When first receiving the Lord Volture promo package I was expecting it to be another typical power metal release with the same up tempo rhythm and shifts that dominates the genre and to be honest makes it more redundant then ever, but enough about what is not and let’s talk about what it is hey? Lord Volture plays heavy metal in a very traditional manner, in fact vocalist David Marceli’s voice is what gels the music together here so well…
The extra time afforded by the closing slot means that we are treated to some tracks not regular on recent setlists, including two extra tracks from the Frankenstein’s Drag Queen days; ‘197666’ and ‘Rambo’ (during which W13 takes aim at members of the audience with his laser-sight automatic gun)
Mike Tramp, Danish born (Michael Trempenau), for those who don’t know has been around for a very long time. Trempenau started his musical career singing in Vesterbro Ungdomsgård, a youth group club in Copenhagen, and appears on their first album: Vi lever på Vesterbro (1974). In 1976, Trempenau, now known professionally as Tramp, joined the pop band ”Mabel” as the lead singer.
