This is the first full length album of this new Swedish hard rock act. Dead Lord released a single in 2012 which I reviewed for this website. One of the single’s tunes is present in “Goodbye Repentance” (“Onkalo”). The situation is simple in Dead Lord’s occasion. The sound of the band is similar to that of Thin Lizzy. The fans of Thin Lizzy should really rush out and buy the album!! For the rest of you I should say that the recording is probably made in an analogical way so the sound will remind you of older decades… The vocals of Dead Lord (Krim) reminded me of Phil Lynott while the guitar work on “Goodbye Repentance” is really good!! The anthems that entertained me a lot were “Hanker”, “Hammer to the Heart”, “Envying the Dead” & of course “Onkalo”. All the fans of the 70’s hard rock know what they should do!!!
