CD/DVD Releases: The Culture Of Lord Volture Explored

Posted on Saturday, October 15 @ 19:25:00 UTC by nightowl

Well, maybe not the culture exactly, but it rhymed, and I'm in that kind mood. So, what the press release says is that Dutch heavy/power metal band Lord Volture joins Rock N Growl Promotion!

Lord Volture's sound and style is said to resemble US power metal masters Jag Panzer, Iced Earth, Cage and Vicious Rumours.

The band’s second full-length album Never Cry Wolf release is scheduled for 11 November 2011. The 11 tracks cover over 67 minutes of pure delicacy for the steel-hearted. Master vocalist Sean Peck from US power metal crusaders Cage sings along on one of the songs.

Lord Volture - The majestic of a lordship, the velocity and power of an electrical charge and the beastly ruggedness of a scavenging vulture' [not me this time -ed.]

Lord Volture is a heavy metal band hailing from The Netherlands founded by vocalist David Marcelis. After an explosive take-off in 2010 with the release of their debut album Beast Of Thunder and an intensive touring schedule, the band rapidly rises to find themselves in the frontier of Dutch Heavy Metal. The album thunders through the global metal community and reviewers worldwide count Beast Of Thunder among the major releases of 2010 (e.g. 10/12 Ancient Spirit, 88/100 Digital Steel, 85/100 Mario’s Metal Mania, 4/5 Maximum Metal, 9/10 Maxirock, 8.5/10 Metal District, 4/5 Metal Rules, 86/100 Metal To Infinity, 87/100 Metalfan, 5/7 Mindview, 8/10 My Global Mind and 80/100 Zware Metalen [whew]). The band’s ever growing reputation opens doors to many headline performances, as well as support shows for Blaze Bayley (UK), James Rivera’s Sabbath Judas Sabbath (US) and Conquest Of Steel (UK).

With the release of the band’s second full-length Never Cry Wolf in autumn 2011 Lord Volture progresses to the next level without abandoning their traditional sound nor the uncompromising energy that characterizes the debut album. Containing upbeat thrash tracks, grandiloquent epics as well as catchy rockers the new album is even more dynamic in nature. The tradition to invite a renown guest set on Beast Of Thunder with Annihilator’s Jeff Waters is being continued on Never Cry Wolf with no one less than Cage singer Sean Peck. But also the Lord Volture members themselves show their worth. The piercing mid and high register of singer David, the shredding solos of guitar duo Paul Marcelis/Leon Hermans and the pounding rhythm machine of bass player Simon Geurts and drummer Frank Wintermans deliver all ingredients for the ultimate metal sound. For all who bear a heart of steel, Lord Volture is a definite MUST!
