LORD SYMPHONY was formed on December 31st, 2005. Our genre is Speed Power Metal, a style which is like an endangered species in our beloved Country Indonesia. Our mission is to "resurrect" Speed Power Metal genre in Indonesia which is currently "avoided" by common Indonesian metal bands, our musical style is a mix between common European Power Metal style and our own style blended with traditional elements of Indonesia traditional music.
Deeply rooted in Power metal, our music is influenced by some world's greatest metal bands, namely: Helloween, Rhapsody Of Fire, Symphony X, Stratovarius, Dragonforce, Megadeth and Indonesian famous shadow-puppet master Ki. Manteb Soedharsono who influenced our new album Bharatayudha Part. 1.
The main concept or the grand design of Bharatayudha Part. 1 album is inspired by great epic power metal masterpieces created by Italian RHAPSODY OF FIRE. They have created some epic album which tell us about: epic war/battle, knights, warrior, dragon, etc. We want to create our own album with our country's original epic story.
Our choice went to Bharatayudha, an epic battle/war story, part of an ancient Javanese epic story Mahabharata, written by Empu Sedah and Empu Panuluh in around year 1100 AD.
We want to mix typical European Power Metal style created by Helloween with our traditional music elements. And introduce our country's original epic story to the world with our conceptual albums.
