It has been said that Overlord Canada produced one of the rarest heavy metal recording ever with their 1985 self-titled EP. That is not too difficult to believe knowing how not only uniquie this band was but also their challenges of the time being a Canadian band far away from away from where they needed to be to capture the right attention. However some interest did come from U.S. label such as Combat and Metal Blade but the timing was never right it seemed. Eventually time would pass and Overlord would slip further and further into obscurity, only to be re-discovered years later by collectors around the world with the help of the internet.
Their sound and approach was not typical of the time and certainly would have stood alone.At first listen one might think the band was one of those many lost in tyhe NWOBHM movement. With their proto-metal sound balancing on the dooier edge like Trouble, Overlorde were certainly a progressive heavy metal band of their time and true to the term “progressive”.

This compiliation is a collection of material of one of metal’s most unique and “oddest” bands of the 80s that no one ever heard.

For fans of; Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Trouble, Slough Feg, Manilla Road, Hammers of Misfortune, and the NWOBHM
