Lightning Lord are a band from New York that plays a mixture of speed, heavy metal and NWOBHM and this is a review of their 2013 ep "All Father Death Stalkers" which was released by Sword And Chains Records.
The ep starts out with with an old school metal sound as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and it leads up to melodic vocals and the music is heavily rooted in the mid 70's and early 80's and after awhile true metal solos are added into the music.
On these 2 songs Lightning Lord go back to a sound that pre dates thrash metal and brings back a lot of true metal elements that have not been attempted by any newer bands and the music sounds like it could of easily been released by neat Records in the early 80's.
Song lyrics cover dark and mythology themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and old school sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion lightning Lord are a very great sounding mixture of speed, heavy metal and NWOBHM and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Children Of The Night". 8/5 out of 10.
