Matti Steve, Paul and FDJ are totally right (of course they are!) about this one. There's nothing to add to their posts! Fantastic stuff! Favorite track: The Great Shadow Game.

paul rote What a great band. This is just a studio jam. I beg you guys, get serious write some good songs, use your natural skills and step into your destiny. You can be one of the best.you just need a few 8& 9 minute songs with this quality production. This is a must have doomy & psychedelic jam full of killer acid guitar. Favorite track: The Cave Part One.
FDJ thumbnail
FDJ Lord Montague return with another slab of incendiary stoner/proto metal excellence. This time around they've added a bit of funkiness to their grooves and given a whole new dimension to their sound.
This band are just so fuckin' good! Favorite track: The Cave Part One.

This is a modern day version of Plato's Allegory of the Cave, from THE REPUBLIC.

In this version, a child is born into the world, and soon after is lured into the modern "cave" by way of the television, the church, and government propaganda. This process is chronicled in "Lord Montague Theme" and "The Cave Part One".

After being fully brainwashed, the prisoner plays the "shadow game" for a while, but soon he realizes that his "reality" is not reality. He escapes from the cave, running as far away as possible. (The Cave Part Two)
