NEW PROMO SHOTS & PODCAST #6
We are proud to reveal the new LORD VOLTURE promo shots we took in September 2013 at the very special location of Westerbork in the northern parts of the Netherlands. It is a place with lots of history. During World War II the area served as a deportation camp. Nowadays the camp doesn't exist anymore, but a museum and a monument in memory of the people who suffered and died in the Westerbork transit camp remain. Part of the terrain has been in use for astronomical observation since 1969 and harbours the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope. The impressive site consists of fourteen antennas, each 25 metres in diameter, arranged on a 2.7 km East-West line.
The photography was once again done by the talented hand of Bas Wijers, who was also responsible for our previous photoshoots, the cover artwork for the 'Beast Of Thunder' and 'Never Cry Wolf' albums, and the 'Minutes To Madness' video clip. View all the new pictures in our gallery.
As icing on the cake Frank made a short podcast with footage of the day of the photoshoot. Enjoy!

HAPPY NEW YEAR
Today, the fourth calender year of LORD VOLTURE's existence comes to an end. Each year we keep developing as a band and we keep exploring new territories and expanding our fanbase over the world. With a busy and succesful year behind us we look forward to the adventures to come in the new year. Let us review the events of the past year.
In the first year of 2013, we focussed on finalising and rehearsing the song material for the new studio album. Still, we managed to pull-off some wonderful shows in between the intensive rehearsal schedule, including a show at the 2000 Tons Of Metal cruise boat in Belgium, the Queen's Day Festival in Zaandam, an opening show for STEELWING in Harderwijk and other shows in Eindhoven, Tilburg and Breda cities.
In the Summer months July and August we recorded all tracks for the new album, starting with the drums in Split Second Sound studios in Amsterdam and followed by the bass, the guitars and the vocals in Final Focus Studio, Tilburg.
Straight after coming out of the recording studio we commenced our 'Korgon Over Europe' campaign, bringing the sound of thunder to virgin areas during the Autumn months. We kicked-off in September with the 'Wolves In Bohemia' headliner tour in Czech Republic on which we brought Rotterdam power metallers CONORACH as special guests. We played the German Swordbrothers Festival and Old School Metalfest in Holland alongside names such as MORGANA LEFAY, BLITZKRIEG and WIZARD, and we had the honour of opening for US metal legends ATTACKER in Little Devil Tilburg.
The month October started with an opening show for ENFORCER together with ATTIC in Groene Engel, Oss. Then followed the 'Towards The Taiga' tour, which brought us to Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Slovakia, with highlights playing the Baltic capitals of Tallinn and Riga. On this tour we brought London hardrockers HAMMERJACK with whom we had a terrific time and who we now consider our good friends. Coming back from this 12-day ride through northeastern Europe we played another headline show in Artishock Soest which was a perfect welcoming home party for us.
In November, we revisited Blue Devils Bar Arras in France for a headline show and we reunited with old friends SANDSTONE for the 'Metal Overseas Tour' during which we played a total of six co-headliner shows in the Netherlands and Northern Ireland. It was a wonderful trip and Northern Ireland will definately see us again.
In the start of December we did a 3-day mini-tour in the Netherlands called 'Dutch-Danish December Disruption' on which we were supposed to be co-headlining with SEVEN THORNS from Denmark. Alas, SEVEN THORNS was forced to cancel the tour at the very last moment and so it became a headliner tour after all. Nonetheless, crowds showed up in great numbers and we had brilliant final tour of the year. Highlight was sharing the stage with NICK HELLFORT from Germany on the third and final show of the tour. The remaining weeks of December we spent resting and finalising the mix and master for the new album with Stephen van Haestregt in Swamp Studio Raamsdonk.
For 2014 we have many exciting plans. Most importantly, the third LORD VOLTURE album will be out somewhere between March and May. Upcoming Saturday we'll release our new promo photos and a new podcast. In January, we'll embark on the 'Lost In The Black Forest' German tour with NICK HELLFORT and later in the month on the 'Dutch-Danish Power Pact' in Denmark with SEVEN THORNS. Later in the year we have shows already confirmed in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Czech Republic, including support shows for MASTERPLAN and BLAZE BAYLEY and an appearance at Very 'Eavy Festival. There is much more to come and we are working already on tours for new countries. Metalheads of the world, 2014 will be the year of LORD VOLTURE!!
