For the songwriting, the band has collaborated with Mark Spiro (Giant, Bad English, Cheap Trick, etc.), with further contributions from Tommy Denander, Chris Pelcer and Richard Hymas.
House Of Lords debuted in 1989 with the release of their self-titled album, a record which is still regarded as one of the best arena rock releases of the 80’s. The colossal sound, the soaring vocals of James Christian and instrumental capabilities of the band (which featured ex-Angel and Giuffria keyboardist Gregg Giuffria, along with luminaries Lanny Cordola, Chuck Wright and Ken Mary), were reminiscent of frontrunners such as Whitesnake, Deep Purple and Van Halen and immediately brought them to the attention of the mainstream media and masses of hard rock fans.
The group subsequently enjoyed considerable success with a cover of Blind Faith’s ‘Can’t Find My Way Home’ that was included on their second album, ’Sahara’, but then briefly disbanded before returning in 1992 with a new line-up featuring original members Christan and Giuffria for ‘Demon’s Down’. However, with massive changes in the musical climate of the time, they then went into hibernation until the original line-up came back together in 2000 to release ‘Power And The Myth’, a controversial album featuring a sound that leant more towards progressive hard rock with 70’s rock influences.
putting together a new line-up with the blessing of co-founding member Giuffria.
House Of Lords has toured Europe and North America relentlessly in support of its releases and become a staple of the hard rock scene on both sides of the Atlantic. The group stands for superb hooks and majestic atmospheres that bring back the memories of their stellar debut album, monumental guitar riffs and music production to die for. These ingredients can all be found in abundance on ‘New World – New Eyes’.
