The Texas-based “super metal” quartet IMMORTAL GUARDIAN – whose founding member, Gabriel Guardian, has earned extensive notoriety for his ability to shred on guitar and keyboard simultaneously – delivers ten face-melting blasts of shred on their debut full-length, “Age of Revolution,” hailed by MetalSucks as “seriously epic symphonic power metal.”
Hailing from the same state as guitar greats Dimebag Darrell and Stevie Ray Vaughan, IMMORTAL GUARDIAN proudly fly the flag of musical innovation and virtuosity for the Lone Star State. Over the past few years, the group has released two acclaimed EPs, “Revolution Part I” (produced by Roy Z of Halford/Bruce Dickinson fame) and “Super Metal: Edition Z,” that showcased a full-frontal assault of anthemic melodies, technical rhythms, furious shred and high-flying vocals by Brazilian singer Carlos Zema (Outworld).
In support of their EPs, the group has made jaws drop on stages in not only their home state – where they've performed alongside some of the biggest names in metal, including Judas Priest, Dragonforce, Kamelot, Symphony X, Sonata Arctica, Slayer, Metal Church, Soilwork and Steve Vai – but also abroad in countries such as Brazil and Russia, and during high-profile performances at ESPN's X Games, South By Southwest and the Fun Fun Fun Fest. In addition, Gabriel Guardian has developed an extensive following on YouTube, where his unique dual-instrument covers of classics by the likes of Iron Maiden, Pantera and Guns N' Roses have garnered hundreds of thousands of views. His virtuosity was also recently showcased on the MTV program “Amazingness.”
Around the physical and digital release of “Age of Revolution” in September, IMMORTAL GUARDIAN embarked on a successful coast-to-coast American tour with Exmortus. In January, they will support guitar legend Marty Friedman (Megadeth, Cacophony) on an extensive tour, and in conjunction with their upcoming live shows, M-Theory Audio is proud to offer “Age of Revolution” on limited-edition colored vinyl (smoky blue with black streaks). The revolution is now!
