After our tour in Czech Republic and the German Swordbrothers Festival we closed the month September with a show in our home town Tilburg, where we opened for US power metal legends ATTACKER in club Little Devil. White Room Reviews wrote a live review of this memorable night. Read the full review here.
"De gedegen, op traditionele leest geschoeide, powermetal staat als een huis. Alhoewel de podiumpresentatie naar mijn mening iets te statisch is, wordt dat gelukkig gecompenseerd door het enthousiasme van zanger David Marcelis, die bovendien over een uitstekende strot beschikt."

LIVE REVIEW - SWORDBROTHERS FESTIVAL GERMANY
Some reviews were published covering our show at Swordbrothers Festival XII in Andernach, Germany, on September 14th.
FFM-Rock: "Die Holländer meistern die schwierige Aufgabe das 12. SWORDBROTHERS-Festival in der Halle des JUZ-Andernach zur Mittagsstunde zu eröffnen mit Bravour."
Crossfire: "Die Holländer von Lord Volture durften heute den Anfang machen. Shouter David war zunächst noch etwas steif, aber das ist ja auch kein Wunder, wenn der Wecker erst kurz nach Eins anzeigt. Trotzdem gabs nach den ersten Stücken mehr als Achtungsapplaus."
Streetclip.tv: "Die jungen Niederländer waren ein unspektakulärer, aber durchaus passender Opener."

TOUR UPDATE - DUTCH-DANISH POWER PACT
The venues for our Danish shows early next year are now all confirmed. We'll play three shows together with power metallers SEVEN THORNS in the Sjælland and Hovedstaden regions. Preceding this invasion of the North SEVEN THORNS will travel down to the Netherlands for the 'Dutch-Danish December Disruption', playing shows with LORD VOLTURE in Tilburg, Arnhem and Eindhoven cities.
With such a full touring agenda covering a great many European countries without passing by Belgium one might almost think that we forgot about our southern neighbours. Nothing is further from the truth! Another show has been confirmed for Saturday March 1st 2014. We'll play Metal Eve in the Belgium town of Herentals. The organisation is preparing a killer line-up and more bands will be revealed soon. For more info, visit the official Metal Eve page on Facebook.

STUDIO RECORDINGS FINISHED
We have finished the recordings for our yet untitled, third full-length studio album. The album was recorded at Final Focus Studio Tilburg and Split Second Sound Studio Amsterdam and engineerd by Yuma van Eekelen (Exivious, ex-Pestilence) and Bart Hennephof (Textures). All tracks are now going to Swamp Studio Raamsdonk to be mixed by Stephen van Haestregt (ex-Within Temptation, ex-My Favorite Scar). A release is expected for early 2014.
Frontman David Marcelis about the new album: "We cannot wait to share the new tunes with the world. We're so proud to have made another album which is 100% LORD VOLTURE, yet renewing in its own way. The compositions are more compact and in-your-face than on our previous records, but at the same time there is more rest and maturity and a better flow. Everything sounds loud, tight and confident, even in the unmixed and uncompressed tracks. Each of us has grown a lot since our last release 'Never Cry Wolf' in 2011, drums, bass, guitars, vocals,.. everthing. If you ask me, this will become an instant-classics-only album!"
In less than two weeks LORD VOLTURE embark on the ‘Wolves In Bohemia‘ tour in Czech Republic, Germany and the Netherlands. More tours and shows are coming up in October, November, December and January for the Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Denmark and Northern Ireland. We will play live a number of the new album songs alongside classics from the Beast Of Thunder and Never Cry Wolf albums. An updated overview of all dates, cities and venues can be found here.

STUDIO REPORT - VOCALS
The studio recordings are almost at an end. Previous weekend David recorded another two songs for lead vocals and the whole band joined in the studio to add some massive choirs and shouts in the backings. During the week Paul and Leon were in Final Focus Studio to enrich the songs with their guitar licks, sweeps and shreds. Their twin battles are again phenomenal! Tomorrow and the day after David will head to Tilburg for the last lines of lead vocals. After that, all is on tape and the whole recording project will be transferred to Swamp Studio for mixing and mastering.
