House of Lords - Cartesian Dreams

It seems like these guys just released a cd not that long ago.

If it's as good as the last two then I will be buying it. :tumbsup:

 

 

 

Frontiers Records will release of the brand new HOUSE OF LORDS album, entitled "Cartesian Dreams", on September 18 in Europe and October 13 in the USA.

 

Following the 2008 release of "Come to My Kingdom", a record hailed by critics and fans as one of the highlights of the season, HOUSE OF LORDS carved another masterpiece that sets in stone the legacy of one of the most productive and impressive bands of the scene.

 

"This new CD was truly a labor of love," says singer James Christian. "I was so fortunate to be able to work once again with my writing partner and friend Mark Baker. The last time Mark and I worked together was to write and record 'Demons Down'. We have a great chemistry when it comes to writing songs. Jimi Bell once again gave us smoking tracks and Tommy Denander also put his contribution on a few great tracks."

 

The songs written for the new CD offer many different flavors. "The band, as usual, always strives to stay true to its sound but this time around we expanded our horizons a bit without compromising the trademark sound that so many people expect from us," says James. "We don't want to keep making the same record over and over, so this time around you will hear a few things you did not hear on the previous CDs."

 

"Cartesian Dreams" is a natural progression for a band that has such a long history and is just what you would expect and even more: superb hooks, majestic atmospheres that bring back the memories of the debut album, monumental guitar riffs and a production to die for. "The one common thread with the band is that we are always on the same page in terms of what want our records to sound like," explains James.

 

"Cartesian Dreams" track listing:

 

01. Cartesian Dreams

02. Born To Be Your Baby

03. Desert Rain

04. Sweet September

05. Bangin'

06. A Simple Plan

07. Never Never Look Back

08. The Bigger They Come

09. Repo Man

10. Saved By Rock

11. Joanna

12. The Train (bonus track)

Nice. Wasn't expecting this, so this is brilliant news. I've loved their last 2 CDs.

A band that just seem to keep getting better. I agree with the both of you. Very surprised this has come so quickly after the last few brilliant releases. I'm stoked!

The last album I bought was Demons Down....how does the newer stuff compare to the earlier albums?

The last 2 albums have been quite similar. If you ask me they're a little similar in style to the 'Demons Down' disc. Good solid melodic rock. I can't see anyone liking 'Demons Down' but not the last two. As long as you avoid 'The power and the myth' you can't go wrong with any HOL, imo.

Cool. Is a definite pick-up for me, even though both last albums were a little samey. Still one of the legends of MHR....

I disagree a little with your statement. While the last two albums are great IMO they don't really sound much like Demons Down. They have much more of an AOR style to them where Demons Down had some heavier things going on on songs like the title track and "O Father". Either way I think Nick would love the last two discs but I don't think they have all that much in common with Demons Down but I do hear much of the debut on them.

I love all of their albums except 'Myth', and although the last two discs were excellent, I really do hope that there is something a little more fresh in the mix this time around, as 3 discs that sound exactly the same is a little overkill imo. I don't mean completely change their sound and go the way 'Myth' did (fuck they got slated enough for doing that) but a little like the subtle differences they did between 'Sahara' and the fabulous 'Demons Down' album in songwriting and production. Look forward to hearing it.

Sorry to spoil the party but Im not. Ive completely lost interest in the forced HOL sound....most of the songs are medium paced with Christian straining to reach the notes. Same riffs on nearly every song.

 

Ive just listened to the 3 samples over at Mel rock and have to say I have zero interest in this album.

Yep those soundbytes are pretty average. The last album had little longevity for me, and as much as I still enjoyed the last couple of discs there is so much good music for me to buy I might have to hear more of this before deciding whether to pick up...

The reason "Bangin" was referenced was, in all likelihood, because it is a monster fucking tune. AM just giving the CD its first listen. So far I'm quite impressed.

 

-Dan

 

Just listened to the clips which have been posted - I have to say that this sounds a lot more interesting than Come To My Kingdom.

 

Quite impressed with most tracks - I may well pick this up.
