Sounds great! Rob Lowe seems much better suited to Tyrant rather than Candlemass. Even if it's a phone recording, you get the impression that this sounds great.

Edit: Did I mention that this sounds great?

This isn't like the first two, but it's not bad at all honestly. I was expecting much worse from them so this is reassuring in a way. I'm cautiously optimistic!

For anyone else having trouble getting the video to work, it turns out that Forgotten Scroll don't support chrome very well. Opened the link in IE and it worked fine.

Will undoubtedly check this out. Having said that, I really haven't liked Rob Lowe outside of the first couple of Solitude Aeturnus albums, and don't know how well he'll work for Tyrant. Sounds like the band is writing material more suited to him than their earlier stuff would be though.

Damn. I wish I could say i was excited about this. Too late to Pray is one of my favourite albums. Last spring I was in new York and caught Tyrant with Attacker, Deceased and a bunch of other bands. I was expecting Glen May, and when Rob Lowe was singing for them, i was completely nonplussed. I wish I could say he performed the material with strength and conviction, but it was quite a letdown, to be honest. I was hoping it was just a one-off type thing, having him in the band.
Hush! and hark
To the sorrowful cry
Of the wind in the dark.
Hush and hark, without murmur or sigh,
To shoon that tread the lost aeons:
To the sound that bids you to die.

Normally I would be happy for Rob Lowe fronting one of my favourite heavy metal bands. I love his vocals in Solitude Aeturnus and Candlemass. I think we has a distinct, powerful voice but I think he really does not fit Tyrant. He lacks the raw charisma and madness of Glen May who to me WAS Tyrant. Without him it will take a great album to convince me.

Hmm, I'll have to see how this turns out, Tyrant's first two albums are fantastic and Rob Lowe used to be amazing, but what I've heard of his vocals more recently makes me a bit iffy, and as Zdan says, I'm not quite sure if he'll fit Tyrant (or maybe they'll mold the songwriting more along his vocal style, who knows). Definitely something I'll be interested to look into and keep an eye on.
