Short Bio: Two-Piece power metal outfit, Galladorn, is looking to set the tone with their first original single, “The Cauldron Born”. Inspired by author Lloyd Alexander’s “The Chronicles of Prydain” fantasy series, the song weaves a tale about a powerful necromancer and his desire to create an undead army. Featuring relentless drumming, blistering guitar work, and soaring vocal acrobatics, this thrashing, haunted track sets the foundation for Galladorn’s unique sound within the power metal spectrum.
Formed in 2020, Galladorn is a two-piece power metal band comprised of U.S. multi-instrumentalist Chris Johansson and U.K. vocalist Craig Cairns. Following their renditions of Hammerfall’s “The Dragon Lies Bleeding” and Iced Earth’s “Dark Saga” the group has subsequently become known for their extremely accurate and high-quality covers. Dispelling any notion, the band is purely a cover act, Galladorn has their sights set on an April 29th release date for their first original single, “The Cauldron Born”.
