Lordian Guard

Lordian Guard is the band formed by ex- Warlord guitarist Bill Tsamis, and though much time has passed since the last Warlord release, in some senses Lordian Guard picks up right where vintage Warlord left off. Much of the song structures and classiness from Warlord are prevalent here -- on the other hand, keyboards are much more prominent and the guitars are toned down (more acoustic than in the past), and so Lordian Guard isn't nearly as heavy as Warlord was. Some of the debut album might remind one of the more mainstream Warlord songs such as "Lost And Lonely Days". Vocalist Vidonne's alto vocals are interesting, and the lyrics are Christian, though not oppressively so. Though this isn't heavy by traditional metal standards, it is quite interesting, and especially recommended to Warlord fans. The second album, "Sinners ...", is arguably the better of the two.

Tsamis later resurrected Warlord for a new album in 2002, though since then neither that band nor this one seems particularly active.
