Australian metal band Lord have kicked off 2022 with a bang, releasing their Blood Red Skies EP, featuring a cover of the Judas Priest classic of the same name, as well as a recent cover of Iron Maiden's "Stratego"

The Australian Independent Record Label Association (AIR) has announced that Blood Red Skies has debuted at #1 on the Australian Independent Album chart. The release has also reached #2 on the Australian Independent Label Album chart, just behind Australian pop royalty, Kylie Minogue.

Blood Red Skies, highlighted by Lord's cover of the Judas Priest classic, is available via Bandcamp with a limited edition CD release and exclusive merchandise still available. Limited tracks are available on Spotify and Apple Music.

AIR is a non profit, non government association dedicated to supporting the growth and development of Australia’s independent recording sector. Established in 1996, AIR represents Australian owned record labels and independent artists based in Australia.

The full EP, exclusive to Bandcamp, comes with the Iron Maiden cover of "Stratego", which was previously a YouTube only release, "Wilder Than The Wind (Dicks Out Mix)" being a bonus track from the 2019 studio album Fallen Idols, as well as a half hour podcast chat between Andy and LT, talking about the release, 2021 in review and plans for new music.

You can listen to "Blood Red Skies" and "Stratego" on Spotify and Apple Music. The full EP with limited edition CD and exclusive merchandise can be found on the band's Bandcamp store here.

"Blood Red Skies" can be originally found on the Judas Priest 1988 release, Ram It Down. "Stratego" can be originally found on the Iron Maiden 2021 release, Senjutsu.
