Purging Sin We are a heavy metal band that brings back the old school sound. No images or gimmicks.

Randy Loader is a guitarist and songwriter. I write both instrumentals and songs from hard rock to metal and everything in between. I have a few different collaboration projects going where I write and perform all the music and send it to singers for lyrics and vocals. I sing on some of my own songs as well.

Randy Loader and Renita Zantel Ranz and Renita started their collaboration Feb 2023 and it quickly turned into a realization that they had to release their first album together.
Their first album will be 12 tracks. Randy ~Ranz~ Lodder
Through the years…. Ranz worked his way through many bands and genres of music as a lead guitarist. He was creating and playing in original Seattle Hard Rock bands: Dagger, Project Gunhead, Distant Thunder, and Balance.
Ranz was one of the primary songwriters. He was one of the first ones in the Seattle music scene to use 7 string guitars. After moving to El Paso, TX he teamed up with an Austin TX country music veteran George Ransom and formed the Hard Rock/Country original band Ransom. Their first demo sparked major label interest. From there…. over the years, he has written and recorded multi-genre original songs and instrumentals, enough to produce a couple of albums.
Ranz recently found a new passion in audio production, mixing, and mastering. Ranz is working tirelessly to bring his combined new passions, Renzita, and production, to fruition.
