Virtue & Vice

This sonic sledgehammer delivers ten tracks of rib-cracking riffs and whiskey-fueled vocals - combining the best elements of stoner/doom/traditional metal, sprinkled with shredding leads and mountain moving choruses. The Robots have returned...

Album Notes
The Robot Lords of Tokyo have returned to deliver their third album of ten-ton riffage and whiskey-fueled vocals, available on CD and download January 15, 2013. Entitled Virtue & Vice, the record features numerous guest six-stringers, including Chris Poland (Megadeth), Tracy G (Dio), Wayne Findlay (Michael Schenker Group) , Steve Theado (American Dog) and Terry Adams (Propulsion).

The Robot Lords are the brainchild of Ohio-based songwriting duo Rick Ritzler (drums, guitar) and Paul Jones (vocals, guitar), who came up with the idea for the guest-laden project in 2006 and have since released two critically acclaimed albums on their own RLOT Records. Noted metal scribe Martin Popoff called their 2008 sophomore effort, Whiskey, Blood & Napalm, “the best indie I’ve heard in a decade. Like an ass kickin’ Black Label Society crossed with The Sword, it’s a MASTERPIECE of bludgeoning perfection and it will knock you on your ass.” His colleague Bob Nalbandian of Shockwaves/HardRadio called Jones “one of the most powerful new vocalists in metal today.”

For Virtue & Vice, Ritzler and Jones have once again teamed up with producer Joe Viers (Bobaflex, No Sky Today, XFactor1) to cook up their unique combination of classic metal riffing, stoner/doom grooves and southern swagger, sprinkled with just the right amount of shredding lead guitar pyrotechnics. In addition to the record’s nine new sonic sledgehammers, the Robots have once again reworked an obscure classic from the hard rock vaults, this time tackling the title track from Cinderella’s 1986 debut, Night Songs.

Another winner
Another great hard rocking release by Robot Lords that’s full of killer riffs and heavy lyrics. They remain at at the top of their game. They remind me of Clutch when they were heavy. Fans of Down and Corrosion of Conformity should enjoy this one. The songs are a hybrid of aggressive grooves and hard rock that continues to impress me each time I listen to it. This album is another knock out.
