Former CRADLE OF FILTH guitarist Gian Pyres will be joining DRAGONLORD — the San Francisco-based black metal band featuring Eric Peterson (guitar, vocals; TESTAMENT), Derrick Ramirez (bass), Lyle Livingstone (keys) and Jon Allen (drums; SADUS, ex-TESTAMENT) — for a U.S. tour starting in November this year.
Gian, who was last seen playing guitar for CHRISTAN DEATH back in 2003 when they toured Europe with THEATRES DES VAMPIRES, commented, "I'm esctatic about playing black metal with these top-class musicians. It's gonna be good to be back on tour."
DRAGONLORD's sophomore album, "Black Wings of Destiny", is available now via Escapi Music. The follow-up to 2001's "Rapture" (Spitfire Records) was recorded and mixed by Fredrik Nordström (HAMMERFALL, DIMMU BORGIR, ARCH ENEMY) at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden.
DRAGONLORD performed on July 23 at the Earthshaker Fest in Geiselwind, Germany, where they showcased some of the new material and filmed footage for an upcoming DVD.
