Peter Orullian, best known in heavy metal circles as the voice of HEIR APPARENT during its highly successful 2006 reunion tour in Europe, was the frontman for FIFTH ANGEL at the Keep it True XIII festival in in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany on April 24. Orullian stepped in for vocalist Tim Branom, who was not able to participate due to throat issues.

"It's really unfortunate what happened with Tim, as we've known him for years and he's a great singer and a great guy," guitarist Ed Archer stated before the Keep It True concert. "He had trouble talking in the mornings after rehearsals and became very concerned with his voice. Tim came up with the idea of using an alternate singer, but we were hesitant to do that until we realized he was right and things were not getting better. We decided to get another vocalist and quickly found Peter."
Orullian, a native of Salt Lake City, Utah, who currently resides in the Seattle area, received classical vocal training from the renowned late maestro David Kyle. In addition to his work with HEIR APPARENT, Orullian has released a number of CDs with various musicians throughout the year and is a recipient of the Private Eye "Best Male Vocalist" award.
