The new HOUSE OF LORDS CD, “NEW WORLD NEW EYES“ is complete. It marks the 8th release on Frontiers Records since Bj and I joined the band in 2005. The art work for the CD Cover is absolutely incredible. I’ll keep you posted on all upcoming news.

Love HOL and JC, but his weakened voice and new singing style is a total put off for me...I've struggled with the last 2-3 releases for that reason.

Me too. Not a good sign.

Their debut, Demons Down and World Upside Down are some of my all time faves.  The last couple albums were a bit of a step down for me.  And I'd agree James' vocals aren't what we've come to expect, but if the songs are there I'm still on board

Sahara is what got me into the band in the first place.  Walked into a Musicland at the mall and they were playing Sahara.  Asked the girl behind the counter who/what it was.  She gets all excited, telling me how the drummer (I think) was her boyfriend or ex-boyfriend or brother or something.  Bought the disc and been a fan ever since.

I loved the debut but was left a bit miffed at the direction on Sahara. Took me awhile to appreciate Sahara but it's one of my favorites now.

From Frontiers:

House of Lords will release their new album, "New World - New Eyes" on May 8, 2020! 

“New World - New Eyes” is House Of Lords’ 10th studio album, following the well received release “Saint of the Lost Souls”. Recorded and produced by the band’s singer and mastermind, James Christian, this collection of songs has an incredible flow of up-tempo and mid-tempo rockers mixed with power ballads, which lean a bit more toward keyboards this time around, but without compromising the band's trademark sound, which is based around Jimi Bell’s guitar work.

“New World - New Eyes” is already one of the year’s most anticipated melodic rock releases and will not disappoint fans of the band or genre. James Christian's well crafted and smooth vocals bring the band's craft to new heights. Guitarist Jimi Bell is on fire and the melodic riffs throughout the album will leave you breathless. Chris Tristram on bass is more solid than ever and BJ Zampa brings a solid and powerful rhythm foundation to House of Lords.

This time, the band has cooperated with none other than Mark Spiro (Giant, Bad English, Cheap Trick, etc.) on the songwriting of most of the songs. More collaboration came via Tommy Denander, Chris Pelcer, and Richard Hymas.

House of Lords debuted in 1989 with the release of their self-titled album, a record which is still regarded as one of the best arena rock releases of the '80s. The colossal sound, the soaring vocals of James Christian, and instrumental capabilities of the band (which featured ex-Angel and Giuffria keyboardist, Gregg Giuffria, along with luminaries Lanny Cordola, Chuck Wright, and Ken Mary), were reminiscent of such frontrunners as Whitesnake, Deep Purple, and Van Halen and immediately brought the band to the attention of the mainstream music media and the masses of ‘80s hard rock fans.

With their sophomore release, “Sahara”, House of Lords had considerable radio and video chart success with their cover of Blind Faith’s “Can't Find My Way Home”. After a tour with Nelson in 1991, the group disbanded, eventually coming back together with a new lineup (featuring original members Giuffria and Christian) in 1992 with "Demon's Down". With the change in musical climate at the time, House of Lords went into hibernation until the original lineup came back together in 2000, releasing the controversial “Power and the Myth”, an album which featured a sound leaning more towards progressive hard rock with ‘70s rock influences. After a short European tour, singer James Christian decided to go back to the trademark arena rock sound of House Of Lords, putting together a new line-up with the blessing of founding member Gregg Giuffria, who opted out right before the release of “Power and the Myth”. New members Jimi Bell on guitars and B.J. Zampa on drums supplied a true powerhouse sound to the fifth studio album, “World Upside Down”, a record which caused a real stir in the hard rock and melodic rock scenes. That album was followed up by the equally impressive “Come to My Kingdom” in 2008, "Cartesian Dreams" in 2009, "Big Money" in 2011, “Precious Metal” in 2014, and “Saint of the Lost Souls” in 2017.

The band has toured relentlessly in Europe and the States in support of their releases and have now become a true staple of the hard rock scene on both continents. House Of Lords is known for superb hooks, majestic atmospheres, monumental guitar riffs, and a production to die for. All these ingredients you will find in abundance on “New World - New Eyes”!

Tracklist:
1. New World New Eyes
2. Change (What's It Gonna Take)
3. One More
4. Perfectly (You And I)
5. The Both Of Us
6. Chemical Rush
7. We're All That We Got
8. Better Off Broken
9. $5 Buck Of Gasoline
10. The Chase
11. The Summit

Not bad but just sounds like a continuation of the last few releases from these guys...missing that classic HOL sound for me unfortunately.

Yup. Sounds just like the last few releases complete with James Christian's weak vocals. Sad how far these guys have fallen.

Something about the production seems off.

That being said, I'm higher on this band than most of you seem to be, and I like the song (although the bridge is a little weak). Still eagerly awaiting the album.

IIRC the first couple singles from their last album weren't among the strongest, either.

after giving the new track a listen I see why the comments are on the critical side, song is just OK for me, and the production sounds well below their usual standards

That's a better track.not amazing but better...but still sounds empty if you know what I mean...just sounds like this track should be more solid in sound with a big thumping beat(maybe its just my speakers?)...sadly it doesn't...for me anyway...have a soft spot for HOL so ill most likely still buy it though.

Agreed. The arrangement is great but the production is missing something. Weak snare drum maybe?

Yeah, that song is missing its balls. Feels like it should have a big, thumping sound and just doesn't.

    • Debut is great! Hopefully the singer is good.
    • I agree the US is weathering the storm but you don't have much choice since many states have virus numbers that are surging due to social gatherings ... you've got to admit that if things had been handled better and there was leadership from the top instead of denial , the country would be much better off.... As for destroying statues...that shit pisses me off...there is no advantage in trying to erase history and the rioting and other destruction is outrageous and should have been dealt with harshly especially that bullshit in Seattle where people were allowed to take over several city blocks....and I would be willing to bet a small fortune that the people who vandalized the Frederick Douglass statue were of a 'pale persuasion' ...the only surprise is that it took them this long to do it...probably because they had a hard time finding a statue of a black man...  
    • Lady Lou - Accept
    • Looking forward to this one - really enjoyed the debut 
    • Get the fuck outta here - You made it happen! We are truly humbled that you made us reach the goal in just 52 hours, amazing!! Now we can start production!!!📀💿 Thank you so much!   Looks like it’s all go
    • From FB: GUEST STAR ANNOUNCEMENT We are thrilled to announce Rob Wylde of Midnite City will be contributing vocals on not one, but two tracks on Volume Two! One of the tracks, a first for the DPP, is a cover of an unreleased Paul Stanley track! Welcome to the DPP family Rob!  
    • Kamikaze Kings - The Law  Ragdoll  - Back To Zero  Cherry Grind - A Room With A View
    • Stirring the pot, eh? Candidly, despite Trump being somewhat non-existent on the leadership front when it comes to COVID-19, the country is actually weathering the storm. Yes, there are spikes in cases due to, *ahem* "social gatherings", but the scenario for these cases is vastly different from the onset. We are testing at a much greater rate now, the majority of cases appear to be asymptomatic, and death rates continue to decline. Businesses are (slowly) reopening, and people are getting to work. This was never going to be a "flip the switch and everything is back to normal" situation. It's going to take time. The bigger concern to me are the Antifa and BLM terrorists destroying the country and its history, while local and regional authorities stand by and let them do it. It's criminal... on both the part of the thugs, and the bureaucrats. When peaceful protest turned into destruction of public and private property, and danger to innocent civilians, that shit should have been nipped in the bud, but authorities were too concerned about how they would be perceived on Twitter, and now everyone's trying to figure out how to get shit back into the horse. Not to mention that these people are fucking stupid. Over the weekend they tore down the statue of Frederick Douglass... a black abolitionist who worked to end slavery. It just boggles the mind.
