Ancient Bards Crowdfunding Campaign

The Black Crystal Sword Saga continues, join the Knighthood!
Ancient Bards, symphonic metallers from Italy, are launching a Crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for the release of their fourth album.

Join us on this epic adventure, join the Knighthood here.

“We’re psyched to announce that we’re launching a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for the release of our fourth album. We’re set out to raise 17.000€ as a first goal to finish the recordings and the promotion of what it’s going to be our most ambitious project so far.

We’ve been silent for almost two years, because of some issues we encountered on our way. Even during our most difficult time, our fans never stopped showing their support so we want to properly repay them, and to do so we can’t come out with less than a great album. We decided to run a crowdfunding campaign because we want to release the album in the best possible way, with the finest package ever, amazing videos and more killer goodies: we do it for ourselves and for our fans, but we lack the resources to make the step forward we dreamed of.

Through this campaign we are releasing an exclusive Deluxe Edition which will be available only for our backers, it won’t be found in any store after the campaign is ended. The Deluxe Edition consists in a double feature Digipak: one CD with the regular album version, one CD with Sara singing over an especially re-arranged orchestral version that lets the symphonic elements of our music stand out.

We also want to build a community where like-minded people can get together, talk about music and feel part of something special, knowing they helped us realize our vision and share our art with the world. This is the purpose of what we call the Ancient Bards Knighthood, the Order of our most loyal fans. Every one of our backers will be dubbed Sir or Lady of the Ancient Bards.

Our first three releases (The Alliance Of The Kings – 2010, Soulless Child – 2011, A New Dawn Ending – 2014) together make up Part 1 of The Black Crystal Sword Saga. We left our fans in a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of our latest album, so we are happy to be able to share more of the story now. We think people are gonna be surprised by this new chapter, the beginning of Part 2!”

The Crowdfunding already started July 2nd and will continue until August 12th.

MINOTAURUS and eHrlebnisfilm have teamed up once again to bring you the successor of their last effort “Erlkönig”. This time they chose the track “Cemetery” from the last album Insolubilis and the video surely takes you back to medieval (or rather evil?) times.
