“Astral Lady Hits #5 on September '23 Doom Charts”
“Lord Velvet is an absolute force to be reckoned with. I have no clue what otherworldly stuff is going down in the Rockies or what’s in the water there (Coors Light, perhaps?), but something is afoot, and it’s awesome.”
“Lord Velvet has given us a succinct experience marked by a dash of exploration and experimentation. Each song has weight and value, and that makes for a stronger overall record. ”
Explorers to the gates of the astral plane, Lord Velvet awoke upon the Denver scene with cosmic riffs bearing the weight of the Rockies with every wretched beat, drawing upon the influences of the awakened before us to send humanity into the next age of electric religion.
Taylor Webb (Vocals), Scoot Scott (Guitar) Matt Funk (Bass), and Mike Barnes (Drums) formed Lord Velvet in 2022. They are guided by Scoot’s love of 70’s rock and roll like Atomic Rooster, Mountain, Sir Lord Baltimore, Leaf Hound, and Deep Purple along with Matt’s heavy psych influences, Taylor’s soaring vocals inspired by Arthur Brown and Pagan Altar and Mike’s punk and doom background to deliver a crushing and energetic experience.
The first single “Night Terrors” was released in February of 2022 and the debut album “Astral Lady” came out September 1st 2023. Long live Rocky Mountain Rock and Roll!
