Norwegian Melodic Metal band NERGARD releases the first pre-listening of their new concept album “Eternal White”, an album that deals with the tragic story of the Carolean Death March in 1718.
The man behind Nergard; Andreas Nergård, shares his thoughts about the pre-listening clip. “This song really defines the new sound of Nergard. We’re aiming for a heavier direction than on the previous releases. I really wanted to go full scale Symphonic Power Metal this time. The song is entitled “”Where no one would shed a tear”” and was written by me and my buddy Andi Kravljaca. It’s a song that tries to capture the horror and chaos of a battle, both musically and lyrically. I think we ended up with quite a hysterical but beautiful Power Metal song.”
Nergard has since the previous album evolved into a steady line-up after being a project that was relying on guest performances. “I came to a crossroad earlier this fall and realised I needed to re-think the whole Nergard-thing. All-star guest projects are popping up in increasing numbers these days and I must admit that I grew a bit tired of that. Don’t get me wrong. I got to work with many of my biggest heroes from the rock/metal scene for which I am forever grateful but I felt the need for a change and to do something different.” The last piece of the puzzle was found just a month ago. By recruiting the British singer Stefani Keogh the line-up was completed. “Stefani has an amazing voice that I’m incredibly happy to have found.” Andreas says. “Her voice represents diversity and fits perfectly into the ever-changing atmospheres of my music.”
Nergard’s upcoming album “Eternal White” will see its release in 2021 and is being mixed at this very moment. To fund the last bits of the production the band has launched a crowdfunding campaign where the new album can be pre-ordered.
