Video announcement here – https://vimeo.com/140994397

Commented ProgPower USA Co-Promoter Milton Mendonca “There is a fundamental difference between bands who want to play ProgPower USA and bands who want to become a part of the festival. LORD has shown us that they understand how special our event is and are committed to it for the long run. The fact that they play top-notch power metal and will get our crowd on fire from the first note doesn’t hurt either. We’re thrilled to have them open the festival next year.”

Andy Dowling wrote, “We’re absolutely honoured to be invited to play one of the world’s most prestigious power and progressive metal festivals. PROGPOWER is a global name and we cannot think of a better way to make our debut in the US after so many years. Our U.S. DUNGEON and LORD fans have been very patient and we’ll make sure that the wait is worth it!”

LORD, formerly known as DUNGEON, has released several critically acclaimed albums and EP releases, and has toured with the likes of SAXON, QUEENSRYCHE, ICED EARTH, NIGHTWISH, GAMMA RAY and many more.

LORD ANNOUNCES NEW RELEASE ‘THE DUNGEON ERA’ BOX SET

October 2nd, 2014

Pre order link – http://www.lord.net.au/d25y/

LORD ANNOUNCES NEW RELEASE 'THE DUNGEON ERA' BOX SET

LORD ANNOUNCES NEW RELEASE
‘THE DUNGEON ERA’ BOX SET

Australian melodic metal masters LORD have announced their latest box set release ‘The Dungeon Era‘ comprising of all 4 official Dungeonalbums (Resurrection, A Rise To Power, One Step Beyond and Pariah) re-recorded with the current band and modern production. The release is also accompanied by a USB ‘all access’ pass packed with retrospective Dungeon nostalgia as well as digital versions of the re-recordings and remix/remasters of the original releases.

Slated to be released November 1 to coincide with their appearance at the ‘Steel Assassins True Metal Festival‘ in Sydney, the band has announced exclusive pre-orders for fans through their online webstore.

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 Parts Way With Drummer, Release “Final Seconds” Video And Dungeon 25th Anniversary Details

February 17th, 2014

Aussie heavy metaller’s LORD have announced that they have mutually parted ways with drummer Damo Costas, released a video for ‘Final Seconds’ and announced plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Dungeon.

Full blog press release can be found here – http://www.lord.net.au/blog/new-video-new-tour-new-releases-and-changes/

The band commented – “Damo has reached a point where as much as he loved being in the band, losing that job he worked so hard to get will put a lot of what he’s aiming for in the future at risk, and if it comes down to choosing between sleeping in a cheap hotel in Hamburg or making sure you’re doing the right thing by your family… well, it’s a no-brainer.

So we’d like to announce that Damo has taken an indefinite break away from LORD. Like all past LORD members, no doubt he’ll end up on a recording somewhere down the track (Mav and TY appeared on ‘Return Of The Tyrant’ and TY has probably done more work with LT since he left the band, in fact) but for all intents and purposes, Damo is no longer a touring or recording member of LORD.”

Final Seconds is the third video clip to be released from the 2013 album ‘Digital Lies’ and as commented by LT, is “our best-selling, most well-received album ever – and that includes all of the official Dungeon releases too”.

Commenting on the video itself, “In honour of his (Damo’s) time in the band, we’ve cut together a new clip featuring footage from the road, backstage, recording and behind-the-scenes stuff from the last four years. Some great footage and some great memories.”

Final Seconds (OFFICIAL VIDEO) –

2014 marks the 25th anniversary of Dungeon and as LORD is a continuation of what began 25 years ago, there are plans to acknowledge and celebrate the occasion. The band has hinted of a large recording/restoration project that will tie both eras of the band together. To make the project a reality, LORD will be embarking on a run of shows to fund the venture. Dates still to be announced.

“This project will be one of the most expensive things we’ve ever done, however (getting an idea of the scale of it yet?) A lot of our friends and peers have turned to sites like Kickstarter or Indigogo to raise money for their projects, something we’ve considered in the past and we’ll likely take advantage of in the future, but we’ve decided to go old-school and literally Sing for our Supper by going out and raising money by performing.”

LORD Release Official Lyric Video For “Digital Lies”

February 10th, 2013
Lord - "Digital Lies"

Lord – “Digital Lies”

Australian melodic metallers LORD have uploaded an official lyric video for the title track from their upcoming album ‘Digital Lies’, which is due to be released February 22nd in Australia and New Zealand through Riot! Entertainment and April 24th in Japan through Rubicon Records.

‘Digital Lies’ will also be exported to the rest of the world.

Previously stated LORD mainman LT of the new album:

“If you know what LORD sounds like… well, that. We’re not reinventing ourselves or the genre at all. We haven’t tried to go off in any new and weird direction. There’s definitely an underlying dark technology vibe throughout the album as a theme, but other than that, it’s the same diverse sound that we’ve had since we were out there as DUNGEON.

But don’t take my word for it, make up your own mind!”

To also celebrate the upcoming release and official lyric video, LORD have an exclusive pre-order offer for their new ‘Propaganda’ Digital Lies t-shirts, inspired by the title track and album title. These are available at special low price for pre-order only and will be shipped out over the coming weeks. Available to order here.

LORD

LORD

Track listing for ‘Digital Lies’:

Incipio
Betrayal Blind

Point Of View
Walk Away
2D Person In A 3D World
Final Seconds
The Last Encore
Because We Can
The Chalkboard Prophet
Battle Of Venarium

Plus there will be additional bonus tracks for each country release.

Once again, our cover art was handled by Felipe Machado [BLIND GUARDIAN, IRON SAVIOR, ICED EARTH,GAMMA RAY].

LORD is essentially a continuation of DUNGEON, one of Australia’s longest running and highest profile heavy metal bands, that disbanded in 2005. LORD has released three full length albums, two EPs and a digital-only release live album, and continues to play the DUNGEON back-catalog live. The band have shared the stage with the likes of GAMMA RAY, NIGHTWISH, QUEENSRYCHE and most recently ICED EARTH and continue to tour internationally, appearing at Germany’s Headbangers Open Air festival in July. Their last critically acclaimed album, 2009′s “Set In Stone” featured guest appearances from Craig Goldy [ex-DIO], Pete Lesperance [HAREM SCAREM], Glen Drover [ex-MEGADETH], Felipe Andreoli [ANGRA], Olof Morck [AMARANTHE] alongside a host of other well known musicians.

LORD announces release date and album teaser for ‘DIGITAL LIES’

January 22nd, 2013
Lord - ‘Digital Lies‘

Lord – ‘Digital Lies‘

Australian melodic metallers LORD have set the Australian release date of their forthcoming album ‘Digital Lies‘ as February 22. Dates for New Zealand and Japan to follow, along with announcements for distribution partners for the rest of the world.

Stated LORD mainman LT:

“Finally! It seems like a lifetime since we started this album until this point, but we’re finally here. For this release, we thought long and hard about other options regarding labels and, frankly, it’s a mess out there. The larger labels are doing everything they can to protect their revenue and are being very cautious about who they deal with, and the smaller labels are at the mercy of a very volatile and changing market, and you can never be sure they’ll be still in business once the time to pay up comes around – we’ve unfortunately had to wear the consequences of that in the past.

We’ve chosen once again to distribute this release via Riot! Entertainment for Australia and New Zealand and Rubicon Music for Japan since we had such a great experience with them for our previous album ‘Set In Stone‘. For the rest of the world, however, we’ve chosen this time to keep as much control over our product as we can by planning to export to stores around the globe and sell directly from our own web store. As I mentioned before, the market is so fickle now, trusting a label to even be there let alone pay up is a risk we just can’t afford to take if we want to keep touring and releasing albums – simple as that.

Pre-sales from our online store begin from Monday, January 28 and the album will be available both as a physical product in Australia from February 22 as well as a digital download which will be available worldwide.

So what does it sound like?

If you know what LORD sounds like… well, that. We’re not reinventing ourselves or the genre at all. We haven’t tried to go off in any new and weird direction. There’s definitely an underlying dark technology vibe throughout the album as a theme, but other than that, it’s the same diverse sound that we’ve had since we were out there as DUNGEON.

But don’t take my word for it, make up your own mind! Here’s samples from the entire album. We hope you like it!”

Album teaser:

Track listing:

  1. Incipio
  2. Betrayal Blind

  7. Final Seconds

LORD

LORD

Australian metallers and ESP guitar and basses endorser’s ‘LORD‘ have released a new video clip for the track ‘Because We Can‘, taken from their upcoming album ‘Digital Lies‘.

Filmed by Dusk Music Video Production, ‘Because We Can’ features ESP endorser’s Lord Tim and Mark Furtner as they battle each other with their ESP weapons of choice, and also highlights a jaw dropping bass solo by fellow Australian ESP endorser Andy Dowling.

Lord Tim commented “Yes, we’re aware this video is dumb and contains ridiculous amounts of arguably tasteless shredding. Why do it? …. well, have a guess ;-)”.

‘Because We Can’ is the 2nd video to be released from the upcoming album ‘Digital Lies’ which is now due for a worldwide release in early 2013. The first video for ‘Betrayal Blind’ can be viewed below.

LORD: European Tour Diary Part 1

August 10th, 2012

Australian melodic metallers LORD performed at this year’s edition of the Headbangers Open Air festival, which took place July 26-28 in Brande-Hoernerkirchen, Germany. It marked the first time the members of LORD have been to Europe since 2005, when they toured as DUNGEON.

The first part of LORD’s European video tour diary, which can be seen below, sees the band “rip[ping] into each other, drink[ing] lots of beer and spend[ing] hours basically sitting on a plane. Sound boring? You’d be surprised how much fun you can have when there’s nothing much to do!” The clip features unmixed snippets from the song “Digital Lies” from LORD’s forthcoming album of the same name.

 “Digital Lies” will be released later in the year through Dominus Records. The cover art was once again created by Felipe Machado (BLIND GUARDIAN, IRON SAVIOR, ICED EARTH, GAMMA RAY).

Lord - ‘Digital Lies‘

Lord – ‘Digital Lies‘

 

The track listing for the CD is as follows:

 

01. Incipio

02. Betrayal Blind

03. Digital Lies

04. Point Of View

05. Walk Away

06. 2D Person In A 3D World

07. Final Seconds

08. The Last Encore

09. Because We Can

10. The Chalkboard Prophet

11. Battle Of Venarium

 

Commented the band: “Every artist says their new album is ‘their best work’ or their ‘heaviest’ or ‘most brutal.’ We’ll skip those clichés and say that we believe we have a solid album of good music that we’re proud of and we believe stands up to anything we’ve released so far.

“If you’re familiar with LORD, you’ll know what to expect for the most part; a very diverse album ranging from traditional metal to commercial rock to extreme metal and everything in between.

“If you’re wanting an album full of thrash songs, AOR songs, or progressive epic movie orchestral jazz djent punk songs that all sound the same, then I’m afraid you’ll be a little bewildered when the style shifts from song to song. It’s the LORD you know with a few new elements that have fallen into the melting pot since the last album.”
