    Australian metallers LORD have released A Personal Journey: Revisited - a reimagination of the 2003 debut album, A Personal Journey.

    LORD mainman L.T. explains, "It's been ten years since LORD played our first show under the current name so it seemed like an ideal time to cast an eye back to where it all began, and to bring the one remaining 'demo production' sounding album into line with the rest of our back catalogue.

    "A Personal Journey was recorded on literally zero budget, in a spare bedroom, on ancient hardware, into a computer less powerful than a current entry-level smartphone, and some parts of it were even transferred from a cassette into that computer. Although it eventually had professional mastering done to it, the album you hear today is still, more or less, that original demo. It's both a blessing and a shame that this album is largely considered a little known collector's item, despite boasting some really strong material."

    He continues, "In 2014 we revisited the early years of the band with The Dungeon Era box set, which featured all of the original Dungeon studio albums re-recorded by the current line-up, with modern production techniques and available in better-than-CD-quality HD audio. The positive response from that release set the wheels in motion to give A Personal Journey the same treatment, and finally give that album the production that wasn't possible when it was originally conceived.

    "We literally thought outside the box when doing this release. We chose not to do a CD pressing. Instead, we've made a collectible 'Access All Area pass' style USB key with the songs pre-ripped to MP3 and 24 bit HD FLAC. Rather than a small CD booklet, we chose to do an A5 sized saddle-stitched card-covered booklet, with larger artwork, lyrics, liner notes and lengthy retrospective of the last ten years. We think that gives people the best of all worlds with the convenience of digital files, the sound quality of an exact reproduction of the studio masters, a collectible physical product and larger than CD booklet sized artwork."

Liner notes by LT: "Imagine this scenario – you wake up after an horrific car crash to find yourself standing in a hospital room looking down on your body connected to machines that are keeping you alive. No one can see you or hear you but you’re fully aware of everything going on around you. This song is about the loneliness and frustration of watching people grieve over you and then subsequently squabbling over your right to die. As long as your body remains alive, you can’t move on to wherever your spirit is supposed to go. It’s certainly a unique perspective on the euthanasia debate! Who gets to play God? What would you do in that situation?"



One flash – I see my life in front of me
One crash – it’s fading from my mind
A journey incomplete, I was brought back from the light
Is this a destiny of fire?

How can this be?
I’m lying in front of me
Family and friends are gathered around
I scream
But no one can can hear me
Surrounded by people I know but so alone

I’m watching from the other side
Bound to this flesh that clings to life

Can’t return – beyond the help of anyone
Can’t move on – so much is left undone
Can’t break out – set me free
So do what must be done – How can I make you see?

So many days here by my side
So many nights I sit and cry
Can you see me?
Can’t you hear me call your name?

Sometimes I’m sure that you can see
It’s like you’re staring (back at me)
But you walk away, walk away…
Oh, can’t you hear my cries?

I see the world in a different light
I hear the words of those that think they have the right
The right to make a choice that isn’t theirs to make
Playing God
They can never hope to ever understand

Pull the plug, flick the switch
Let me leave this life of hell
Let me die in my own way – it’s my right

They say it’s wrong – they can’t see
They’d do the same if they were me
It’s time to set me free

It’s time to go, it’s time to leave – it’s time to say goodbye
It’s time to go, it’s time to leave – and walk into the light
It’s time to go, you will know I’ll be waiting for you on the other side
It’s time to go, it’s time to leave – goodbye…
