2014, Born in 1972, Boguslaw picked up the guitar at age 16 and over the years he was in several bands based in his home city of Warsaw, Poland. Crylords' formation came about in late 2007 but finding a suitable vocalist in his native homeland proved difficult for Balcerak. For album No. 2, Boguslaw Balcerak has gathered again a real Metal vocal elite around him, especially the well-known singing artists Carsten ´Lizard` Schulz, Rick Altzi and Neo-Classical legends Mark Boals and Göran Edman are particularly worthy of mention. The result is an impressive Neo-Classical Metal masterpiece that shines with fantastic and song matching vocals, the exceptional and stunning guitar work of the master himself, lots of fastidious progressive elements and structures and melodies that will dig into the ear canals. Three years after his much-publicized debut, Boguslaw Balcerak's Crylord are back with their second blast GATES OF VALHALLA and are definitively a real contender for the current Neo-Classical Metal throne.
