Exploding out of Poland comes a new
powerhouse of metal. Lion Music are
delighted to welcome Boguslaw Balcerak’s
Crylord to the labels roster.
Led by the prestigious
talents of guitarist Boguslaw Balcerak,
‘Blood Of The Prophets’
breathes new life into the neo-classical
genre with 12 first class songs chock full
of big riffs, dynamic rhythms, jaw dropping
guitar solos and infectious vocal melodies
from 3 of the most acclaimed vocalist in the
field - Carsten ‘Lizard’ Schulz
(Evidence One, ex Domain) and neo-classical
legends Mark Boals (ex Malmsteen /
Ring Of Fire) and Goran Edman (ex
Malmsteen / Karmakanic).
Blood Of The
powerful music was
inspired by the greats of neo-classical
guitar and hard rock/heavy/power metal along
with the epic qualities of film music. The
classical influence of masters like Bach,
Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin can also be
heard at times in Boguslaw’s delivery; yet
the album is proof that it’s possible to
absorb these influences and not come out as
a Malmsteen clone. With an effortless guitar
style Boguslaw delivers both passion and
power throughout the album providing the
perfect backdrop for lyrics inspired by
fantasy, mythology, bible, legends, love and
feelings all expertly delivered by Schulz,
Boals and Edman either individually or
in 1972, Boguslaw picked up the guitar at
age 16 and over the years was in several
bands based in his home city of Warsaw,
Poland. Crylord’s formation came about in
late 2007 but finding a suitable vocalist in
his native homeland proved difficult for
Balcerak. After growing frustrated at the
lack of home-grown vocal talent that could
deliver his material to the standard
required, Boguslaw set about recording the
albums instrumentation whilst continuing the
search for the right vocalists.
material that makes up
‘Blood Of The Prophets’ was written
and arranged on the turn of the years
2008/2009 with recordings commencing in the
spring of 2009 in two polish studios. Once
the songs were complete Boguslaw took a
chance and invited 3 of his favourite
vocalists to perform on the album - Mark
Boals, Goran Edman and Carsten ‘Lizard’
Schulz who all accepted after hearing the
quality of the music on offer. Some delays
in the vocal tracks due to scheduling
difficulties were encountered but the last
of the vocals were finished in early 2011.
It was at this point that Lion Music heard
some rough mix demos and a contract offer
was made immediately after being suitably
impressed by the material. With a deal in
place the final element of the album was
completed when Boguslaw asked King Diamond
guitar master and Sonic Train Studios sound
engineer Andy LaRocque to master the album.
The result being a strong sounding record
that puts many a neo-classical heavyweights
productions to shame!
August 2011 saw the recording of a
promotional video for the track ‘Warriors
Moon’ which will see release prior to
the album hitting stores on its release date
of 14th October 2011. Boguslaw Balcerak’s
Crylord is set to make a big impact on the
world of rock and metal with a debut album
brimming full of top quality material,
musicianship and complete with killer
artwork by Tadeu Grigolon.
