New Album, Dominion, Out September 21

Renowned TESTAMENT guitarist Eric Peterson recently announced the release of his new DRAGONLORD album, entitled Dominion, out September 21, 2018 via Spinefarm Records. The symphonic black/death metal album serves as the follow-up to 2005's Black Wings of Destiny, but takes the fantasy and storytelling to a whole new level. Dominion explores themes of darkness owning and influencing these times we now live in, and things that have come to pass. It also delves into other eras, real and otherworldly.

Today, Eric Peterson is thrilled to reveal the brand new fantasy-driven music video for DRAGONLORD's new track "Northlanders" - a track about the brutality of 11th century Northmen - chock full of massive ships, piercing swords, dark landscapes, and beyond! The video was edited by Jan Yrlund and features hand-drawn art depicting the lyrical content of the track by Christian Sloan Hall. Watch the music video now on KNAC.COM HERE.

Eric Peterson says about "Northlanders", "This is one of the first songs I wrote for the Dominion album, way back when the History Channel first put out Vikings, which it's clearly inspired by! While I wish I had a Vikings-level budget for this music video, I actually love how this video came out because it encompasses what black metal is all about - grit and straightforward rawness! Peterson adds, "It's worth noting that this song also spawned the character dubbed "THE BURNER" from my comic that I first put out at this year's San Diego Comic Con, which will soon be available through a bundle pack and the web store at www.enterthedragonlord.com!"

Dominion is a dark fantasy fan's musical dream - exploring everything from Nordic history to Lord of the Rings! Dominion's eight songs create a deep and heady musical journey rife with meaning and menace, from the blackest and loudest recesses of Eric Peterson's mind.

Peterson recorded Dominion at Northern California's Trident Studios and produced it with an assist from engineer/mixer Juan Urteaga (TESTAMENT, MACHINE HEAD, M.O.D.). Dominion was mastered by famed producer/engineer Jens Bogren of Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. In addition to Eric Peterson, Dominion features the musical talents of Lyle Livingston (PSYPHERIA) on orchestrated keys and pianos, Alex Bent (TRIVIUM) on drums, and notable fantasy metal singer Leah on female vocals and choirs (who has performed/recorded with members of BLIND GUARDIAN, NIGHTWISH, DELAIN and others).

Peterson formed DRAGONLORD in 2000 as its singer and guitarist (with keyboardist Lyle Livingston and now ex-members Steve Di Giorgio of TESTAMENT and Jon Allen of SADUS), and notes that the growth from DRAGONLORD's first two records to the cinematic triumph and brutal blast-beats of Dominion has been immense. Dominion's stellar, complex, brutally symphonic metal is triumphant in its execution, bringing together layers of meaning and musicality into an unholy whole.

Dominion track listing:

  • "Entrance"
  • "Dominion"
  • "Ominous Premonition"
  • "Lamia"
  • "Love of the Damned"
  • "Northlanders"
  • "The Discord of Melkor"
  • "Serpents of Fire"
