BIOGRAPHY

‘The majesty of a lordship, the power and velocity of an electrical charge and the beastly ruggedness of a scavenging vulture’

LORD VOLTURE are a Dutch heavy metal outfit in the tradition of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Iced Earth, led by vocalist David Marcelis. After an explosive take-off in 2010 with the release of debut album ‘Beast Of Thunder’ (feat. Jeff Waters of Annihilator) the band rapidly rises to find themselves in the frontier of Dutch Heavy Metal. With their sophomore release ‘Never Cry Wolf’ (feat. Sean Peck of Cage) in 2011 the band set their definitive style while increasingly gaining recognition everywhere they’re heard. The third head-on LORD VOLTURE metal album entitled “Will To Power” was released in 2014 on Mausoleum Records. The album contains 9 killer songs and a guest appearance by former Megadeth guitarist Chris Poland. With all albums well received by reviewers worldwide, LORD VOLTURE have gained significant presence in the global metal community. This massive exposure opens doors to many festivals and support slots and, as a result, LORD VOLTURE have shared the stage with Y&T, Primal Fear, Firewind, Circle II Circle, Sanctuary, Tim Ripper Owens, Blaze Bayley, Vicious Rumors, Tygers Of Pan Tang, Diamond Head and numerous others, while touring through the larger part of Europe, from the UK and Ireland to eastern Europe and from Scandinavia and the Baltics to the Mediterranean. With plans laid out for several follow-up releases, LORD VOLTURE is sharper than ever and ready to unleash more high-pitched power vocals and mind boggling guitar solos onto the world. For all who bear a heart of steel, LORD VOLTURE is a definite MUST!
