There’s no other way around it: Listening to Surrender, the new album from Swedish hard rock/glam band Dead Lord, you can sense the abundant Thin Lizzy and Phil Lynott energy pulsating under the surface.

“Distance Over Time” begins the album, and well — just watch/listen to this:

Surrender is the fourth studio album from Dead Lord, released Sept. 4 via Century Media Records, and it packs quite a punch, to say the least. The throwback vibes of this band are on full display from start to finish, a barrage of guitar solos and rambunctious, high-energy anthems from the group (Adam Lindmark on drums, Martin Nordin on guitar, Ryan Kemp on bass and Hakim Krim on guitar and vocals.

Here’s another single, “Letter from St. Allen St.”:

Dead Lord is very much a band that needs to be heard loud. In non-pandemic circumstances, the group would no doubt be traveling around the world, bringing its raucous rock and roll to the masses — but, like everybody else, they must wait to unleash that live power, relegating the rest of us to listen via digital streaming platforms or otherwise.

•NEW ALBUM ”SURRENDER” OUT SEPTEMBER 4TH!• We’re really proud to announce the release date of our 4th studio album, titled Surrender! It is, in our very humble opinion, our best album to date, and we’re stoked to have it hit you like a sock-dispersing face-melter in your auditory sensory system! Pre-order available now! • “Dead Lord’s fourth record “Surrender” is a one-stop shop of everything from sweet licks and stylish solos, to simply remarkable catchy songs that hit you in the feels and fill the gas tank to the brim. Stellar guitar rock, fresh and unleashed, as Dead Lord reinvigorates and rewires a long-lost style, rocketing it into a new era with stone-cold future studio classics. Surrender conveys the sense, palpable at the shows, of the magnetic chemistry and rolling thunder the Dead Lord live extravaganza always floors you with. You can hear the fun and fever, feel the crackle and burn of the reels as they capture a rare rock and roll lightning strike, as if you were standing in the wings with the drug-dealers and crazed leather rebels of days gone by. Humbucking their way into the mixing desk of Robert Pehrsson’s Studio Humbucker in Stockholm, Dead Lord couldn’t have found a more fitting sparring partner for their live burst of untamed rawk. Pehrsson has helped hone Dead Lord’s classy riffs and king kong energy into a diamond-cut crystal of top-drawer rhythm and blues.” Track List “Surrender”: Distance Over Time Letter From Allen St. Authority Evil Always Wins Messin’ Up Dark End Of The Rainbow Bridges The Loner’s Way Gonna Get Me Dystopia Bonus Tracks (*): Hands Down (Moon Martin Cover) Moonchild (Rory Gallagher Cover) I staden som aldrig slumrar till (Letter From Allen St. with Swedish lyrics) *only available on the Ltd.

Thankfully for the rest of us, the band has offered up some music videos to accompany the songs — including the ones above, as well as this one, for “Evil Always Wins,” which depicts a man enjoying a platter of hot dogs in the middle of the woods while listening to the song … and absolutely NOTHING else.

So simple, yet so profound.

As said earlier, this is a band to experience live — so make an effort to do so, once that is able to happen again. And, in the meantime, listen to Surrender, preferably loudly.
