MYRIAD LIGHTS is one of the most promising reality in the Italian underground Heavy Metal scenario.
The band was founded in 2006 in Gorgonzola, Milan, Italy by the 17-year-old guitarist Francesco Lombardo, who wanted to combine the classic Heavy Metal sound with more power and modern influences.
After some lineup changes the band found stability in late 2010, besides Francesco on guitar, with Andrea Di Stefano on vocals, Giuseppe Lombardo (FOGALORD) on bass and the youngest Filippo Motta (16) on drums.
Throughout 2011 Myriad Lights recorded their debut album "Mark of Vengeance" at SFSoundDesign studio (Albignano, Milan, Italy) owned by Simone Fiorino, released worldwide in June 2012 by Italian label Underground Symphony. Mark of Vengeance is a really simple and immediate album, based on the 80s classic heavy metal sound and recorded with nothing more than the instruments that you can hear in a Myriad Lights’ live act: just guitar, bass and drums.
After the release of the debut album, during 2012-2013 Myriad Lights has performed in many live gigs and festivals, touring Italy and a little abroad, sharing the stage with Luca Turilli's Rhapsody, Firewind, Fatal Smile, Theocracy, Sleeping Romance, and many others.
Mark of Vengeance also made an important appearance in the historical “BURRN!” magazine (Japan) in the import album charts at the 33rd position in January 2013.
In 2015 Myriad Lights entered the SundOwner Studio of Marco Zanibelli in Arluno (MI), Italy, and recorded a new chapter. The 2nd album is more metal and aggressive. You can hear a new and regenerated style, with much more keyboards and also some orchestra arrangements played by the aforementioned session member Marco Zanibelli.
After recording the new album, drummer Filippo left the band for personal reasons. Myriad Lights welcomes the new drummer Simone Sgarella (ex FUROR GALLICO). Also the band added to the lineup an important refreshment with Lele Mr Triton on keyboards (ex HIGHLORD).
The new album "Kingdom of Sand" is released in August 2016 by Italian label Punishment 18 Records.
