Formed in 2010, Lord Dying come from Portland, Oregon, a place over abundant with purveyors of the heavy riff. A region where the inhabitants are plagued with nerve and joint damage due to lack of sunlight. A place where the gloomy weather becomes a product of the music itself. Members Olson, Capuano, and Evans are veterans of the heavy metal scene, having played in bands such as Black Elk, Portals, and Le Force. With a heavy thrashing emphasis on doom and groove, Lord Dying delivered one of the most impressive metal debuts in a long time with Summon the Faithless in 2013.
After releasing a sold out 7” and a self-titled tour EP, Lord Dying quickly signed to Relapse Records and recorded their full-length debut with Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Yob, Rwake). The band then immediately hit the road and toured throughout North American and Europe, sharing the stage with the likes of Down, Unsane, Red Fang, Yob, Valient Thorr, Floor, Ghost, Corrosion of Conformity, and Black Tusk. Along with appearances at renowned festivals like Roadburn, Phil Anselmo's Housecore Horror Fest, Scion Rock Fest, Project Pabst and Stumpfest, the group quickly established themselves as a pummeling must-see live act.
Lord Dying's relentless touring schedule and insatiable hunger for the ultimate riff brought them back to the studio in late 2014, this time with producer Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust, to record their sophomore full-length. Entitled Poisoned Altars and set for release this January via Relapse, Lord Dying have matured well beyond their years into a fully developed, titanic heavy metal band. Look for them in a town near you all year long!
