I fell in like with this band on the first listen.   Grin  From Italy, they are quite EPIC and definitely have a place here at ERR.



Biography

The Ancient Bards project takes its origin in the january of 2006 from the mind of the keyboards player Daniele Mazza, whose intent was to create a metal band with epic and symphonic sounds. After the meeting with the bass player Martino Garattoni the project began to materialize. Initially the line up was not stable beacuse of several problems, but in the summer of 2007, after a period of inactivity, the band found it’s final line up with Sara as singer, Claudio as solo guitarist, Fabio as rythm guitarist and Alessandro as drummer.  

The sextet imediately sarted working on the demo ep “Trailer” containing four excerpts of the exciting Black Crystal Sword Saga conceived by Daniele himself that is influenced from fantasy nordic tales and japanese stories like Final Fantasy.

During the realization of the demo, the bards were also busy performing in several Italian live contests from which they gained great results always reaching the first place.  In May 2008 Trailer was finished and was reviewed by many italian webzines and magazines always obtaining high marks.

In the meantime they were noticed by Emiliano Nanni, the president of the promotion and booking agency BRC (Bologna Rock City), that brought them on the stages on many italian live clubs supporting bands such as Turisas, Over The Rainbow, Almah, White Skull, etc. getting loads of success.

In the summer of 2009 the band recorded at Fear Studio in Ravenna it’s first full-length album that merges Sara Squadrani’s vocals with clean choral singalongs and heavy guitar sounds, to create an album teeming with ultra-catchy gems.

Up to now the path of the six bards has led them to sign with Limb Music Products (Rhapsody, Luca Turilli, Pagan’s Mind, Eldritch and many more).

The rest of the Ancient Bards’ adventure is still to be written…

lead vocals - Sara Squadrani
guitars - Fabio Balducci
keyboards - Daniele Mazza
guitars - Claudio Pietronik
bass - Martino Garattoni
drums - Allesandro Carichini

I would say that 99% of the music added, are male-fronted bands.

If I based my music-listening-pleasure on how a person in a band, looks.... I'd probably only have Kamelot in my music library... because alot of those mugs that perform their music for us, won't be winning any beauty contests anytime soon.    

...and, I'm liking this band, more and more and....
