ALBUM REVIEWS / WILL TO POWER

"For sure the best classic metal record of 2014 so far, no doubt 'bout that!" (8.7/10) - Heavy Paradise

"Lords of Volture have created an album that draws from the best elements of traditional metal but explodes with their own brand of power. Will to Power is a must-own album for all that love old Maiden and Priest, but also crave a unique new delivery of that classic sound." (8.5/10) - We Löve Metal

“Will To Power strengthens LORD VOLTURE’S repertoire, with a solid release. This is a band with potential that is clearly putting the work in both live and in the studio, and this album definitely proves that." (9/10) - Metal Temple

"Fans of traditional metal should, beg, borrow or steal to get their hands on 'Will To Power', the third album by Dutch band Lord Volture. Great songs, soaring vocals, galloping rhythms and guitar solos round every corner are to be found throughout the nine songs." - Fireworks

"I cannot say enough about this album to really do it the justice it deserves but to say get out there if you love rock driven metal and buy this album!!!" (8/10) - Reviews By Jon

"A job well done and an ideal album for the real heavy metal fan that is also into Cage, Primal Fear, Hammerfall, Wolf and of course the old school names I already mentioned." (79/100) - Power Of Metal.dk

"Anyone with a heart of steel will find “Will To Power” contains the indispensable ingredients of a truly outstanding hard rocking heavy metal album.” - Hit-Track Top 100

"When Metal-heads wear the emblems of the their favourite bands on the denim jackets, Lord Volture go one step further and wear them on their hearts, and in their music, and long may it continue." - The Mayfair Mall Zine

LIVE REVIEWS

"Another of those must see bands and, short of putting a tank on the stage and blowing the audience up with it, it was going to be hard act to follow." - Steve Ellis

"Lead vocalist David Marcelis’ natural charm had the crowd in the palm of his hand from the off with his stage mannerisms and high pitched vocals. If the beer glasses had been glass and not plastic, he could probably have shattered them." - Planetmosh

"The future of real Heavy Metal is safe in these guys' hands and if they’re not headlining festivals like Wildfire (and bigger) soon we’ll be very, very surprised." (10/10) - Worship Metal

"Lead by hyperactive front man David Marcelis, their seven song set was a master class of melodic power metal." - Planetmosh

"With a NWOBHM vibe, galloping rhythm and soaring vocals from super charismatic singer David Marcelis this epic quintet produced one of the atmospheric highlights of the day." - Get Your Rock Out

"If this is the quality of Metal coming out of the Netherlands then long may it continue. If you like your metal old school, no frills, riff laden and thunderous, Lord Volture are the band for you." - The Mayfair Mall Zine

"Lord Volture has become a seasoned metal act who had little difficulty in Barneveld to win over the public." - Utrecht Roxx
