Guitarz Forever Press Release
July 02, 2008
|Hey Guitar Fans
The New Release Date on ANT HILL Records - The long-awaited debut CD The Screamin’ Lords
‘Long Live Me’ – Ant Hill Records
"This CD screams of pure rock at its finest!"
This album JUST ROCKS PERIOD ... Guitar-oriented style, in the genre of Judas Priest, Deep Purple, Dokken, AC/DC, UFO, Fastway… Ballsy, but bluesy, this CD screams of pure rock at its finest.
“If you dig a serious seek-and-destroy approach to rock 'n' roll, you'll get the goods on the debut album from The Screamin' Lords. Commandeering a broad swath of rock 'n roll turf, the Lords reign with a potent blend of guitar fury and relentless rhythm. They're got the firepower for shred-worthy missives like "Fire in the Blue Sky" and the title track "Long Live Me," as well as the restraint and dynamics to conjure the simmering menace of "Evil," my personal favorite. Long live The Screamin' Lords.”
John Levy – Guitar Player Magazine
The Screamin Lords are a new and explosive rock band out of L.A. What's more they are fully loaded with meaty morsels of screamin’ metal too. This mob is busting at the seams with extremely talented, professionally well established musicians. Simply put, Bands like this have been missing from the hard rock music scene for a long time.

"The full-tilt rock & roll attack from this foursome, complete with searing, old-school soloing, is something to behold." - Music Connection.com
The Screamin' Lords - "Long Live Me is a fabulous trip back to the days when "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" meant much, much more than an "edgy" phrase emblazoned upon t-shirts for sale at Target." - Michael Molenda, Editor In Chief - Guitar Player
"For an eight-tracker, this album is 100% switched on. No time or room for soppy ballads, just head-on rock n roll. Taking riffs out of the yesteryear songbooks, you'll feel right at home if classic rock a la Judas Priest, AC/DC, Aerosmith and Ted Nugent is your bag." - Hardrock Hideout.com

Sleeze Roxx.com This is the third year that I've compiled a list of my favorite CDs, and so far this has been the hardest one to do. There was so much great music in 2007 that narrowing the list down to just ten was almost impossible. I thought about expanding to 20 albums, and even adding some honorable mentions, but finally decided to keep things as they were - simple and too the point.
2007 was an eventful year for hard rock fans, with the return of many hair metal musicians and the loss of several others. It seems like every band that ever dreamed of making it big during metal's 80s reign has decided to return to recapture some of their former magic. However you can't overlook the endless stream of new groups rising from the ashes, of which the majority seem to hail from Sweden. If exceptional CDs by Great White and Adrenaline Factor failed to make the grade, then you know just how great 2007 was for hard rock fans!
10. THE SCREAMIN' LORDS - Long Live Me CD Review - Band Website
The Screamin' Lords come second to only Crazy Lixx when it comes to capturing the sound of the 80s metal/hard rock heyday. And helping this new band capture that sound are vocalists Kelly Keeling (Baton Rouge) and Robin McAuley (MSG), two veterans from that time frame. It is great to see a hungry new band squeeze out the best from some long forgotten veterans. Last year McAuley helped the Demon Angels to manage that feat, and this year he does it again with The Screamin' Lords.
