Frontiers Records is excited to announce the signing of the next Melodic Metal sensation from Sweden SAINT DEAMON,In Shadows Lost From The Brave” on January 25th 2008. for the release of their debut album “
This Swedish/Norwegian band, named after a fictive ghost rider called S. Deamon, was formed in 2006 by drummer Ronny Milianowicz after a 7 year long successful era with Swedish/German melodic metal band Dionysus.
He rejoined his forces with Dionysus bass player Nobby Noberg, which Ronny describe as “The best bass player in the business”, along with the exceptional guitar virtuoso Toya Johansson, which Ronny knew back from their studying together at the University Of Music, in Örebro Sweden.
The band scanned the whole internet to find a singer that would do their magnificent music justice and in the spring of 2008, they finally found the ultra talented voice of gold, Norwegian Jan Thore Grefstad, most known for his impressive singing in Norwegian power metallers Highland Glory and for being the singer in TNT guitarist Ronnie Le Tekro’s second band Wild Willy’s Gang, a position he took over after Jorn Lande.
The Saint Deamon line up was then complete and started to work on the debut album, under the guidance of the high acclaimed monster producer Jens Bogren, best known for his excellent work with Symphony X, Hammerfall, Opeth, Katatonia and Dionysus. The musical idea of Saint Deamon is to mix four very talented musicians dream and ideas and come up with a unique form of music that varies from apocalyptic riffing and shredding to visions of historical musical landscapes, from Gregorian hymns to the sophisticated aggression of the SAINT DEAMON stylish trademark of metal.
For those who haven’t heard about SAINT DEAMON and their members, think again, this band has an armada of song writing credits.
Ronny Milianowicz has been co-writing metal anthem singles like “Seven Seals”, “Fighting The Darkness” with Primal Fear, “Red Light” with Cans as well as some classic hymns for Dionysus; Toya have been co-writing immortal songs for Sinner and Ride The Sky and in 2006 together with Joacim Cans (Hammerfall), Uli Kusch (Ride The Sky, Masterplan, Helloween) and Ronny, co-wrote the Football World Cup Metal Hymn “Glorious” where some of the world’s leading metal singers such as Ralf Sheepers (Primal Fear), Tobias Sammet (Edguy), Edu Falaschi (Angra), Timo Kotipelto (Stratovarius) joined forces and blew of the roof entering on position # 7 in the Swedish charts: the highest position for any of the members ever in Sweden!
