Lord Dying

LORD DYING hails from Portland, Oregon, a place overabundant with purveyors of the heavy riff. It’s also a region where the inhabitants are plagued with nerve and joint damage due to lack of sunlight, and a place where the gloomy weather becomes a product of the music itself. LORD DYING plays no small role in contributing to that vibe, as the band’s pained, pessimistic lyrics and bleak, sludgy riffs can attest to. Formed in 2010, the band’s members E. Olson (guitars/vocals), D. Capuano (bass), C. Evans (guitars) and R. Shaffer (drums) are all veterans of the heavy metal scene, having played in bands such as Black Elk, Portals, Dark Castle and Le Force.


Though the band might not focus on speed, LORD DYING’s career certainly got off to a fast start. After releasing a sold out 7” and a self-titled EP, the band quickly signed to Relapse Records and recorded their full-length debut with Sanford Parker (Yob, Rwake, etc). Summon the Faithless, a thrashy record that also placed emphasis on doom and groove, was hailed as one of the most impressive debut records in years, garnering acclaim from MetalSucks, New Noise, and many others. Following the album’s release, LORD DYING 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 itself as a pummeling, must-see live act.


LORD DYING's relentless touring schedule and insatiable hunger for the ultimate riff brought the band back to the studio in late 2014, this time with producer Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust, to record its sophomore full-length Poisoned Altars. Released in January 2015, Poisoned Altars proved that LORD DYING has matured well beyond its years and has grown into a titanic, fully developed metal band. The record was praised by numerous publications, including Metal Hammer, Metal Injection, Revolver and MetalSucks, who called the record “intensely teeth-gnashing, skull-pureeing metal.” Poisoned Altars has seen the band achieve the widespread recognition it deserves, and has established LORD DYING as one of the foremost sludge artists of the day.
