These former members are vocalist Pete Lovell, alongside guitarists Mike Ferguson and André Wullems. The trio then teamed up with bassist Patrick Velis and Noel van Eersel on drums to flesh out a powerful, well-equipped lineup for Lovell’s Blade.
Recorded and mixed by Serge Naberman at the prestigious Claim to Fame Sound Studio, the group’s hard-hitting debut album, Stone Cold Steel, is a must-hear for diehard fans of classic heavy metal. Drawing inspiration from any number of traditional metal greats, Stone Cold Steel finds the quintet delivering an array of fist-pumping hooks with only the slightest hint of a modern touch, providing Lovell’s Blade with a sound that’s as fresh and new as it is tried and true!
Hot on the heels of top-notch reissues from Pete Lovell’s previous musical endeavors with Picture and Emergency, Divebomb Records is thrilled to provide a perfect home for Stone Cold Steel throughout North America this winter. And Lovell’s Blade is prepared to keep firing on all cylinders, premiering a new video and European live dates beginning in December, and with a South American tour through Open the Road Agency taking shape for the latter half of 2017.
Divebomb Records owner, Matthew Rudzinski, states:
“After having previously worked with Pete Lovell on reissuing his musical endeavors with Picture and Emergency it only made sense that we help to promote this brand new chapter. We look forward to bringing Lovell’s Blade to music fans all over North America this winter.”
The release of Stone Cold Steel will coincide with a new video clip and a number of European dates starting in December.
Stone Cold Steel is slated for release on February 10, 2017.
