DRAGONLORD, the California-based black metal band led by TESTAMENT guitarist Eric Peterson, has released a lyric video for the title track of its upcoming third album, “Dominion”. The disc will be released on September 21 via Spinefarm Records.
The new DRAGONLORD CD features the drumming of Alex Bent from TRIVIUM. Eric said: “[Alex] is from a younger age and different though process, but very much influenced from the classic drummers like Neil Peart. He is breathing new life into DRAGONLORD.”
Peterson previously said that the third DRAGONLORD album would feature “some pretty mature-sounding symphonic blackened thrash.” He added: “It will have more of a melodic touch to it and memorable song structures. It’s still gonna be heavy as hell, but it’s gonna be a well-rounded record. New songs ‘Kings Frost’, ‘The Devil’s Insight’ and ‘Battle At Mordor’ will surely raise the hairs on your back!”
“Dominion” recording lineup:
Eric Peterson – vocals, guitars, bass
Lyle Livingston – orchestrated keys, pianos
Alex Bent – drums
Leah – female vocals, choirs
DRAGONLORD‘s sophomore album, “Black Wings of Destiny”, was released in the U.S. in October 2005 via Escapi Music. The follow-up to 2001’s “Rapture” (Spitfire Records) was recorded and mixed by Fredrik Nordström (HAMMERFALL, DIMMU BORGIR, ARCH ENEMY) at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden.
