Lorenguard To Release Debut Album

U.S. fantasy metal band Lorenguard, featuring guitarist Christopher Cruz (Ex-Demiricous) and vocalist Robb Graves (Ex-Winterfell), will independently release the band's debut LP "Eve Of Corruption: The Days of Astasia, Part 1" on November 29, 2011 through the band's website at this location, CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes and other retailers.

The band's press release reads: "Co-founded by guitarist Christopher Cruz (ex-Demiricous), Lorenguard is an ambitious multimedia project that has been in the works for the past seven years. Conceived to be a conceptual band that writes story-driven music, Lorenguard bases its songs on the literary work of the band’s drummer, Brady Sadler. Their debut album is an entirely independent release, produced and funded without any support from a record label.

" 'Eve of Corruption' is based on a novel of the same name, which will be released in early 2012. All ten songs on the album are chronologically based on the events and characters of the novel.

"Lorenguard was loosely formed in 2004 by Cruz, Brady Sadler, and bassist Adam Sadler. The band released an early EP entitled “Of Tales to Come” (2005) with Rob Stith (vocals). However, Stith was soon replaced by Robb Graves (ex-Winterfell) in 2007. Since then, the band’s lineup has been as follows:

Robb Graves (ex-Winterfell) – Vocals
Christopher Cruz (ex-Demiricous) – Guitars
David Schneider – Guitars
Alec Biccum – Keyboards
Adam Sadler – Bass
Brady Sadler – Drums
Raleigh Barrett – Narrations & Backing Vocals"
