Lloyd Wilson is lead guitarist of Orestea, a 4 piece, melodic metal band from Guildford, Surrey.
Despite only forming at the end of 2008, Orestea have had a tremendously successful first few years together after self releasing their debut E.P ‘Shadows Of Yesterday’ and also playing some prestigious gig slots, including sets at both Download and Bloodstock festival.
Their first album “Love Lines and Blood Ties was released in October 2011 and the ensuing success resulted in a highly subscribed UK-wide headline tour supported by fellow Surrey metallers Black Iris.
Lloyd exclusively used a number of Sabre Guitars to record every guitar part in Orestea’s latest EP ‘This is an Overture’ which will be released in September 2012.
His Signature Wraith LW-103s featuring a chambered mahogany body with artist grade flame maple top finished in Absinthe green burst, cosmo black Schaller Hannes Bridge and Signature Lloyd Wilson inlay at the 12th fret was released in August 2012.
The LW-103 Signature was designed to be a melodic metal monster. She's kitted out with a pair of Raw Nickel Bare Knuckle Painkillers, LSR Roller nut and the revolutionary Schaller Hannes Bridge loaded into a chambered Honduras mahogany and curly maple body. The macassar ebony fretboard features Lloyd's signature inlay at the 12th Fret and the guitar is finished with a satin lacquer on the back of the body, Full Gloss top in Absynthe Green burst with faux binding and a three piece maple and walnut neck finished in our signature satin oil/wax.
