Crusade of Bards - 'Vento Aureo' (official video)


Οι Crusade of Bards μας έρχονται από την πρωτεύουσα της Ισπανίας. Δημιουργήθηκαν προ επταετίας (το 2015), χαρακτηρίζουν την μουσική τους πρόταση ως "Symphonic Pirate Metal" και μας συστήνονται κάπως έτσι:

«Crusade of Bards is a symphonic metal band born with the aim of mixing classical and folk sounds with the power and harshness of modern heavy metal, bringing a unique identity to life.»

Το φθινόπωρο του 2019 κυκλοφόρησε το ντεμπούτο τους ("Tales Of Beasts & Bards"), με τον διάδοχό του να φέρει τον τίτλο "Tales of the Seven Seas" και να βρίσκεται ήδη εκεί έξω...

Ο δίσκος των Crusade of Bards 'Tales of the Seven Seas'
Δελτίο τύπου: «With an emotional and energetic live-action production for all kinds of audiences from power to folk, from gothic to pagan, the band has been making a name for themselves with touring and festival performances in Germany, Switzerland, France, and their home country of Spain.

On this second album, Crusade of Bards has a mix of history-inspired songs and social themes. Paolo Andreotti (keyboards & vocals) is the lyricist and he loves history and geography so the whole concept of the record revolves around the 7 seas, 2 songs for every sea, and each of them about stories that took place or refer to the area washed by them.

As you dig deeper into the lyrics, the structure chosen tends to use the same rhetorical figures of romanticism and neo-realism with a strong connection between the sound of a certain word and its meaning. This leads to inner references that may be appreciated by just reading the lyrics, even without the music.

“Tales of the Seven Seas” is the band’s second album inside the “Tales” saga, a broader concept that started with their first album “Tales of Bards & Beasts”. It revolves around the figure of the “Bard” and the different tales, songs, and myths that the storyteller would present to the public of the different towns and villages visited.

While the first album “Tales of Bards & Beasts” was more about myths and legends, “Tales of the Seven Seas” is mainly based on true historical events that have happened in each of them. The concept can be also found in the musical aspects where traditional instruments, scales, or sounds coming from the cultures that live or lived on the shores of the seven mentioned seas are blended into the songs to create the perfect environment for the listener.»

Crusade of Bards (about the album): «With this album, we want to make a statement, we want the fans to really understand who Crusade of Bards is both musically and visually. We want them to open their minds, join us on our journeys through space and time, discover new stories and understand that we, as human beings, have changed very little. Our sins, our mistakes, our victories, and our feelings are not new or undiscovered. They are just there, floating on the ocean, waiting for us to collect them.»

Crusade of Bards (about the song): «The choice of Vento Aureo as one of our singles and for a video clip was pretty simple. This is the song that better defines what Crusade of Bards has grown to be. You get the pure angelical vocals, the deep growls, the big extravaganza of the orchestra, the catchy chorus, and the raise-your-fists moment. The grandeur of Venice and its ability to expand in a time of wars and political fights with class and diplomacy is also a great reflection of the spirit of the band and how we embark on our journey not comparing to others, but rather trying to be our best version possible without boundaries, without limits.»
