SAINT DEAMON was formed in 2006 by ex-DIONYSUS drummer Ronny Milianowicz who subsequently recruited fellow DIONYSUS member Nobby Noberg on bass, guitarist Toya Johansson and former HIGHLAND GLORY/WILD WILLY'S GANG frontman Jan Thore Grefstad on vocals. With the lineup complete, the band began work on their debut album, "In Shadows Lost From The Brave", which was produced by Jens Bogren (SYMPHONY X, HAMMERFALL) and has just been released on Frontiers Records.

Although new to the scene, members of the band have a host of songwriting credits to their name, including Ronny, who has co-written with both PRIMAL FEAR and CANS, and Toya, who's worked with SINNER and RIDE THE SKY. Their wealth of experience has been put to good use on "In Shadows Lost From The Brave", which combines classy melodic hard rock with touches of power metal and is already receiving great reviews.
