    Well said Tim... I've never understood all the fuss over the lineup changes or name. EVERY great band goes through it, it's what MAKES them great... diversity.

    A funny anecdote though re: the Dungeon name: I remember way back in 2001/2002 maybe that you guys did a support gig with an unremembered band. I didn't go, even upon the recommendation of a mate (Tonci, sup brah!), because at the time I wasn't really a big fan of "fantasy" type metal and seeing "Dungeon" made me think "nah, seems pretty gay".

    Of course, not long after that gig I decided to actually check you out and, suffice to say, I was annoyed that I'd just blown you off like that and hence started the now 10yr love affair with all that is LORDungeon :D

    Now, bring on the new shit boys... and can't wait for April 5th in Sydney \m/ :D

    Of course, LORD probably isn't much better than Dungeon, mind you! HAHA! But it was a convenient choice because we already had an album out that we could tour behind rather than starting entirely fresh. We still get shit for LORD but the misunderstandings are way less annoying than Dungeon was.

    Scary trivia: She was 16 in that pic. Her twin daughters turned 16 just the other day. *shudders and feels old*

    First gig Dungeon did in Brisbane? Dungeon, Astriaal and Tripwire. That was the line up. Tonci, Tanya and I were there. You missed out :)

    Damn, that's OLD Tim :devil:

    Yep, that's the gig I'm thinking of. I should've realised they'd be good, playing with Astriaal and Tripwire (I miss them still). You were just a wee little boy back then :D

    Good read!

    This is exactly what i was thinking when reading it - for every person who thought dungeon was a fantasy band, there will be 2 who think Lord is christian rock!

    But if you think about it, the market for Christian rock is like 800 times bigger than nerd metal. ;)

    Interestingly enough, on Facebook we tend to get tagged with a lot of devout Christians from the Philippines and South America who are including the LORD in their photos. We untag them right away, of course, but you'd sorta think people would check that they have the right entity that talks about "Reborn". Ours is slightly more sinister than the one preached on Sundays. ;)

    But honestly, we get FAR less hassles with the name LORD than we ever did with Dungeon. It was a bit of a step back in Europe because Dungeon was already a bit established but as I said in my blog, if we kept it, we'd spend most of our time explaining that we in fact do NOT have a magical unicorn or stroke Timo Tolki's scrotum before we go on stage. :)

    Well said Tim.... I know I probably speak for most of your fans when I say I appreciate all the work you and the boys do to bring us a quality product... still why I have no problem with paying almost $200 a couple of years ago for a self-released live CD, t-shirt and patch... I'm actually wearing the t-shirt as I type this! :D

    Can't wait 'till release when I'll be buying whatever limited-edition you have! Also, make sure you work that Andyswos as hard as possible ;)

    Cheers,
    \m/att :)
