New Jersey's unique Power Metal Band that
released a vinyl EP in 1987 that only die-hard collector's have known until
last year. But now, after more than a decade, the OVERLORDE is back and ready
to conquer: so saddle your horse of steel, raise your sword and join the army
of supreme Power Metal with OVERLORDE riding at it's head. ALL HAIL, OVERLORDE!!!
TAKE US AWAY!!!
1) Which year
you got infected with the METAL-virus and what was the release?
Well, the first REAL metal album that got me was probably Iron Maiden's "Piece of Mind", then Judas Priest's "British Steel"
2) With what age did you start singing/playing
an instrument and what was the reason to do so?
3) Tell us your five all time-favorite
4) Tell us the three last records/CDs
you bought, that really thrilled you!
5) Please give us a discography of all bands
you played with and all releases and about how many copies each title were sold!
Ok…here goes… OVERLORDE - Self-titled E.P. on Strike Zone Records, and the new OVERLORDE 2000 demo. The only other band that I was with, that actually "released" something was a band called "PERSIA". We released three CD's, and one was released under another name. That band name was "ATELLO". The first CD was self-titled, the second was named "NO COMPROMISE", and the third, was called "THE BIG PAYOFF", again, that one was released under the "ATELLO" name. With regard to the amount of CD's sold? It's hard to say, because they've been selling for years, and I personally do not have an accurate count.
6) Looking back: Which of your releases do
you like the most and why?
That would have to be the Overlorde E.P. and demo; Persia's "No Compromise", and Atello's "The Big Payoff". They just best represent my playing, and sound real cool.
7) And which the least/why?
I like them all…just the above mentioned one's better.
8) Did your band (any of your bands) record
songs that have never been released? Please give us the song-titles and a short
Sure. Persia recorded several songs, that were to be released, but they just never made it to the public.
9) What was the highlight of your career?
That would have to be all the times being on stage opening for some cool national acts. I've opened for bands like Heaven's Edge, Warrant, Kix, Peter Criss and Don Dokken.
10) Tell us a funny story around your
band from the past!
11) Are you a metal-collector?
12) What indescribable great question have
you never been asked yet? And what would your answer have been?
Not sure…I've never been asked such a question yet…so until I am asked, I have no idea what my answer would be!
13) What is the current status of the band
and what is planned next?
Overlorde is doing really well. We'll be playing the Powermad 5 Metal Festival in August, in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, we are currently shopping around for a label deal, and we continue to play and write. The overall objective is "WORLD DOMINATION"!!
Any last words?:
I'd just like to say thanks for showing an interest in the band, and hope that everyone out there will continue to support OVERLORDE!
