The best kept secret in music


It seems that just about every band coming up through the Myspace music scene is a metal band of some sort. There are good bands, decent bands, terrible bands, and then there are bands like Rosenguard. Fortunately for Rosenguard, they’re in an elite group playing with very few worthwhile peers.

The four guys who make up Rosenguard dub themselves as metal/black metal/progressive hearkening themselves to bands like Children of Bodom, Cradle of Filth, and Pantera. You can hear these influences in their music and unlike the millions of other bands who list off these bands as their influences, Rosenguard actually delivers a metal-lovers feast of in-your-face guitars, brutal drumming, and bassplaying that would make Dethklok’s William Murderface proud. In a time that’s starving for good metal, Rosenguard brings the goods redefining everything that makes metal what it is.

Lead singer Nick Rogers manages to make growled vocals and much more melodic singing seem effortless. His vocals cutRosenguard through the mix of his and Tomek Spirak’s guitars, rise above Nenad Lazic’s furious bassline, and Garrettt Scanlan’s monstrous drums.

For those of you who have been lamenting the death of metal in America, check out Rosenguard. They have somehow found a way to take everything that was good about metal and make it even better. They’ve mastered the chunky rhythms that drive much of metal, the lead guitar work that is melodic, moody and incredible, the drums that have you holding your gut in fear that it may very well drop out your ass, and the bass that moves in a dangerous, furious lockstep with all the elements.

They feature three songs from their CD “Requiem for the Innocent” on their Myspace player which are just incredibly solid metal songs. We’re particularly fond of “Bleed the Sky” and “Worlds Away.” And while all three songs showcase just how talented Rosenguard is, you could do much, much worse than checking out their page. - Blog of Sound / Indie Noise


Still working on that hot first release.



In January 2003, the dreams of creating a melodic metal band that would transcend all musical boundaries was realized. Rosenguard began to write a collection of songs which would define human emotion and experience from their point of view. After several demos and one E.P., the band reached a defining moment in the release of it's album, "Requiem For The Innocent", released in 2007.

In 2008 the band reached another milestone in it's career after being asked to join the lineup of the West Coast leg of the "Bound By The Road Tour", featuring Instinct of Agression, Straight Line Stitch, the reunited SNOT, and Devildriver.

Rosenguard's current lineup includes an eclectic mix of musicians from all over the world. Tomek Spirala, a native of Poland, is the band's lead guitarist. On the bass guitar is Nenad Lazic, originally from Serbia. In 2006, vocalist Nick Rogers and drummer Garrett Scanlan (of famed Chicago death metal legends Lividty and Evil Incarnate) were added to the band, further cementing an emerging new style. With this lineup of talented professionals, Rosenguard has already begun making waves throughout the world with it's unique brand of melodic metal!
