 in the United Kingdom and Europe, and February 2 in Japan.

The Japanese edition contains a bonus disc featuring the two tracks that constitute the Sun Down / Sun Rise EP.

This album features much more melody and less drone than the self-titled album.

In support of the album, the band made their United States live debut, in March 2007, as an opening act for Isis, although work permit problems caused them to miss the first three weeks of the tour.
