Power of Metal.dk Review

Digital Lies
Style: Power Metal
Release date: 24 April, 2013
Playing time: 71::55

Singer Lord Tim Grose was the founder of the Australian band Dungeon. After he stopped with Dungeon he continued with the band Lord. The style is about the same, European power metal in the vain of Edguy and Brainstorm. The songs are rather catchy and are easy to sing a long to.

The title track has harsh vocals in it and sounds therefore rather heavy, on the other hand the refrain is very melodic. The songs vary from mid-tempo to up-tempo. The faster tracks are "Point of View" and "Final Seconds" and one of the heaviest tracks is "The Chalkboard Prophet", with riffs leaning towards thrash and with aggressive vocals. The album has the typical double bass drums for this genre and the guitar parts are very nice and well performed. In the end though this is just another good power metal album, with not a lot of surprises. All executed very well and the European power metal lovers will surely appreciate it.

The last 2 songs are re-recorded tracks of their debut album 'A Personal Journey'.  With over 70 minutes of playing time, it is quite a ride and perhaps they could have left 1 or 2 songs out, but that is just a personal opinion.
