Tyrannosaurus Nebulous are a four-piece hard rock band from Stourbridge in the Black Country, UK. Their sound is crafted around classic 70’s hard rock. With listeners comparing them to a diverse range of classic rock bands such as AC\DC, Alice In Chains, Budgie and Thin Lizzy.
The present line-up formed in 2014 and released the ‘Deal With My Evil’ EP in 2016. Recorded at Magic Garden Studios in Wolverhampton with acclaimed producer Gavin Monaghan, mastered by David Mitson (Alice In Chains, Michael Jackson, etc.) with artwork by illustrator Bill Hauser.
Having enjoyed previous success working with Producer Gavin Monaghan the band started working on their debut album 'Tyrant Lizard King' in 2017 at Magic Garden Studios. The recording mixing and mastering process was completed just prior to the Coronavirus lockdown in the UK, and the album was put on ice waiting for the music scene to rise once again.
Rock music is timeless, the album mixes traditional hard rock songs with a dystopian sci-fi quadrilogy that starts with ‘Magnetar’ and ends with the ‘TLK’ trilogy.
The hard rock element of the album draws on a period of personal turmoil within the band, drawing on anger, heartbreak and personal loss.
The artwork and Sci-fi themes outlined on the 2016 EP have been expanded on to create a dystopian universe where a battle rages between man and extra-terrestrial forces of evil. Man’s only hope is to resurrect its greatest killing machine, the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex, modified with the best of modern killing and time travel technology.
The album ‘Tyrant Lizard King’ was released in March 2022 to glowing reviews and has elevated the bands standing in the NWOCR (New Wave of Classic Rock) scene.
