about us

Wine Guardian were formed in 2008 by Lorenzo Parigi (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Stefano Capitani (Bass, Backing Vocals) and Davide Sgarbi (Drums, Backing Vocals), with the aim of proposing a powerful mixture of classic heavy metal music.

After the debut EP “Fool’s Paradise” in 2014, the band started a more focused research on their artistic background, taking the trio to explore the sound of other music legends just like Queensr├┐che, Savatage and Fates Warning. The outcome was the first full-lenght “Onirica“, out in 2017.

This new artistic approach increased the interest around the three-pieces combo (especially by specialized media of rock/metal music), taking the trio to be included in the book “Metal Progressive Italiano” by Massimo Salari (published by Arcana Edizioni), mentioned as one of the most interesting Northern Italian prog bands of the latest years.

During the last three years the band went on along a path more and more experimental, coming across the music by contemporary prog masters like Opeth and Porcupine Tree.

On September 2020 the band signs with the italian label Logic IL Logic, part of Burning Minds Music Group, for the release of their new official studio album titled “Timescape“, which came out in 2021 and was welcomed enthusiastically by most of the critique.
