HOUSE OF LORDS's new album, "Cartesian Dreams", was released on September 18 in Europe and October 13 in the USA via Frontiers Records.

Following the 2008 release of "Come to My Kingdom", a record hailed by critics and fans as one of the highlights of the season, HOUSE OF LORDS carved another masterpiece that sets in stone the legacy of one of the most productive and impressive bands of the scene.

"This new CD was truly a labor of love," said singer James Christian. "I was so fortunate to be able to work once again with my writing partner and friend Mark Baker. The last time Mark and I worked together was to write and record 'Demons Down'. We have a great chemistry when it comes to writing songs. Jimi Bell once again gave us smoking tracks and Tommy Denander also put his contribution on a few great tracks."

The songs written for the new CD offer many different flavors. "The band, as usual, always strives to stay true to its sound but this time around we expanded our horizons a bit without compromising the trademark sound that so many people expect from us," said James. "We don't want to keep making the same record over and over, so this time around you will hear a few things you did not hear on the previous CDs."

"Cartesian Dreams" is a natural progression for a band that has such a long history and is just what you would expect and even more: superb hooks, majestic atmospheres that bring back the memories of the debut album, monumental guitar riffs and a production to die for. "The one common thread with the band is that we are always on the same page in terms of what want our records to sound like," explains James.
