Dutch power metallers LORD VOLTURE have inked a two-album deal with Mausoleum Records. The group’s yet untitled third album, is scheduled for a release this fall.
The band has to say: “We are very honoured and happy to be affiliated with an established label with such a rich history as Mausoleum Records. We look forward to a cooperation with them and with their support we are sure the new Lord Volture album will drop like a bomb!”
The new album was produced/recorded by Bart Hennephof (Textures) and Yuma van Eekelen (Pestilence) at Split Second Sound Studio, Amsterdam, and Final Focus Studio, Tilburg, the Netherlands. Mixed by Stephen van Haestregt (Within Temptation, Ambeon) and mastered by Peer Rave at Swamp Studio, Raamsdonk, the Netherlands.
LORD VOLTURE is:
David Marcelis – Vocals
Paul Marcelis – Guitars
Leon Hermans – Guitars
Simon Geurts – Bass
Frank Wintermans – Drums
‘The majesty of a lordship, the power and velocity of an electrical charge and the beastly ruggedness of a scavenging vulture’
LORD VOLTURE are a heavy metal outfit in the tradition of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Iced Earth, hailing from the Netherlands and led by vocalist David Marcelis. After an explosive take-off in 2010 with the release of debut album ‘Beast Of Thunder’ (feat. Jeff Waters of Annihilator) the band rapidly rises to find themselves in the frontier of Dutch Heavy Metal. With their sophomore release ‘Never Cry Wolf’ (feat. Sean Peck of Cage) in 2011 the band set their definitive style while increasingly gaining recognition everywhere they’re heard. The album thunders through the global metal community and reviewers worldwide count the album among the best releases of 2011. This massive exposure opens doors to many festivals and support slots and, as a result, LORD VOLTURE have shared the stage with Primal Fear, Firewind, Tim Ripper Owens, Blaze Bayley, Vicious Rumors, Tokyo Blade, Enforcer, Steelwing, Attacker, and numerous others, while touring through the larger part of Europe.
A new head-on LORD VOLTURE metal album has been recorded and is ready for release this year. Sharper than ever, the band are ready to unleash their third chapter of high-pitched power vocals and mind boggling guitar solos onto the world. For all who bear a heart of steel, LORD VOLTURE is a definite MUST!
