Commented by Lord Tim:
“From a business point of view, we are doing this to regain control of our rights and make sure the writers of these great songs get their well-deserved time in the spotlight. Due to labels folding or not really getting behind these albums the first time, a lot of this material was lost in the background noise. This release gives us the opportunity to give these songs a second chance, and hopefully for the ex-Dungeon members who wrote a lot of this material to see something back for all of their amazing work.From an artistic point of view, while we’ve been proud of everything we’ve ever done and it was the best we could do at the time, there was always a desire to hear this done not just “as good as we could do” but “exactly as we always imagined it.” Due to budget or technology restraints, there was always a level of compromise. This release answers the question: “What if it wasn’t like that?”
And from a continuity point of view, we really consider Dungeon to be the first era of the band we’re currently calling LORD. We still play the Dungeon back-catalogue live, and now with this being Dungeon’s 25th anniversary, it was a good opportunity to expose new fans to these awesome old songs, and formally unite both eras of the band.”
Lord – Andrew Dowling Interviewed by Simon Lukic Transcription by Mike ‘Fucking Hostile’ Holmes< ?xml:namespace prefix = o />
LORD is the next stage in the evolution of one of Australia’s premier Metal exports, Dungeon. After 16 years and 6 full length albums founding member Lord Tim made the unexpected decision to lay Dungeon to rest and resurrect his vision (as well as continue his musical legacy) under the band name LORD. Here I interview bassist Andrew Dowling and we begin by discussing the creation of the new album – the very impressive ASCENDENCE.

Pics and review by Brat
UNDER RAVEN SKIES was a festival organized by people from Wagga Wagga—half way between Sydney and Melbourne—in the name of the MS Society. What better way to increase the street cred of metal in this hell on Earth than by demonstrating a social conscience.
With a healthy dose of cynicism I attended the first Annual Australian Heavy Metal Music Awards in Canberra the night before Metal for the Brain (MFTB). Brought to us by the Australian edition of Kerrang Magazine and the organisers of MFTB, I decided to give our scene some support and cast my vote in the categories even though I didn?t think any of the people and bands I voted for would get a mention. How wonderfully was I surprised.
