Produced in Rome, Italy, in 1991, Stormlord toiled in obscurity for quite some time, quietly recording many demos and shuffling musicians before turning their collective gaze northwards to Scandinavia’s bustling extreme steel scene. There they discovered like-minded accomplices in up-and-coming symphonic dark metal rings like Dimmu Borgir and Borknagar, and, after dispensing using their loss of life metal origins on 1997’s Beneath the Sign from the Sword EP, Cristiano Borchi (vocals), Pierangelo Giglioni (acoustic guitar), Francesco Bucci (bass), Fabrizio Cariani (keyboards) and Marcello Baragona (drums) started establishing their potential sound on the next year’s Where My Soul Forever WILL BE promo CD. Authorized to Last Show Productions, Stormlord unleashed their full-length debut recording, Supreme Artwork of Battle in August 1999, and, with fresh users David Folchitto (drums) and Simone Scazzocchio (keyboards) in tow, lay out on their 1st European tour assisting Mystic Group, Graveworm and Suidakra. The entire year 2000 noticed them shifting to Scarlet Information for the discharge of their The Curse of Medusa EP, and, along with 2001’s In the Gates of Utopia, these founded Stormlord as best metal contenders over the Italian shoe, earning them looks at many main festivals along the way. Second guitarist Gianpaolo Caprino was brought on-board for ever-increasing touring engagements, and, carrying out a brief break, Stormlord shipped their third and perhaps best recording in 2004’s The Gorgon Cult.
