about

Overlord Oxford, UK

Overlord play a fresh, modern take on the dark, progressive rock/early metal bands of the 1970s, informed as much by modern thrash/groove metal as they are by traditional blues. Through these myriad influences, the band intends to create music that can be enjoyed and appreciated by any fan of heavy music. ... more

Track Name: Authors
This time
We'll stand taller
It's time for us to take you under
Face up
We won't take this anymore

Conventions
We must fell them
Step up, who's Gonna tell them
They can't rule us
They won't rule us anymore

CHORUS
We are the authors of tomorrow
We've got to hold you to your words
No more excuses or illusions
Don't you pretend you haven't heard

You haven't heard
You haven't heard
You haven't heard
You haven't heard!

Their rules
Are misguided
Self-serving and simple-minded
We ask questions
We’re left staring at the wall

These people
Do not question
Stand up, time to pay attention
You can’t let them
We won’t let them carry on

CHORUS
Track Name: Take You Down
Rollin' on
And my blades still sharp
Gonna take you down
Gonna make my mark
Gotta keep on moving
Gotta take you down

CHORUS
I don’t know why you did what you did
But it ain’t something I can forgive
I’m gonna take you down
I don't know why you do what you do
But every path just leads me to you
I'm gonna take you down

You got time to kill
You got time to waste
And what you’re feeling now
Is just a little taste
Gotta have my vengance
Y’gotta see what you’ve become

CHORUS
Track Name: Ascent
Head’s on fire
One desire
Climb a little higher than before
Steps I’ve mastered
Pushing faster
Knowing in my heart that I won’t fall

CHORUS
Ascent
And climb into the sky
Ascent
I feel like I could fly
Ascent
My heart begins to race
Ascent

Keeping steady
Feeling ready
Try your worst you couldn’t stop me now
Rise above this
Taking notice
In my heart I feel no fear at all

CHORUS
Track Name: Switch Off
Your guiding light sits in the palm of your hand
Obey its orders and respect its demands
Can’t comprehend how you can think that it’s right
To let this dominate your day and your night

CHORUS
Desperate quest to connect
The bond is fickle, no respect
Fictitious world inside your mind
Switch off and see what you can find

You’re disembodied from the world that we’re in
Closed-off and callous, you’re closed-minded, thick skinned
Wish we could break our chains, I wish we were free
From domination by this technology

CHORUS
