StormLord is an Epic Black Metal band from Italy. They
have released 10 albums/demos/EPs, and aren't very
well known. The group uses keyboards to give their
songs an epic, melodic sounding atmosphere.
Occasionally they will have a female singer to add a
“Gothic” feel to the music. They are also influenced by
power metal, as the normally powerful screams from
frontman Christiano Borchi are occasionally replaced by
singing (which is still quite effective). Their sound could
be described as Iron Maiden meets Emperor. “The
Gorgon Cult” was released in 2004, to much critical
praise and positive fan response. In 2008, they released
their latest album called: “Mare Nostrum”.
