Dead Lord, groupe suédois, a sorti le 21 août, Heads Held High, un album à consonnance très lizzienne.. Je vais donc me PENCHER sur la question.
There will only be one Thin Lizzy, but Phil Lynott and the lads created something so special with that band that now, nearly thirty years after Philo drank himself into oblivion, new bands still strike to recapture that bottled lightning. The young, ballsy Swedes in Dead Lord, whose entire discography sounds like a homage to Lynott's swaggering brilliance, are one of the best of the bunch, as they make clear on their Century Media debut, Heads Held High (which, through coincidence or not, was officially released on August 20, the day after Lynott's birthday).
Hakim Krim hauls out a scarily good Lynott expression on Heads Held High; if you're the kind of person who considers reincarnation a viable afterlife activity, he'd make an excellent poster boy for its benefits. The album is out now on a variety of formats—CD, digital, and of course, a billion different colors of vinyl.
Crack open a bottle of Irish whiskey, throw on the album (or our stream below), and see which one you get through first.
