LORD VOLTURE CONFIRMED FOR LES-FEST WILDFIRE
We are very proud to announce that LORD VOLTURE have been confirmed for the LES-FEST WILDFIRE festival in Scotland in June 2015. From the festival organisation's official press release:
“The first headliner for 2015 needs very little introduction from us, suffice to say we are delighted to have enticed genuine heavy metal legends Tygers of Pan Tang to Wildfire 2015. Oh, you want another iconic name? Well the ultimate family friendly good-time festival needs a proper party band, a band that has played just about every other UK festival but couldn't resist the draw of Wildfire's lakeside setting; oh crikey it's only Lawnmower Deth. Next up, a band cited as an influence by no less than James Hetfield. Scottish heavy metal legends Holocaust will be making an exclusive appearance... when they're on the Wildfire office will be closed and you'll find us all down the front. Adding Wildfire's first splash of international colour, the hotly tipped Lord Volture are making the trip across from The Netherlands to grace our main stage, Anyone who caught their recent set at SOS festival knows this is one not to be missed. Topping off our first announcement, we're delighted to announce that we'll be joined by a dazzling array of talent that includes Tysondog, The Mercy House, Line of Fire, Ronin, Press to Meco, Kaine and Silverjet And mainly because guitarist KC threatened to cry if we didn't, we've even found a spot for Leeds' finest rock'n'roll miscreants The Idol Dead.”
Another live review on SOS Festival, by Michael Dodd of Get Your Rock Out this time:
"The surprise package of the weekend definitely had to be Dutch metallers Lord Volture. With a NWOBHM vibe, galloping rhythm and soaring vocals from super charismatic singer David Marcelis this epic quintet produced one of the atmospheric highlights of the day, which given the calibre of bands who were to follow is no small feat. This was a performance of high octane awesomeness and everybody was involved. The acoustics of the hall meant that when the crowd sang along it reverberated in such a way that it sounded like there was a battalion of metalheads in chorus. The band’s interaction with the audience as they laid down their sweet sound was exceptional, getting everybody to clap along and bang their heads. The set closed with a number called ‘Light Them Up’ and that’s just what this highly impressive act did. On a day where the main stage would see some of Britain’s most epic bands, these Dutch masters proved a genuine highlight." Read more.

SOS FESTIVAL REVIEWED - DEVILS GATE MEDIA
A new live review by Rob Nankivell of Devils Gate Media about LORD VOLTURE's set at SOS Festival Manchester previous weekend:
"Dutch maestros of metal, LORD VOLTURE, took us back to the traditional. I was instantly 'back in the womb', hearing echoes of Maiden, Priest, Dio and Saxon at every turn. Vocalist, David Marcelis did a fantastic job of working the crowd, which he was duly rewarded with by a sea of horns and hair! I, too, found myself nodding and foot-tapping, with a wry smile on my face." Read the full review here.
