Welcome to another week of Mosh Pit Monday. Not much to report here music wise but the weather is definitely getting cooler in Brisbane. Days are still nice and sunny but the evenings are getting cooler. The contract I’m currently working on is finally coming to an end and I’m going to get some serious recording in progress. Got about 23 songs on the go that just need fine tuning and some serious lyrics written to. Can’t wait to share with you all what I’ve been working on.
Today’s shout out goes to an Aussie band, LORD who have been followers of mine on Twitter for a while. LORD are a metal/rock band out of Sydney/Woollongong who have been on the metal scene for over 25 years. The lead singer, Lord Tim started his career with prolific metal band DUNGEON who toured with such bands as MEGADETH. (One of my fiance’s friends she knows from her children’s school, Glenn Williams was also in DUNGEON. Small world!) Once DUNGEON disbanded, LORD was formed and they continued their success in 2006 with a national tour with QUEENSRŸCHE and have remained a force to be reckoned with in the Australian metal scene.
Band members consist of Lord Tim on vocals and lead guitar, Andy Dowling on bass and backing vocals, Mark Furtner on guitars and backing vocals. Their style is very much in the same vein as heavy metal classic 80’s bands like JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, SLAYER and early METALLICA. Could they be the best kept secret in the world of heavy metal? I’d love to check them out live.
You can check out their early DUNGEON stuff and more recent tunes on their Youtube channel, follow them on Facebook or Twitter. If it’s the old fashioned, thrash metal with melodic vocals you crave, you really should check out LORD. Thanks for following guys!
Hope you have a great week in music and keep rocking! m/ m/
