LORD – LIVE AT THE METRO

LORD - LIVE AT THE METRO

Full show from December 2006 now available as streaming video
Link here – http://www.lord.net.au/metro.php

Australian melodic metallers LORD announce the release of the full-length video of their classic 2006 concert “Live – At The Metro”.

 

After the demise of Dungeon in late 2005, LORD came to be a true band rather than a side project of then-Dungeon frontman Lord Tim. From early 2006, the band hit the Australian touring circuit hard, touring nationally both as a headliner and playing support to bands such as Queensryche and Gamma Ray. The culmination of this years intensive touring ended with a high-profile end of year show at Sydney’s prestigious Metro Theatre.

 

LORD’s 2006 lineup, which included Lord Tim on vocals/guitars, Andy Dowling on bass, Tim Yatras on drums and Mav Stevens on guitars performed a 90 minute long show with material ranging from the first Dungeon EP “Changing Moods”, right through the entire Dungeon catalogue, including the final Dungeon album “The Final Chapter” which was released just as the band dissolved. The set-list also featured songs from LORD’s first “solo album” CD “A Personal Journey” and covers ranging from Helloween, W.A.S.P. and Megadeth.

 

This show marked the end of the original ‘true’ LORD line up as this was the final appearance of guitarist Mav Stevens as a member of the band. This also proclaimed a new chapter in the bands history where they began writing the critically acclaimed 2007 album ‘Ascendence’.

 

The video was filmed entirely by the fans and featured pro-recorded/produced audio. For the first time, this show is available for streaming in its entirety at the LORD site. http://www.lord.net.au/metro.php

 

It’s an intriguing look back at the beginnings of the band as we know it today, with songs that have rarely been played live since that time. We hope you enjoy it!

Melodic metallers LORD announce new EP, reveal track-listing, cover art and guests.

August 20th, 2010
LORD - 'Return Of The Tyrant'

LORD - 'Return Of The Tyrant'

Commented LORD mainman L.T., “Finally we can release all of the details about our forthcoming EP ‘Return Of The Tyrant‘ that will be out in the next few weeks. For something that started out as a quick, fun project to give everyone something to listen to while they wait for us to release our next album, it turned into a major undertaking in the end but it was all worth the extra effort. As far as EPs go, this is a long one; close to an album length of music, with eleven songs including the title track which clocks in around the ten minute mark.

“As for the songs themselves, we have ‘Return Of The Tyrant‘ which is essentially part two of the old DUNGEON song ‘Tarranno Del Mar’. We’d always felt that the original story was unfinished and the intention was to revisit it at some point, but then DUNGEON broke up in 2005 and we continued on as LORD instead, and the idea was shelved. The original riffs that were floating around for that sequel have now finally made it to a recording. Unlike ‘Tarranno Del Mar’ which suffered all manner of budget and technical issues, we were able to go all-out on ‘Return Of The Tyrant’ and fully orchestrate it, bring in actors, dozens of guitar parts and literally hundreds of voices in the choirs. It truly is an epic! It was also great to have our good friends and ex-band mates Tim Yatras and Mav Stevens come in to be a part of the choir.

“Long-time fans of the band will know we love playing cover songs and we have a massive list of songs we want to record ranging from BON JOVI to BATHORY and beyond. This time we’ve recorded a cover of SYMPHONY X’s classic ‘Of Sins And Shadows’ and the 80s pop hit by CUTTING CREW ‘(I Just) Died In Your Arms’ which features lead vocals by [bassist] Andy Dowling. During our last Australian tour, we did some unplugged shows. That sparked the idea of recording some unplugged versions of LORD and DUNGEON songs one day, so we decided to include some on this EP: ‘Against The Wind‘, ‘100 Reasons‘, ‘Rain‘, ‘New Horizons‘, ‘Paradise‘ and ‘Eternal Storm‘. And if all of that wasn’t enough, we’ve also put on two extra mixes of ‘Return Of The Tyrant’ – an orchestral version and a shorter radio edit.

“As usual, we’ve had our friend Felipe Machado Franco [BLIND GUARDIAN, RHAPSODY, ICED EARTH, GAMMA RAY] handle the cover art, which will also be featured on shirts that we’ll be selling on our current tour. We’re still hard at work writing the next LORD album, but we hope you enjoy the new EP until it’s done. Keep an eye on http://www.lord.net.au for the upcoming release date of the EP.”

Full track-listing for the EP:

1. Return Of The Tyrant

The band recently released a tongue-in-cheek cover of KYLIE MINOGUE’s “On A Night Like This”, which become an instant success, and must see for many.

LORD announce tour, and new EP

July 14th, 2010
Lord: The Tyrants Return 2010 Tour

Lord: The Tyrants Return 2010 Tour

Melodic metal favourites LORD have unveiled their latest touring venture, taking them across Australia once again, including trips to the far north, as well as making their way back to Japan for the second year in a row. The band have also announced their latest EP release ‘Return of the Tyrant’ which will be released in the coming months.

Commented LORD main man LT, “We’re finally able to announce the tour dates for the rest of the year. This was a logistical nightmare with so many other high-profile acts touring Australia right now,meant that some places we wanted to get to just weren’t realistic this time around. This tour will also include our run of shows in Japan with DORO and Jaded Heart, which we’re extremely excited about”

“The other great news is we have a new LORD release out soon; an EP entitled ‘Return of the Tyrant’. Anyone who has followed our history knows about Dungeon, the band that spawned LORD after it dissolved in 2005. Dungeon had a popular song called ‘Tarranno Del Mar’ – a fun pirate themed song that LORD still enjoys playing to this day. We felt it was time to revisit the story and write the next part in the saga. The song ‘Return Of The Tyrant’ is full of piratey singalongs and is nearly ten minutes long, so it’s quite an epic! Apart from that, we have some cool cover songs and a whole bunch of cool interpretations of LORD and Dungeon songs, so there’s quite a lot of material for an EP. We’ll be revealing the full track list and cover art really soon.”

LORD – ‘100 Reasons’ video released

June 16th, 2010

Australian melodic rockers LORD have released a video clip for the song “100 Reasons” which was featured on their most recent album “Set In Stone”.

Commented LORD mainmain LT, “We had a lot of fun doing this clip, throwing food around the house, trying not to get busted by mall security and doing possibly some of the most ridiculous cheesy stage moves you’ll ever see! Thankfully no one needed to wear the little gold hot pants this time, I still have nightmares about that! This is just one of a few really cool things we have on the boil this year, so keep an eye on our site.”

This video clip follows the release of LORD’s video for their cover of KYLIE MINOGUE’S “On A Night Like This” which raked up over 20,000 views in under a week.

LORD will return to Japan in October for a run of shows with DORO and JADED HEART, ahead of more Australian touring in the last part of the year.

Born from the ashes of DUNGEON, one of Australia’s longest running metal bands, LORD has gone on to tour nationally and internationally with bands such as QUEENSRYCHE, NEVERMORE, SAXON, NIGHTWISH, GAMMA RAY and more. Their last album “Set In Stone” featured guest performances by Pete Lesperance (HAREM SCAREM), Craig Goldy (DIO), Felipe Andreoli (ANGRA) and a host of other well known artists from around the world.

Nightwish, Enmore Theatre, Sydney Australia

 Review and photos by  Brat

with special comments from Aussie Metalchild (bassist of LORD)

"I love you Anette!" rang out from a young female fan in the first few rows of Sydney’s Nightwish show.

"I love you too," came the wide-smiled and warm reply from Nightwish’s new singer, Anette Olzon, as she made the stage her own and left us with no doubt her place was with this band.

Lord – Andrew Dowling

October 12th, 2007


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.
