 The most METAL of quests awaits you, as the Lords of the Trident prepare to release our SEVENTH album, Shadows from the Past!

Since the dawn of time, your LORDS have toiled endlessly to bring you the purest METAL available for human consumption. Our last album Frostburn was a monumental success due to the support of kickstarter backers like yourself, but now it's time to step up our game.

Shadows from the Past is bigger, more complex, more mature, and way more METAL than any album we've ever recorded. Not only does it feature the amazing technical musicianship of the LORDS, but also features:

  • Guest Vocals by Brittney Slayes of Unleash the Archers!
  • Guest Vocals by Psychostick
  • A full symphony orchestra
  • A full symphonic choir
  • A live string quartet
  • Strange and wondrous instruments like the Kemeche, Turkish Oud, Riq, and Balalaika 
  • A FREAKING CANNON  
  • ...and more!

We've also brought back an amazing team to help us mix, master, and produce artwork for the album:

  • Doug Olson (Nirvana, Cheap Trick, Smashing Pumpkins) is back as our lead producer and mixing agent! Doug also mixed Plan of Attack and Frostburn.
  • Dan Harjung (Queensrÿche, Robert Plant, Survivor) is back to master the album, and 
  • Andreas Zafeiratos is once again producing the most EPIC artwork!

And, as always, there are a TON of amazing prizes for supporting your LORDS on this Kickstarter:

(note: most artwork/designs on the graphics are in-progress and not finalized)

 The next tier of prizes are aimed at our loyal Patreon backers:

    ASIAN METAL'S ORIGINAL GUITAR NECK

    This is the level for the ULTIMATE collector of Lords' memorabilia. You will receive the ORIGINAL neck from Asian Metal's famed purple strat. The neck he learned guitar on! The neck he wrote all the albums on! The neck that was used for all our recordings!

    His neck was tragically damaged in a gig-related accident a few years ago and has a large crack in the headstock, making it unplayable. Will it still imbue the owner with otherworldly guitar powers? Almost certainly.

    Comes with a certificate of authenticity, signed by all the band members, and also comes with the EXECUTIVE PRODUCER package (meaning you'll get the album early - Mid-June)!
