From Sweden hails just another Retro-Rock band. Yes, this review could be that easy and even end there, however, Dead Lord are just so much more than that! This style may be in fashion and gain many raised eyebrows when mentioned again and again, but that does not mean there isn’t something to discover here. To prove the point, the debut album of these four Swedes is the one that lets fans forget dozens of mediocre records that have been listened to lately. Dead Lord renews the love for old style music, the stuff that was great in the seventies and early eighties, and never fails to amaze today when played right.

The self-titled album conjures the spirit of one of the greatest bands: Irelands, and one of the greatest performers of Hard Rock ever: Thin Lizzy and Phil Lynott. Indeed, one is close to mark Dead Lord a Thin Lizzy copy, and that would not be wrong at all, if the songs would not just make you tap your feet, nod your head, and sing along. However, you will have so much fun that you cannot do anything but acknowledge that you had such a good time with a collection of eight straight rockers for such a long time as you did with these forty minutes of tongue-in-cheek (oh yes, just take a peek at the band pic in the booklet) Retro-style-Lizzy-twin-guitar Rock.

Sure, neither the lead singer Hakim Krim nor any of his colleagues will probably win the next poll as one of the most brilliant of their profession, but it is the overall band composition that makes this the best Swedish Rock album since Hinsingen Blues.

    Frank was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio, based out of Bavaria, Germany. He has worked in the games industry for more than 20 years, now on the manufacturing side, before on the publishing end. Before this, he edited and handled the layout for a city mag in northern Germany ... maybe that is why he love being part of anything published. Frank got hooked on Metal at the age of 14 when a friend introduced him to AC/DC. They were listening to The Beatles, Madness, and The Police, and he decided they should move on. Well, they did, Back in Black became Frank's first Metal album, and since Germany is reasonably close to England, they had some small New Waves Of British Heavy Metal washing up on their shores: Tygers Of Pan Tang, Samson, Gillan, Iron Maiden, Saxon, Sweet Savage, Diamond Head, etc. If he had to pick his favorite styles, Prog and Power Metal would be at the top of the list.
