Warlord is a traditional heavy metal / power metal band that formed in 1980. The band put out two albums, one of which is a live album, in the early 80's then went on a hiatus due to inner tensions and the inability to hold on to band members, especially a vocalist.

Warlord has had a metal fans cult following over the years. If you take the time to listen to the debut album, you will understand why. Deliver Us is one of those albums that when you listen to it, you just know it is something special, it has an edge that stands out over other music of its time. Deliver Us is a unique album of what I like to call Epic Metal......nothing else from 1983 was even close to sounding like what Warlord released that year. You will hear classical influences, great musical structures, songs with mood and feeling, and a lot of attention to details.

The next album, which is basically a live album of the Debut with three new songs. The band performed on stage without and audience to film themselves for a VHS release (which was re-released in 2003 on DVD by Metal Blade) .....It is to be noted, that a new vocalist was onboard for this release. I should also tell you that Warlord had not performed live in any venue prior to this albums release.

After a long 18 year hiatus.....the band was back together with another vocalist, Joacim Cans of Hamerfall, and released Rising Out of the Ashes. Rising out of the Ashes contained songs Tsamis had recorded from his band Lordian Guard, a semi-Christian offering.
