Video Album Trailer
DRAGONY announce MASTERS OF THE MULTIVERSE
We are thrilled to announce that DRAGONY return with their third full-length album in the fall of 2018 after the great success of their sophomore outing “Shadowplay” and the Anniversary EP “Lords Of The Hunt”!
The new album entitled MASTERS OF THE MULTIVERSE will feature 10 brand new Epic Glory Metal tracks, as well as a bonus track on the physical CD release, inspired by the universes of many different beloved pop culture phenomena, ranging from fantasy literature over computer and video games to Anime, movies and TV.
The band states: “This album is a tribute to the heroes of our childhood and teenage days who inspired and entertained us throughout the years, and we can’t wait to share these new songs with you. We would particularly like to thank the contributors to our crowdfunding campaign last year – it is in no small part thanks to you that this album is possible.”
Guest appearances on the album include Tommy Johansson from Sabaton and ReinXeed, Ross Thompson from Van Canto, Nora Bendzko from Nightmarcher and Avem as well as Lukas Knoebl from Illuminata, who has once again provided some amazing orchestration after completing his studies in film scoring at the University of Southern California in L.A.!
The fantastic artwork was created by the amazing Dušan Markovic from Serbia, who was also responsible for the artwork to “Lords Of The Hunt”.
MASTERS OF THE MULTIVERSE will be released in Europe on 12. October 2018. Pre-sale will start on 14. September 2018.

Ancient Bards – crowdfunding campaign success
Ancient Bards, symphonic metallers from Italy, launched a Crowdfunding campaign for the release of their fourth album “ORIGINE – The Black Crystal Sword Saga Part 2” on Monday July 2nd and they met their goal in three days.
“The support we received from the very beginning of the campaign is so incredible we’re speechless. We knew we had many loyal fans ready to back us, but we would have never dreamed for them to be this generous and trusting. We’re extremely grateful!
Our first goal was set on 17.000€ and we reached 100% of the funding in 79 hours. The sum, after all the fees, is going to cover the recordings and the promotion of what it’s going to be our most ambitious project so far.
This gratifying success has the potential of becoming even bigger, because the campaign will be live until August 12th and we set some stretch goals that would allow us get even closer to our true vision. Our next targets are: 20.000€ (which would get us the funds to make a second video clip), 25.000€ (which would unlock the video “Live from Willemeen”), and 30.000€ (which would unlock the video “Live from Wacken Open Air”).
The album is called “ORIGINE – The Black Crystal Sword Saga Part 2” and, through this campaign, we are releasing an exclusive Deluxe Edition of it that will be available only for our backers.

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.
