Warlord is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1980 and based in Los Angeles, CA. This ‘Warlord’ should not to be confused with the ’70s English punk rock group Warlord UK, the ’90s death metal group Warlord UK, or any later groups by the same name.The band recently announced that the new album will be engineered and mastered by the multi-Grammy award winner Phil Magnotti (FATES WARNING, OVERKILL, ARCH/MATHEOS, O.S.I.).Says Warlord: "Warlord is returning to Phil after his excellent work on the Rising Out Of The Ashes album, as well as several Fates Warning projects. Rest assured that the new Warlord album will be of the highest quality production."
Yeah, Kingdom Come were a bit too enamored with Led Zeppelin on their first album, and their career didn't last much longer after that, but at the very least they were one of the very examples of what was storming the rock charts back in 1987-1988. Zep-styled riffs and that sorta watered-down boogie-guitar swagger were everywhere, and Kingdom Come were just one of the many bands getting loads and loads of criticism from purists. Oddly, though, the kids (for a short time) loved it, and the records sold enough to convince those at Polydor to release this collection of some of their more well-known tunes…
Kingdom Come is the debut studio album by American rock band Sir Lord Baltimore, released on Mercury Records in 1970. This album is notable for the fact that its 1971 review in Creem contains an early documented use of the term "heavy metal" to refer to a style of music. It features very fast-paced, rhythm and blues-based rock 'n' roll with high levels of distortion in the guitar and, in some cases, the bass. Baltimore's heavy style can be compared to early Black Sabbath, the Stooges and MC5. Kingdom Come has received acclaim from critics and its influence on heavy metal music is well-noted. In his retrospective review, Marcos Hassan of Tiny Mix Tapes called it "one of those great records where not a second is wasted".
