Dragonlord is the side project of
guitarist Eric Peterson, apparently a project that has been
in the works for some time now.
The lineup here is most of the current Testament lineup with
the addition of Psypheria keyboardist Lyle Livingston.
The resulting album,
is for all intents and purposes a black metal album, as the
vocals, keyboards, and song pace is undeniably black, while
the guitarwork, unsurprisingly, is more thrash-based.
Peterson's vocals are quite good (occasionally
Cradle Of Filth
and overall this is a very good album, surprisingly genuine
(in other words, it doesn't sound like Peterson is just hopping on
the black metal bandwagon), and well worth recommending to black
metal fans, and probably Testament fans as well.
