LORD DYING come from Portland, Oregon, a place over abundant with purveyors of the heavy riff. A region where the inhabitants are plagued with nerve and joint damage due to lack of sunlight. In a time where everyone is trying to out-sludge or out-doom each other LORD DYING gives something less than a fuck. They are a metal band with members of Black Elk, Portals, Le Force, and Cremains, who in their short, one year’s time as a band have shared the stage with Unsane, Yob, Valient Thorr, Black Cobra and many others.
After releasing a self-titled EP in 7″ form, the dudes kicked it up a notch, heading out on national tours with Witch Mountain followed by a long trek with label-mates Red Fang and Black Tusk. Fast forward to 2013 and LORD DYING are poised to be the new heavyweight champions of metal. Smashing the riffs of High On Fire into the groove of Kylesa, LORD DYING have delivered one of the most impressive metal debuts in a long, long time. A young band that has matured well beyond their years into a fully developed titanic heavy metal machine, LORD DYING‘s new album is set for a summer release on Relapse Records.
The band commented on completing their debut: “We recently finished work on an offering of pummeling riffs and all things metal and we couldn’t be happier with it. So crack a brew, bang your head, and enjoy.”
