Biography

Formed in early 2010 by Pete Slate and Stephen Spillers, Druid Lord quickly gained the attention of many in the metal scene. Initially, Druid Lord set out to self-release a 4 song EP, but due to interest by labels and fans decided to proceed with a full length cd.

Recently signed to HPGD Productions, Druid Lord are scheduled to release “Hymns for the Wicked” on Oct. 31st of 2010. In addition to joining Druid Lord on bass & vocals recently, long time friend and band member Tony Blakk is handling the engineering of this deadly release. Fans of doom and old-school death metal are already hailing this release as one of the best offerings to surface in ages.

Druid Lord, interestingly enough, is comprised of three of the members of the ‘92-‘99 line-up of another well-regarded death metal act from Florida, Equinox. Pete Slate honed his skills as a member of Incubus, Acheron, Massacre and Kauldron . Tony Blakk gained respect and recognition with bands such as Acheron, Apostasy and Diabolic. Stephen Spillers was a founding member of Equinox and recorded numerous releases with the band including “Return to Mystery”, “Journey into Oblivion” and “As the Moon Swallows the Sun”.

    Do I see people complaining about this sounding similar to previous artists? really? The riffs are crushing, the atmosphere is claustrophobic and the production is murky. Do you need anything more than that to enjoy a death metal album with oldschool sound? That said, awesome album.

    Hoop4Sho, I have to disagree that we rip any band off. If you would take the time to look into Druid Lord you would learn that each of our band members have been playing metal of one form or another since the 80's. The reason some listeners may find our music similar to some things they have heard is that we share like influences which reach farther back than the bands of today. Some of which include Winter, My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, Candlemass, Dream Death- all doom bands of years past. You will also likely hear influences from Celtic Frost, Bathory, Venom, Mercyful Fate in addition to Death, Obituary, Entombed, etc. Most notably you will hear influences from Acheron and Equinox being that we were each members of one or the other. There's a difference between being influenced by and ripping off another band(s). If you don't like our music we have no problem with that- everyone has their own tastes and interests.

    it's not that druid lord is ripping off acid witch, it's that acid witch and druid lord are ripping off the same bands as each other....
