Known for their skill and prowess in Progressive Power Metal, Lords Of Black are poised to wow fans once again with their sixth studio album: Mechanics Of Predacity, scheduled for a global release via Frontiers Music on March 15, 2024. With compelling lyrics, and powerful and passionate musicality, the songs are all expertly combined in this amazing record. Mechanics Of Predacity represents a pinnacle in the band’s career. Lords Of Black’s creative ability is demonstrated by the outstanding compositions of Tony Hernando, the powerful drumming of Jo Nunez, the great bass guitar of Dani Criado, and of course the expressive voice by Ronnie Romero.
