ANCIENT BARDS – New video clip “In My Arms”

Ancient Bards, Limb Music and Rockshots Music Management are proud to present the videoclip of “In My Arms”, the first single extracted from “A New Dawn Ending”, the band’s new album, to be released on on April 25th in Europe and Japan and on June 10th in North America.

“In My Arms” is the dejected and resigned inner cry of queen Shena, her aching eyes, now witnessing the awful duel between Daltor and Sendor, are the same that saw her son Surod (Dorus) pass away 16 years ago.

The video was directed by Matteo Ermeti

ANCIENT BARDS finish new album “A New Dawn Ending”

ANCIENT BARDS along with Limb Music and Rockshots Music Management, are proud to present “A New Dawn Ending”.
 
This is the title of the new album of Ancient Bards, containing the third and last chapter of the first part of the Black Crystal Sword Saga, which began with “The Alliance Of The Kings” in 2010 and continued with “Soulless Child” in 2011.
 
Ancient mysteries, entangled schemes, come in succession together with strange revelations, during the long and intense battle this chapter is about, a battle that takes place both inside and outside the charachters. The songs were all recorded at Simone Mularoni’s Domination Studio.
 
“A New Dawn Ending” will be released on April 25th, 2014.
 
Daniele: “For us now it’s a habit and a guarantee to record at Domination Studio, with Simone we studied the best sound for this album, which this time goes beyond our previous productions: the guitars are even more aggressive, the orchestrations and arrangements are more epic than ever, while the choir, which is more present, has a new and more important role. These are the main ingredients of this final chapter of the Saga. The music flawlessly delivers the events of the story, every note fits it perfectly like a tailored suit. With this album we tried to reach a high level of epicness because we want the listeners to enjoy it to the fullest: the choruses are likely to resonate in your head for a long time. The composition are, of course, all enriched by the beautiful, clear and strong voice of Sara, by the engaging solos of Claudio and Martino and accompanied by the uncontrollable machine that is Federico.This can probably be the best chapter of the saga so far.”
 
In addition to all of this, there’s an added value to the album, a very special guest in the track ‘The Last Resort’: Fabio Lione from Rhapsody of Fire, a name that definitely doesn’t need any introduction, duets with Sara in pure magic.
 
Watch the album trailer below:

 
The album contains 10 songs, including 2 suites: one of over 12 minutes, and one of nearly 17 for a total of over 70 minutes.
 
Here’s the tracklist of “A New Dawn Ending”:
 
01 – Before the Storm (1:39)
02 – A Greater Purpose (7:55)
03 – Flaming Heart (6:52)
04 – Across This Life (4:31)
05 – In My Arms (5:25)
06 – The Last Resort (6:06)
07 – Showdown (12:48)
08 – In the End (5:11)
09 – Spiriti Liberi (4:49)
10 – A New Dawn Ending (16:37)
 
The cover artwork will be revealed soon: it was designed by the master Felipe Machado Franco (Blind Guardian, Rhapsody, etc.) and it truly encapsulates the essence of this chapter.
 
Get ready, the Black Crystal Sword Saga pt.1 is coming to an end.

MASTERS OF DISGUISE – Back With A Vengeance

Even though it may seem so at first glance, “Back With A Vengeance” by MASTERS OF DISGUISE is NOT copying the legendary past of Savage Grace, the speed metal legends whose name can still be seen on patches on the jackets of one in three metal fans. No, MASTERS OF DISGUISE fills the musical gap, which Savage Grace left behind them, and they do it brilliantly with incredible self-assurance. “Back With A Vengeance” is a furious firework of speed and power, topped with a decent portion of melodies taking their talents to the musical limits.

 

Tracklisting:
  •  01. Back With A Vengeance / 2:02
  •  02. Never Surrender / 4:41
  •  03. The Omen / 4:10
  •  04. For Now And All Time (Knutson’s Return) / 4:43
  •  05. Scepters Of Deceit / 3:30
  •  06. Alliance / 4:27
  •  07. Sons Of The Doomed / 4:47
  •  08. Liar / 5:14
  •  09. Into The Unknown / 4:10
  •  10. The Templars’ Gold / 5:29

Total playing time 43:05
 
Watch the full disturbing video “For Now And All Time (Knutson’s Return)” down below!
 

 

  • Impressive Speed-/Power Metal debut with cult character.
  • In the musical footsteps of the US Metal legends Savage Grace.
  • New sensational band, formed by established musicians from bands such as Roxxcalibur, Abandoned, Manilla Road and ex-Viron.
  • Extensive live activities to support the album, e.g. Tour with Manilla Road, etc…
