Gabriel had the experience of a lifetime earlier this week as he got to attend IRON MAIDEN's in southern California in addition to meeting some of the band back stage after the show! Below is Gabriel's post about the event :) UP THE IRONS!!!
"Saturday night was a dream come true! Not only was I blessed with a backstage pass to IRON MAIDEN, I got to meet Adrian Smith and he recognized me from my “Trooper” cover video!!! 🎸🎹😆
When one of your idols says you’re “very talented... and great guitar work.” You’re knees start doing this weird twitchy thing, and you start sweating a lot. 😂
On September 11, 2019 Immortal Guardian announced their parting ways with founding member, drummer, Cody Gilliland. After an extensive online search and several auditions Immortal Guardian has found their new member in the talented Canada based drummer, Justin Piedimonte. A native of Montreal, Piedimonte has been performing in metal projects for over a decade and brings a fresh new sound to the rhythm section of Immortal Guardian.
In order to put any doubts to rest from those questioning his abilities to pull off Gilliland's parts, Justin filmed this impressive play through of Immortal Guardian’s single “Zephon” off of...
It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the departure of one of our founding members, drummer/backing vocalist, Cody Gilliland...
His work with Immortal Guardian over the past 10 years will always be a big part of the bands history and we’ll forever hold on to the good times we shared. He definitely left some big shoes to fill and his work will forever be "immortalized" in the music we made together, Super Metal: Edition Z, Revolution Part I, and Age of Revolution. We wish Cody the best in his future endeavors and thank him for all his contributions and dedication to the band over the years. Here's to our paths crossing...
This is going to be a fun one. We’re basically gonna be playing metal, hanging with friends / fans, and playing video games for 2 months straight! Big thanks to Powerglove and our agent for bringing us on for this tour. Mark your calendars and get ready for a show that will melt your face and take you back to the good ol days of sitting on the couch and playing your Atari / NES / SEGA / N64 / XBOX / Playstation, whatever generation you came from. See you on the road Guardians!
Check out some footage of Gabriel performing with PowerGlove on tour last year when he filled in on guitar duties for them.

What an insane experience it was during the making of Stardust. Us as a band were involved for about a week’s worth of shooting but our director and producer Andrew Gonzales and Brett Rivera collectively worked hundreds of hours to make this thing come together. Our crew was amazing and we can’t thank everyone enough for believing in this project enough to donate so much of their time and talents. We could talk all day about the amazing journey it was and hopefully one day we’ll have an official “Behind the Scenes - Making of Stardust” video, but for the time being here are some amazing still images from our great frien...
