Ancient Bards Releases New Music Video

Italian symphonic metal act Ancient Bards released a music video for the new track "In My Arms." The song appears on the upcoming new release "A New Dawn Ending," which is set for release on April 25th via Limb Music.

"In My Arms" is the dejected and resigned inner cry of Queen Shena, as her aching eyes with which she saw her son Surod (Dorus) pass away 16 years ago are tormented once again as she must now bear witness to the anguishing duel between Daltor and Sendor. The video was directed by Matteo Ermeti.

The track list for the album is:

1. Before the Storm
2. A Greater Purpose
3. Flaming Heart
4. Across This Life
5. In My Arms
6. The Last Resort
7. Showdown
8. In the End
9. Spiriti Liberi
10. A New Dawn Ending

Ancient Bards Reveals Album Details

Ancient Bards, along with Limb Music and Rockshots Music Management, are proud to present "A New Dawn Ending," the third and last chapter of the first part of the Black Crystal Sword saga, which began with "The Alliance of the Kings" in 2010 and continued with "Soulless Child" in 2011.

The songs were all recorded at Simone Mularoni’s Domination Studio and "A New Dawn Ending" will be released via Limb Music on April 25th, 2014. The cover artwork was designed by Felipe Machado Franco and will be revealed soon.

Keyboardist Daniele Mazza comments: "For us now it's a habit and a guarantee to record at Domination Studio, with Simone we studied the best sound for this album, which this time goes beyond our previous productions: the guitars are even more aggressive, the orchestrations and arrangements are more epic than ever, while the choir, which is more present, has a new and more important role. These are the main ingredients of this final chapter of the Saga.

"The music flawlessly delivers the events of the story, every note fits it perfectly like a tailored suit. With this album we tried to reach a high level of epicness because we want the listeners to enjoy it to the fullest: the choruses are likely to resonate in your head for a long time. The composition are, of course, all enriched by the beautiful, clear and strong voice of Sara, by the engaging solos of Claudio and Martino and accompanied by the uncontrollable machine that is Federico.This can probably be the best chapter of the saga so far."
