about

Formed in the late 1970s under the name Rhanen, they would change their name to Overlorde by 1980. By 1984 the band self-released the now infamous 'Medieval Meta' EP. The release caught the ear of Metal Blade Records owner Brian Slagiel and lead to Overlorde being featured on 1987 Metal Massacre compilation album. The band then recorded a three song demo that was never released and by 1989 the band had faded into obscurity.
Several years later the band once again would begin to play and in March of 2011 'Medieval Metal Too' would be released (under the name Overlorde SR) ; a compilation of early Overlorde material including the cult classic "Medieval Metal' EP.

Track Name: OVERD SR - Full Speed Ahead
Full Speed Ahead

Voices Scream filling up the sky
People are running scared
Nowhere left to hide
Panic in their hearts
Ripping at their souls
Now they’re trying to find the answers
With no where left to go

There’s fire in the streets
It’s burning all around
Death weaves its final web
The whole world in its shroud
Government control our lives
Your number is your name
You know we're in the final race
We have ourselves to blame

People’s faces they all look the same
No one asking questions
Trying to play this game
But as I look around me time is passing by
My future is upon me before my past has died

Many lives have sacrificed
Thousands more are scorned
And all men have to pay the price
When the angels blow their horns
Your life is just a playing card
No one keeping score
The world turns on uncertain
This ride is never sure

People’s faces they all look the same
No one asking questions
Trying to play this game
But as I look around me
Time is passing by
My future is upon me
Before my past has died

Full Speed Ahead
Track Name: OVERLORD SR - Keeper of the Flame
Keeper of the Flame

In the darkness there is a flame
Shadow of light that makes us stay
Lies an image as old as time
With dragon’s power can't rule his mind
Kings and Queens will never hold
The inner darkness of his soul
Cuts his path straight through the sun
You touch his hand you burn as one

(Pre-Chorus)
The Keeper of the flame
In the darkness and the rain
Keeper of the flame


Quest for riches is not his gain
There's a fire to keep his name
Darkness hides within the light
Burning endless through the night
Death riding close in the shadows edge
Exposed to light that burns you dead
Never heard nor never seen
His only traces are in dreams

(Chorus)
The Keeper of the flame
In the darkness and the rain
Keeper of the flame
Never feeling any pain
Keeper of the flame
The Keeper of the flame

In the darkness there is a flame
Shadow of light that makes us stay
Lies and image as old as time
With dragon’s power, can't rule his mind
Kings and Queens will never hold
The inner darkness of his soul
Cuts his path straight through the sun
You touch his hand you burn as one

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: OVERLORD SR - Enchantress of the Night
Enchantress of the Night

In the heart of the city, heat of the night
Looking so pretty, looking so tight
Rockin’ the hard way in leather and lace
Weaving your magic, not leaving a trace
Pleasures and riches are always your gain
Ending in sorrow, it's always the same
Deceiver of lovers, sorcerer of faith
Take heed of my warning before it's too late

(Chorus)
The enchantress of the night
Feel the candles burning bright
The enchantress of the night
She'll be gone before daylight

You can feel her eyes calling, drawing you near
Trapped in her power, nothing is clear
Caught in her circle, a link in a chain
No chance to process all emotions in vain
Chasing a shadow, you’re lost in a dream
Know where you’re going, know where you've been
Daughter of darkness, mistress of sin
In total submission your heart never wins

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: OVERLORD SR - In the Year 2525
In the Year 2525

Written and composed by Rick Evans

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find
In the year 3535
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
Everything you think, do, and say
Is in the pill you took today

In the year 4545
Ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes
You won't find a thing to chew
Nobody's gonna look at you

In the year 5555
Your arms are hanging limp at your sides
Your legs got nothing to do
Some machine is doing that for you

In the year 6565
Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife
You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too
From the bottom of a long glass tube' Whoooa

In the year 7510
If God's a-comin' he ought to make it by then
Maybe he'll look around himself and say
Guess it's time for the Judgement day

In the year 8510
God is gonna shake his mighty head then
He'll either say I'm pleased where man has been
Or tear it down and start again

In the year 9595
I'm kinda wondering if man is gonna be alive
He's taken everything this old earth can give
And he ain't put back nothing

Now it's been 10,000 years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what he never knew
Now man's reign is through
But through eternal night
The twinkling of starlight
So very far away
Maybe it's only yesterday

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may thrive
In the year 3535
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
Everything you think, do or say
Is in the pill you took today ....(fading...)
Track Name: OVERLORD SR - Knights of the Realm
Knights of the Realm

Hail avenging rider, defender of the realm
Fighting for your kingdom with Arthur at the helm
The visions of a wizard coming of a thrown
The coming of dark ages, sword within a stone

(Chorus)
From the knights’ realm
Knights of the Round Table
Knights’ realm
Knights of the Round Table

Now twilight is upon you as evil comes to call
Morgan’s stolen magic brings a curse unto us all
Spoke the charm of making
To breed her unclean son
Child of perdition, you know he's not the one

Through the knights’ realm
Knights of the Round Table
Knights’ realm
Knights of the Round Table
Knights’ realm
Knights of the Round Table
Knights’ realm
Knights of the Round Table

Hail darken rider defender of our fate
Fighting for your freedom, death is no disgrace
The visions of a wizard, coming of a thrown
The coming of dark ages, sword within a stone

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: OVERLORD SR - So Be It
So Be It

In a time of legends and days of old
When men wore metal and hearts were bold
When fire fills the distance sky
And trumpets sound the battle cry
Defenders from the Viking hoard
Warring from the northern shore
With horses running through the night
Men in arms prepare to fight
When seeking vengeance swords are drawn
They meet the foe in the light of dawn
While hillsides burn as warriors fall
The kingdom says defend the law

As lightning strikes the dragon’s tongue
By the saints it shall be won
With the smash of armor, fire and steel
You feel the pain of death, it's real
The battle raging all around
You know you must stand your ground
You fight to win, you live to die
With terror in your battle cry
The mash of teeth, the bite of steel
As blood flows from the sword you wield
So you raise your shield, the time has come
Your enemies are on the run

So Be II
So Be It

(Repeat Verse I)
Track Name: OVERLORD SR - Trouble
Trouble

Now tell what's to see
It isn't any mystery
It's like it used to be
You know just what you do to me

Carry the load you brought so far
Can't let go it's a part of you now
How can you remember?
How can you forget?
The love we knew
Was that never spent?

(Pre-Chorus)
Trouble stay away from me
Trouble hey mama now let me be

It used to be
You wanted to be close to me
I tried to make you see
I knew that it could never be, no way

All that remains is the broken chains
Now your wicked lies driving me insane
Tried to hold on but I got to let you go
Wanted to leave but now I truly know

(Chorus)
Trouble stay away from my door
I can't take it any more
Now I said trouble stay away from me
Now trouble
Now mama let me be

Now tell what's to see
It isn't any mystery
It's like it used to be
You know just what you do to me

Carry the load you can run so far
Can't let go it's a part of you now
How can you remember how can you forget
The love we knew was that never spent


(Repeat Chorus)
