    Hi everyone,

    We're pleased to announce that Mark Furtner has joined LORD as our full-time guitarist. :)

    LORD's original guitarist Mav Stevens left the band in December 2006 to relocate to the UK, being replaced live temporarily by our good friend Shane Linfoot of Transcending Mortality and then by Mark from FROMBEYOND for the remainder of the year.

    The chemistry on stage and off between Mark and the rest of the band was so good, we asked him to be a part of it permanently. Mark will now contribute writing and playing to the next LORD album, and of course continue to scare the hell out of audiences with his terrifying shredding live in 2008 and beyond. Anyone who has heard his guest solos on our "Ascendence" album will know what we mean by that!

    This is a good way to round off the year for us, and we expect 2008 to be a pretty big year - there's a lot of really massive things in the works behind the scenes that we can't wait to tell you about when we're able to do so.

    So if we don't see you before then, have a great holiday season and stay safe and let's all welcome Mark as the new guitarist from LORD. :)

    Andy just passed his 11 year mark with the band. That's a pretty good run!

    For a band that had a reputation for having a "revolving door of musicians" due to a couple of stupid changes in 2004 or thereabouts, we do OK.

    I've been here for just about 27 years, next is Andy at 11, then Dale who comes in just behind Andy at 11, then Mark, then Stevo who was here for about 8, and then I'd have to do a bit of fact checking but it'd be a toss-up between TY and Dakk who comes next, then a toss up between Stu and Damo after that, at around 4 years for those guys.

    If you think about how long you'd stay at a job, especially one where you weren't getting paid very well or at all, anything more than 4 years is a pretty fair effort!
