Dario Lorina Debut Solo Album Hits The Streets Via Shrapnel Records!

Congrats to Dario for this awesome achievement.

For anyone keeping score Metal Sludge has shown some love to Dario for years. We did a feature 20 Questions with Dario back in may 2009.  We even rocked him in our eXposed section when he was a kid. Oh wait, he kinda still is, but we mean, like a grade schooler.  Anyway, Dario has done some good things in his young life thus far and we hope he continues on this path!

Enough of our babble, check out the press release below about Dario’s debut solo release!



Dario Lorina Debut Album set to Release on Shrapnel Records on September 10th

Touring for over a span of seven years since age sixteen, first with late Warrant singer Jani Lane and in more recent years with Lizzy Borden, metal guitar virtuoso Dario Lorina delivers his first solo recording. Growing up listening to guitarists such as Randy Rhoads, Paul Gilbert, George Lynch and Van Halen, Dario’s music harkens back to the glory days of high caliber shred guitar, the genre of which Shrapnel Records was a founding force.

Dario Lorina’s debut solo CD reveals a guitarist brimming with extreme musical ability. This guitarist brings more diverse influences into play than the average neo-classical riff monger. While technically proficient like all of the label’s guitar instrumentalists, Dario’s CD isn’t just about shredding. It’s an American guitar instrumental album having more in common with riffs reminiscent of Paul Gilbert, George Lynch and Van Halen than the European influence of guitarists such as Yngwie Malmsteen.

Dario’s debut CD is a powerful all-instrumental CD drenched in attitude-filled guitar work, backed by a thundering hard rock rhythm section.
