Lord: Set In Stone

When I think of Aussie metal bands, well the first one who always comes to mind is the hooks loaded Dungeon, always guaranteed to get the hands tapping and heads banging. Whilst they broke up a few years ago now, much to their many fans delight that great music continues with the band Lord. Being no real surprise as Lord Tim is the main man behind both, Tim is one guy who knows how to write great songs, delivered with his fine voice and someone who can also rip it up on the guitar. Lord originally started as a side project, but with the demise of Dungeon it became much more. Also joining Tim from Dungeon was Tim Yatras, whom recently left from Lord, but he plays drums on this new CD. They have since found a replacement, but this new musician certainly has a big spot to fill, as Tim is a great drummer and gave impressive performances with Dungeon and more recently Lord.

Lord play energetic metal the way it should be played, hard and heavy, and following on from the blazing Ascendence, which was definitely an awesome CD, with plenty of spirit and potent metal tracks, we now have the new Lord scorcher titled Set In Stone. Guest spots on Set In Stone include such names as guitarist's Craig Goldy (Dio ), and Glen Drover( ex. Megadeth and ex. King Diamond). There is an abundance of talent on this CD, adding fuel to the already thriving metal emitting from this release.

Commencing with a brief intro "Spectres Of The Ascendant", Lord's guitars are blazing next with "Redemption", the first of many furious metal numbers. "Set In Stone" is a fine rocking title track, "Forever" is another cool number that builds from a power ballad, one of the examples on Set In Stone of Lord's diversity. The band really cranks it up for "The End Of Days" and Lord Tim unleashes his darker voice which sounds great mixed with his clean vocals, this track also has another fantastic solo section. "Be My Guest" is the killer instrumental track on Set In Stone, and a showcase of the many talented guest guitar shredders it is, including those two mentioned above, for good measure there's also keyboard, bass and drum solos included.

Set In Stone is another example of fine Aussie metal, get yourself a copy now.
