Anarch Fast becoming one of my go-to records. I seek out just a few sub genres of metal, symphonic being one of them and I dont find many that great. Very few hit the mark. This album goes above and beyond my expectations and is the best complete album like it I have heard. I hope they continue with this format. A powerful listen.

simfers Ancient Bards are one of a handful of symphonic metal bands who managed to re-kindle the sense of wonder I felt when I first heard Rhapsody, around 20 years ago. This is their strongest effort to date, full of sweeping orchestrations and soaring vocals without sacrificing the actual metal element. The harsh vocals caught me off-guard but they're used sparingly enough to actually MATTER when they show up and add some interesting texture. Fantastic work. Favorite track: Titanism.

"Origine" is an outstanding statement of epic-symphonic-bombastic music, perfectly balanced between concentrated heavyness and great melodies. 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. The songs are cleanly thought through, exceedingly well played and the listener notices ANCIENT BARDS' enjoyment and conviction of what they do.

Symphonic Epic Power Metal There's just a very thin line between art and kitsch, but there are some innovative bands operating smartly near, but never beyond it. Among those: ANCIENT BARDS, managing that balancing act with ambitious grace. Some say ANCIENT BARDS are somehow like "more sophisticated" ... more
