Where the hell is Ancient Bards?
It’s been quite some time. Ancient Bards played their last show almost 1 year ago, on November 26th, and then kinda vanished. What happened?
Well, life happened.
I’m not going to tell you in detail what happened to each of us, ‘cause I’m not writing this to complain or to raise anyone’s compassion, this is just an overdue update. You know how it is: music can’t be our main focus, we have to put our actual jobs, our families, and our health first.
We’ve worked hard for 10 years, putting every dime and every drop of spare time we had in this project: Ancient Bards slowly grew more and more and right in the moment our career needed that extra push to try to take flight, we found ourselves without resources. We kinda reached the highest peak of our career – so far – in the exact moment things in our personal life started to fall apart. Some of us had a lot on their plate and needed to turn their attention to what was more urgent.
However we were aware it was just a phase and, although we didn’t know how long it would last, we kept on working on Ancient Bards in any way we could, writing stuff whenever the gift of time met the gift of inspiration.
Let me just say we are overwhelmed by all the messages we receive from people asking when the new album will be out. Your eagerness for new stuff is awesome and makes us so proud! Thank you so much!
We always answer to those messages with “the new album is in the making!” and it is the absolute truth: it’s taking time, but it’s coming and it’s going to sound great!
We’re all ok now and back on track. We want to reward your patience by giving you the best of us, an album that is worth the wait. So bear with us and we’re all going to see the light!
You’ll be hearing from Ancient Bards soon, we can’t wait!

That’s good to know, Sara. Thanks for giving some clearance.
Hey Sara, great to hear you’re all doing ok again, obviously we worry if there is radio silence for such a long time, especially when you all support fans (like me) during health problems etc. Cannot wait for the new album and even more seeing you all well and happy on stage. Huge support bear hug, Marcel.
How are you now Marcel?
Well, I will have to get to the routine check in the next couple of weeks, but the specialist ministering me, already told me last time to consider myself as healed 🙂 minor physical changes that does NOT matter in mowing lawns of Belgian mansions, sticking together the roof of Belgian cottages, but major influence on withdrawal symptoms in view of Ancient Bards gigs ;-p Thanks for asking, you’re really a sweetheart. Say, are you still involved in the architect field, after getting your degree, or more concentrating on the musical carrier? Hugs Marcel
Glad to hear about you all. You’ve basically been my entry door into Symphonic Metal, so you’re a bit special to me 😉 Take you time and build something great that you love and that we’ll love too 😀
Tour entry door to symphonic metal, That’s awesome!!!
Very excited to read this. Your goice is by far my favorite voice in Power Metal, and I love all of the Ancient Bards albums from front to back. I sincerely hope that you all find balance and harmony in your lives, and look forward to new music when you are ready to share it!
I wish all of you the very best and I cannot wait to hear what you have been creating. Everything that you all have done has been wonderful. I still keep my autographed CD jacket from you guys in my safety deposit box at my bank. 😀
We can’t wait too! <3
Support you anyway!
