Metalord is a four piece band from Quebec city, Canada but they were formerly from Charlevoix, just close from this beautiful city. The band officially formed in 2007 around Marc Bélanger on vocals and guitars, A-J Belley on vocals and drums and it is now completed with Sébastien Maltais on bass and Mathieu Boivin as the lead-guitar player.

Inspired from the beginning by the american « Big four » thrash metal movement, the band evolved throughout the years to become an ensemble mixing the original thrash spirit of the ‘80’s with a modern metal sauce, as well as exploiting intense melody wich is going to please an open ear willing to taste hooky choruses and scorching riffage.

Launched in 2015, their debut album Speed of life earned national and international praise with its fast and intense offer. The album got Metalord on stages around, the province and most notably openning for prog metal legends Queensrÿche at l’Impérial de Québec in 2016 while the self- titled Speed of life vidéo is keeping on showing what the band is capable of. Metalord is ready to bring over its metal madness full speed ahead, hang on !

Metalord est un quatuor dont les membres, maintenant installés à Québec, sont tous originaires de Charlevoix. Le groupe s’est officiellement formé en 2007 autour de Marc Bélanger au chant et à la guitare, et d’A-J Belley au chant et à la batterie. Le groupe est aujourd’hui complété par Sébastien Maltais à la basse et par Mathieu Boivin à la guitare solo.

Influencé à ses débuts par le « Big Four » du thrash métal américain, Metalord a évolué au cours des années pour devenir un ensemble mélangeant l’esprit thrash traditionnel des années ’80 à une sauce métal décidément moderne, tout en exploitant des mélodies qui sauront plaire à une oreille attentive en quête de refrains accrocheurs et de riffs décapants.

Lancé en 2015, l’album Speed of life a suscité des réactions plus que positives au niveau national et international grâce son offre musicale à la fois rapide et intense. L’album a propulsé le groupe sur les scènes de la région notamment lors d’une très remarquée première partie du groupe Queensrÿche à l’Impérial de Québec en 2016 alors que le clip de la chanson titre Speed of life continue à montrer aux internautes ce dont le groupe est capable. Metalord est prêt à exporter son métal à toute vitesse, accrochez-vous !

METALORD : Debut album “Speed of Life” and video release

Quebec City, April 14th  - METALORD announces its new album and releases its  first video "Speed of Life". The full album entitled "Speed of Life" is distributed by Universal Music in Canada and Believe Digital worldwide.

Melodic, yet full of power and strength, METALORD is the bare essence of pure Metal. For its first album, METALORD approached music producer Jean Perruno, known for his work with Canadian act JLM (1.5 million copies sold throughout the world, nominated at the Juno Awards & Much Music Video Awards). Together they refined the musical direction of the songs and recorded the album at the Sylver Recording Studio in Quebec city.

The band started in the early 2000's as a noisy outfit in singer/ lead guitarist Marc Belanger's parent’s basement in Quebec. The original line-up also featured A-J Belley on the drums, joined by the bass player Sebastien Maltais and solo guitarist Samuel Pare.  Inspired by their heroes from Metallica, Megadeth, Nirvana, Pantera, Slayer and other great bands, the band has played in bars, festivals and parties in Canada since then. METALORD used the classic recipe: playing as a cover band first, they then replaced covers with their own material. The band gained local recognition, which is expanding day by day, always for the pleasure of packed and metal friendly audiences. 

The band is set to tour extensively this coming year. Be sure to see and enjoy this new musical sensation coming to a city near you.
