Saint Deamon was founded in 2006 by former Dionysus drummer Ronny Millianovicz and music mastermind/singer Tobias Lundgren. They were soon joined by equal mastermind/multi-instrumentalist/guitarists Ragnar Widerberg (Witherscape) and Toya Johansson. One year later, Tobias and Ragnar stepped down and the line-up was completed with singer Jan Thore Grefstad (ex-Highland Glory), and bass player Nobby Noberg (ex-Nation, Dionysus). The band signed a worldwide deal with Frontiers Records that same year, which resulted in two albums, “In Shadows Lost From The Brave” (2008) and “Pandeamonium” (2009). Extensive live appearances followed, with gigs all the way from North Cap down through Europe, crowned with a memorable appearance at the prestigious ProgPower USA Festival in Atlanta. In early 2011 Ronny decided to part ways with the band. At record time, Oscar Nilsson (Engel) prepared and nailed the setlist for the rest of the 2011 gigs. Little did the band know the “yet to come” importance in the choice of successor for the job… Oscar remained in the band until 2015 when he was forced to prioritize his work with Engel and the growing work with his Crehate Studios. Oscar was relieved on the drums by Jarle Byberg (Urgehal), who brought new fresh energy to the band, and the work on the third Saint Deamon album “Ghost” commenced, in close cooperation with “guess who” - Oscar Nilsson at Crehate Studios.

10 years after the “Pandeamonium” release Saint Deamon connected with old friend Timo Hoffman and signed with his new label Ram It Down Records. The 74 min mastodont album “Ghost” was finally presented to the world in 2019. The live work following the release had just begun, with a fantastic tour support for Geoff Tate through Norway and Finland, when the pandemic struck the world… After the last show in Finland, Jarle decided to leave the band. By a struck of fortune once again, the band crossed paths with yet a fantastic new drummer and friend – Alfred Fridhagen (Waymaker, Gaia Epicus). During the pandemic years, Saint Deamon did use the time creatively and well. Finishing up 2022 with new signing with AFM Records - physical re-issues of both “In Shadows Lost From The Brave” and “Pandeamonium“ to follow + a new killer album on the way - the band is stronger than ever!
