ANCIENT BARDS – Origine (The Black Crystal Sword Saga Part 2)

The Italian Bombastic/Symphonic Power Metal band around the strongly-voiced front lady Sara Squadrani always went its own way, but they really go to town on their fourth album “Origine (The Black Crystal Sword Saga Part 2)”. Their symphonic/epic Metal is cleanly thought through, exceedingly well played and the listener notices ANCIENT BARDS’ enjoyment and conviction of what they do.

With “Origine”, ANCIENT BARDS once again presents an album which not only shows the rademarks of the band, but one which has all the feelings of a cinema soundtrack. Once again they have taken a step forward with their epic influences, strengthened the orchestral parts and combined it with racing guitars to a distinctive mixture. Sara’s voice tops off the tracks with all her vocal diversity. The quality of vocalist Sara’s ability had, by now, reached Holland and Arjen Anthony Lucassen invited her, alongside a star-studded guestlist, to participate on his album “The Theory Of Everything”.

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.
