OverlorD has always had a genuine respect and love for the music that they grew up listening to, and have never been ashamed of filtering those influences into their music.

Biography

For almost 7 years the members of OverlorD have been knocking down doors, and playing for anyone willing to listen. To quote a writer in What's Happening Daytona Magazine, "I've never seen a band more intense about not only playing their music to perfection every time they perform, but making sure that every single person in the audience leaves the place satisfied". That quote describes this band to a T.

OverlorD is Mike "Toast" Rose on guitar and lead/backing vocals, Bruce Jones on bass guitar and lead/backing vocals, Dave Girrbach on lead guitar and Wayne Thomas on drums. The band has seen a few lineup changes, but with the addition of Wayne "Drumzilla" Thomas in the winter of 2006, the band has finalized their lineup, and know that they have exactly what they need to put their music out to the masses.

OverlorD has been a staple at the clubs and bars of Central Florida for all of these years, and have always done so with a definitive goal in mind: Get the music out to the people that NEED to hear it. These are not musicians that are willing to rest on past accomplishments. The band is always striving to reach as many listeners as possible, and plan to continue that trend in 2007.

In fact, as we embark on 2007, the band is gearing up for what should prove to be the year of the OverlorD coming out party. They are currently spending most of their time in the studio, working on their upcoming release, "Pointing Out The Obvious", (working title) and are not cutting corners at any phase of the recording process. The band has retained the services of legendary musician and producer Ronnie Montrose to guide them in the studio for the upcoming album. This release promises to be some of the most groundbreaking work to date for Overlord.

2007 will see the band perform in new markets all over America and possibly the World. The band will, (of course,) be a big part of the annual Bike Week and Biketoberfest celebrations in the Central Florida area, and have dates already scheduled for early March.

OverlorD
Masters of Old School Metal
2006-07-28 Article Written by: Dan Lang

Over the past year or so there has been a great infusion of bands trying to get back to the 1980s metal sound. One band, which started producing the sound in 1999, has been holding the standard quite higher than the others. That band is OverlorD.

OverlorD was formed by Dave Colucci (former Drummer) and Mike Toast Rose (Guitar and Lead Vocals). The two compiled a long list of original songs and went shopping for band members. Colucci and Rose added Bruce Jones (Bass Guitar) and Lead Guitarist Dave Girrbach. The OverlorD arsenal was complete. When sked about the bands name, Bassist Bruce Jones says that Operation Overlord was a mission carried out by the U.S. Military back in World War II, and it just sounded cool to them. The name has produced the slogan, Overlord has always been synonymous with kicking ass!

With the full unit in place, the band tirelessly played around the Orlando area and came to the Daytona Beach area for Bike Week, Speed Weeks, and Biketoberfest events. The band was always a perfect fit for the Biker Type due to the old school brand of music they played. OverlorD has always had a genuine respect and love for the music that they grew up listening to, and have never been ashamed of filtering those influences into their music. The bands motto has always been If we dont love it We dont play it. To this day the band still pays tribute to some of their favorite bands by covering their music during a show.

During the bands seven-year history, they have shared the stage with some pretty heavy hitters. The list includes names like Foghat, Blue Oyster Cult, Static X, Drowning Pool, 40 Below Summer, Rob Rock and so many more. In September of 2004, the band was invited to play what in their minds, was their biggest show to date. OverlorD was put on a bill with the previously mentioned Static X, Drowning Pool and Damageplan for a show at Orlandos Lee Vista Center. The show was sponsored by Musicom Media and expectations were high for all involved. Unfortunately, this show took place at a time when Central Florida was healing from the affects of several hurricanes that hit the area, so the crowd turnout was drastically affected. Not to be sold short, this turned out to be a great experience for the band, and a great show for the fans in attendance.

These days OverlorD tells me that they are looking at the Big Picture in regards to where they perform and where they sell their product. The band has been approached by some pretty big name people in the business in regards to
