Former LEIGE LORD guitarist Tony Truglio will appear on UPWARDS OF ENDTIME's third CD, "From Genesis to Apocalypse and Beyond". This album will feature 14 previously unreleased songs in the '70s/early 80s hard rock/heavy metal style of BLACK SABBATH, JUDAS PRIEST, ANGEL WITCH, WITCHFINDER GENERAL, WIDOW (U.K.), QUARTZ, DEMON, UFO, Uli Jon Roth-era SCORPIONS, Bon Scott-era AC/DC, LAZARUS (SIN), and SAINT VITUS.
UPWARDS OF ENDTIME was created in Connecticut in 2003 by vocalist Philip Swanson as an obscure traditional heavy metal band. In addition to Tony Truglia, the lineup includes ex-TRIBE member Paul Wise on bass, VESTAL CLARET drummer Jim Quinn, and original member Matt Moran (also ex-TRIBE) on guitar. In addition to the new CD, UPWARDS AND ENDTIME, with its new lineup, will be covering "Straight from Hell" on an ANGEL WITCH tribute CD, to be released by Germany's Unbroken Metal.
Tony, Matt, Paul and Phil have been friends since childhood and have all played together at one time or another and now all reunited in UPWARDS OF ENDTIME.
LIEGE LORD formed in 1982 but began their recording career in June 1985 with their debut release, "Freedom's Rise", on the Iron Works/Azra label. That same year the band signed with the now legendary French label Black Dragon Records. LIEGE LORD eventually inked a deal with Metal Blade Records and released the classic "Burn To My Touch" and "Master Control" albums.
