Hey guys, As has been the norm around here for a while, it’s been a while between blogs so I thought it was time to fill you all in on what’s been happening and what we have coming up. We’re on the cusp of redoing the website, especially to make it more mobile-friendly, and we’re more »

A Personal Journey: Revisited

Hands up: who has the first LORD album, A Personal Journey? Yeah, I see you both standing there! Hi! HAHA! To say that APJ was kind of lost in the background noise and eventually ended up as “that weird early LORD album I discovered when I looked through their back catalogue” is pretty accurate. That’s more »

Journeys Old and New, and New Friends

Hey guys – long time, no blog! There’s a good reason for that, I’ve been in lockdown mode in the studio working on something really cool. I won’t say too much about that other than we’ll announce it very soon, and if you’re good at picking up on clues, there’s a few Easter eggs dotted more »

I thought I’d chuck a quick post here to test out the old WordPress app from my iPhone. Why am I making this public? Well I thought I’d plant some seeds regarding some traveling I’ll be doing very shortly.   This time next week I’ll be getting ready to jet off to the U.S. for more »

Well, here we are yet again: the end of another year draws close. And wow, what a journey it’s been! Like many people are doing today, I’m thinking back to everything that’s happened over the last twelve months and I’m finding it hard to both remember everything that’s happened and put it all into words. more »

Pop Bands and Lifelong Dreams

One of my all-time favourite bands, believe it or not, is Duran Duran. I’ve upset more than a few people with that revelation! I remember sitting at a train station with my guitar and gear bag, having just arrived back in the country from our last Japanese tour, waiting for my train home when a more »

Hey all, Just a quick one this time to say hi (it’s been a while – hi!) and to show off a couple of great reviews we’ve been collecting lately. 🙂 We’ve been doing this a long time now, and over the years we’ve had some absolutely killer reviews for some albums. I still remember more »

A Personal Thanks

Hey all, This is a bit of a different blog in that I’m not talking about any album updates, or addressing any questions or anything like I’ve done previously. So I’m sitting here, not long out from the release of Digital Lies and looking at all of the pre-orders that came in on our recent more »

10 random metal classics that you should be listening to.

January 1, 2013 by

These days, music is ridiculously disposable. The younger generation appear (and even some of us get caught at times) to dismiss/remove a song after about 30 seconds of it starting. Everyone either downloads illegally, or at least can purchase music and delete it with the push of a button. We’ve all turned into sinister record company more »

Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013!

December 31, 2012 by  
Filed under blogs

And so it ends! Yep, it’s one of “those” posts. If you’ve even glanced at any forums or social networking sites in the last week, you’ve no doubt seen people summing up their year, giving their top events / albums / films, etc. or just saying “thank f*ck it’s over”. It was quite a big more »

Recording Update 5

Hey all, Long time, no update! Sorry about that, I’ve been pretty flat-out busy with a few things which, of course, includes working on the album. So! What’s new then? Well, since the last post, all of the guitars were finally done. The rhythm guitars, oddly enough, were the worst of it for me this more »

The illusion of freedom (or The Story of Billy’s Gourmet Pie Shop)

Hey all, While I’m waiting for some files to render and some DSLR batteries to charge, I thought I’d chat a little bit about some misconceptions that people might have about what it’s like being in a band like LORD. This has been kicking around in my head for some time now, and I’m usually more »

Postcard from the air

Well, here I am flying high above Europe watching the sun just start to break over the horizon. We just had a verrrry long flight from Sydney to Abu Dhabi (which, even from just the airport, looked really cool!). Current time is about 5am and we’re about 2 hours out of Prague. I’m watching the more »

Hey guys, Just another quick update to let you know where we’re at. So, all of the rhythm guitars are finally done! Hooray! Man, that sucked. Sounding great but wow, what an ordeal! I’d like to think Mark had a better time doing his tracks than I did. Speaking of Mark’s guitars, he gave me more »

Hey all, Just another quick recording update from the studio, and as I mentioned in the last two updates, there will be proper video diaries coming soon. We figure it makes more sense to do the actual album first before we get to the “making of” videos. 😉 So… rhythm guitars, hey? Anyone who has more »

And the drums are done. Well, recorded anyway… now it’s up to me to finish the editing so we can start on guitars. Rather than a long blog, here’s a couple of videos from this week to show you what we’ve been up to. Enjoy! 🙂

Thoughts on recording for the new LORD album

So I’m in my home studio checking over all my equipment, making sure everything that needs to work still does and re-stringing guitars in preparation for guitar tracking on LORD’s upcoming release. I’ve recently had to purchase a new computer to get my Pro Tools back online as well as a new studio monitor. The more »
