Dario’s new record is a powerful show of songwriting infused with shred guitar, vintage modern influence, and a richly musical band consisting of long time musical partner Dan DC Conway (Drums), fellow Black Label Society band mates John JD DeServio (Bass) and Jeff Fabb (Drums), former Lizzy Borden band mate Marten Andersson (Bass), and features a song with guitarist Phil Campbell (Motorhead/Phil Campbell and The Bastard Sons). Engineered and mixed by Fred Archambault, known for his work with Alice Cooper and Avenged Sevenfold, among others. This record is a sheer embodiment of this high caliber guitarists vast skill set.
“Death Grip Tribulations makes it clear that Dario Lorina has become a force to be reckoned with, as at twenty seven years of age he draws from experience far beyond his years, creating a collection of songs built on forceful rhythms, strong melodies and an arsenal of advanced guitar chops.” -Mike Varney, Shrapnel Label Group

“This record will encapsulate the progression of my playing and newer influences…” ~Dario Lorina
Black Label Society guitarist, Dario Lorina began his professional career at age 16 as the touring guitarist with ex-Warrant lead singer Jani Lane. At age 19, Dario joined veteran metal act Lizzy Borden with whom he played for four years.
In September of 2013, his critically acclaimed debut solo record for Shrapnel Records was released.
On January 1st, 2014, Dario became the newest member of Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society and has been touring consistently throughout the USA, Canada, South America, Europe, Russia, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand since. Dario has his own signature model with LAG guitars called “The Arkanator” which is a hybrid of their Imperator and Arkane models. Dario is entering Studio 5A in Valencia California later this month with engineer/producer Fred Archambault, known for his work with Alice Cooper and Avenged Sevenfold, among others, to begin recording.
Regarding his new record Dario said, “I'm always learning as a guitar player and taking influence as a musician and artist. This record will encapsulate the progression of my playing and newer influences while maintaining the core stylistic traits of my first record”.
In February 2016, Dario will be playing on the Axes and Anchors Cruise along with Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Schenker, and other top rock guitarists, performing acoustically with Zakk, giving clinics and playing songs from his first Shrapnel Records solo record.
"Dario Lorina is a rare breed among new guitar heroes today, who has deep roots in 70's and 80's metal icons such as Van Halen, Lynch, Rhoads and Gilbert, despite having been born after his idols had already made their mark on the Guitar World." ~Mike Varney / Shrapnel Records Group
