Swedish Rockers Dead Lord have released ‘Distance Over Time’, the stunning first single from their upcoming album ‘Surrender’, due to be released in September.
There is no denying their Thin Lizzy influences, and ‘Distance Over Time’ seeps uptempo nostalgic emotions of late 70’s, early 80’s British Classic Rock, but it is very much worth a listen.
The band told MetalTalk: “We are done recording our 4th album (titled ‘Surrender’), which we immortalized for the infinite ages together with Robert Pehrsson (Robert Pehrsson’s Humbucker, Death Breath, Dundertåget/Thunder Express etc.) in his Studio Humbucker, in Stockholm. In our very humble opinion, it’s our best album to date and we’re stoked to say that the album came out more face-meltingly awesome than we could ever have hoped for.
“The album is conceived, written and performed by Hakim Krim on lead, heart-wrenching, wailing vocals and screaming electric guitar, ripe with juicy ferocity; Martin Nordin on mid-range-madness-guitar and harmonious and angel-like backing vocals; and Adam Lindmark on the mayhem-like pandemonious expression of the animalistic instincts that are the drums. The thunderous low-range-groove-duty of the electric bass guitar was shared between Mr. Krim and Mr. Nordin for ultimate rockage.”
The band have also announced a lineup change, as they have parted ways with previous guitarist Olle Hedenström.
“We wish Olle well in his future endeavors. With Martin permanently taking up the electric guitar in Dead Lord from now on, we’d like to welcome Mr. Ryan Kemp as full-time member of Dead Lord as the new bass-man. Ryan is imported from the continent that evolution seems to completely have left to its own devices, namely the golden shores of mythical Australia.
“We’re stoked to have him on board, and can’t wait to get back on the road. Rock stages all over the world are overdue for a good face-melting! Keep an eye out for more details regarding the album and tour dates.”
