This is one that I only picked up within the last year or so off of eBay. When I saw that it had Bloodlust’s singer I had to check it out. How did I not know about this one before? WTF? But here we are…Lord’s Second Coming CD rereleased (aka bootlegged) on HOT METAL RECORDS. This label put out a bunch of obscure stuff like Hammeron, Satan’s Host, Killen, SA Slayer…but of course all as bootlegs and they sound like they were recorded straight from the vinyl. But I kind of like that on some things. Takes me back to the old days of listening to metal in my bedroom on my POS record player.
This is a good metal find though and oddly enough this is the first CD I ever loaded into my iTunes that it didn’t recognize. I am a bit surprised.
Second Coming starts out a bit odd in that there’s a ballad as the opening track. You do hear a side of Guy Lord’s voice that you don’t hear so much on Bloodlust’s Guilty As Sin LP. It picks up from here on the song Burnin’ but in more of a NWOBHM style. His vocals are clean and the riffs and well crafted IMHO. I’ve probably spun this 20 times since I picked it up last year. Some of the stuff has a 70s hard rock feel ala Pentagram’s more upbeat early stuff. There’s a variation of different hard rock/metal styles on here. I’m not much of a fan of The Doors but they do a pretty cool cover of The End.
So if you liked the vocals on Bloodlust’s Guilty As Sin, I recommend that you download this. It’s worth a few spins for some old metal listening.
