Lordian Guard was The Band Formed by ex- Warlord guitarist Bill Tsamis and in some senses Lordian Guard picked up right where vintage Warlord left off. Much of the song structures and classiness from Warlord were prevalent - on the other hand, keyboards were much more prominent and the guitars were toned down (more acoustic than in the past), and so Lordian Guard wasn't nearly as heavy as Warlord was. Some songs from the debut album might remind one of the more mainstream Warlord songs such as "Lost And Lonely Days". Vocalist Vidonne's alto vocals were interesting, and the lyrics were 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. A third album was planned, titled "The Holy Empire" but the band split up before it was released. The track "Invaders" from The Holy Empire was released on a Hellion records compilation, titled "Warzone XIV: Epic Metal Storm". Discography : 1995 - Lordian Guard (Full-length), 1996 - Behold a pale horse (Single), 1997 - Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God (Full-length)

If you are a fan of the first Lordian Guard album or Warlord, Uli Jon Roth, Phil Keaggy's "The Master and the Musician" album, etc., you'll be thrilled with this disc. It is epic, melodic, technical in a classical way, and full of neat imagery. In fact, group leader William J. Tsamis labels it Dark, Medieval Epic Metal. If you've never heard any of the above, let me describe it this way. the music is not realy heavy but it is really polished. there is a lot of melody throughout that you can remember when you are not listening to the album. The Melodies are played quite impressively on the Guitar / There is a Keyboard which accents the music but doesn't take away from the Guitars in any way. And the Female Vocals, which have a flair for the dramatic, are sung in the alto range.
