Ex Libris - "Ann - Chapter 1 - Anne Boleyn" (ep)

Το ep των Ex Libris - "Ann - Chapter 1 - Anne Boleyn"
Το 2003 δημιουργήθηκε στην Ολλανδία ένα συγκρότημα με Ελληνικό όνομα (Erinyen, δηλαδή Ερινύες). Έναν χρόνο αργότερα το "γύρισε" στα Λατινικά (Ex Libris). Μπάντα συμφωνικού metal με οπερετικά φωνητικά. Η αγάπη τους προς τα Ελληνικά φαίνεται κι από τους δύο full length δίσκους που έχουν κυκλοφορήσει. Ο πρώτος τιτλοφορείται "Amygdala" κι ο δεύτερος "Medea". Ο τρίτος φέρει τον τίτλο "Ann" και "βγαίνει" σε... τρεις δόσεις! Αντί για "ολοκληρωμένο" album, τρία EPs (αλά Manowar δηλαδή).

Bio: «Progressive powerhouse Ex Libris entered the world of heavy metal in 2004. Hailing from the Netherlands, a country known for it’s big and diverse female-fronted scene, they stand out as u unique voice within the genre.

Classically trained soprano Dianne van Giersbergen soars and whispers throughout big, bombastic songs that are not only impressive in length, but also in sheer, raw power. There’s ample room for progressive licks, melodies and solo’s next to atmospheric and soothing soundscapes. But make no mistake, they put the pedal to the metal.

Pounding double bass drums, furious riffs and frighteningly intense vocals all combine to make Ex Libris a singular force in the world of female-fronted music. Expect full-on musicianship, epic songwriting, extreme dynamics and the full emotional spectrum from one of the most gifted sopranos in The Netherlands.»
