Overlord – Overlord


Overlord – Overlord
Self released – 2012
Rock, Hard, Metal, Blues, Stoner
Rated: ***

Founded in the early months of the year 2011; this UK based classic metal outfit’s first release employs that blues fuel and intoxicating heaviness with such devotion that the outlines of something monstrously great is shimmering at the horizon. Overlord brings gritty rock with an eerie feel. Bordering on the lo-fi production feel of something occult and doomy their slow march turns to diesel powered melancholy and optimus groove like a glorious lost gem of the olden days. These young cats know where the good mustard stems from and have felt themselves obliged to let us taste it too. Melted through that seventies denseness are quick swirls of desert stoner and chunks of progressive rock. Aah yes, four great tracks delivered by youthful open-minded rock loving fiends. A great future might lay in wait and it may be waiting just around the corner; it might indeed!

  1. This is simply excellent. The only thing I can think of that might interfere with a gigantic future is the fact that there were and are so many bands named Overlord.

  2. They are really good - BUT need someone to take care of production. That part need attention which is why I will leave this as a promise for the future.
