Hailing from the same state as guitar greats Dimebag Darrell and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Immortal Guardian and it’s founding member Gabriel Guardian continue to carry the flag of musical innovation and virtuosity for the lone star state. Sponsored by Fender Guitars at the young age of 22, Guardian with his one of a kind ability to shred on guitar and keyboard AT THE SAME TIME has brought to the table a new style of performance seen as novelty by some and pure genius by most. With the addition of Brazilian vocal siren Carlos Zema, the band has evolved into a full frontal metal assault of anthemic melodies, technical rhythms, and powerful highflying vocals. The band's latest release, Revolution Part I, was produced/engineered by the legendary Roy Z, who's clientele also include Judas Priest and Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson. Over the years they have toured the US, Brazil, and Russia in addition to performances at such events as the ESPN X Games and Fun Fun Fun Fest. Immortal Guardian's first full length record is set for release this summer on M-Theory Audio.
