Thread: The ARDA band

  1. #26
    Been waiting for a good "heavy-metal" from "ARDA"?!

    As the saying goes, "You want heavy-metal?! We have them!"

    It's time to clean up the dust musical instruments and perform the spring metal! \m/

    At the 29th of March will be a performance of "ARDA" at one of the our most favorite events "Bird and Baby Yard party"!

    The concert will take place at "Bird And Baby" inn in Shire on the Laurelin server.

    On this wonderful and honorable event, we will present typical for "Arda" styles - hard rock and heavy metal, with a small number of folk-rock, suitable for the cute hobbit environment.

    The common leitmotif for this performance and the construction of the setlist was the legendary composition of an old rock band, Uriah Heep "Easy Livin'" - https://soundcloud.com/user-68463208...sy-livin-lotro

    The concert will be remembered by several facts. First, a few songs will be played with the use of fiddle, we first performed with it, we will try to curb the rebellious strings of this fiddle!

    The second and the biggest surprise - this time, "Arda" will play with one star that will try on the image of a brutal adept of heavy-metal!
    "ARDA" will play together with sweet and legendary lady ACORNE OAKLEY!

    Release the Kraken of your soul! \m/

    The performance promises to be very unusual and interesting.

    The program will feature mostly new songs, with a small number of time-tested songs, the new tunes will feature several powerful songs from a future tribute to the "KIPELOV" band as well as songs of Nazareth, Deep Purple, Dragonforce, Iron Maiden, Korpiklaani, and other wonderful bands.

    Let's Rock the Shire together! \m/

    PS. Many thanks to the dear Toadflax for the invitation, poster and wonderful announcements on lotroartists.com, brambleburygazette.com, http://laurelinarchives.org/node/34571

    Hear... Somewhere in the distance can heard the clatter of hoofs, a thousand times intensified by "wild wind" which replaced the "Calm". ...The blood-drenched horizon... and echo carries the wind ringing gallop of mighty guitar horses, announcing the beginning of the concert, dedicated to the work of "fathers" of the Russian heavy-metal - Aria and Kipelov!

    ...And the crazy horses would race
    across the agony of the burnt-out grass...

    ...Time to attack and to win!...

    The concert will be dedicated mainly to Aria and Kipelov, with a bonus in the form of some wonderful songs of "Cruise" and "Black Obelisk"!
    This concert is planned primarily for the Russian-speaking audience and, although it will be more relevant and interesting for her, mostly of songs will be performed both in Russian and in English, specially for our foreign friends.

    Hurry up to see, the performance will be unique in the setlist, never before at a real concert (and even at announced in the game concert!) there was no such amazing combination of songs, this performance will be timed to the 33rd anniversary of "Aria" and to the recent release of the 13th album of this iconic band!

    The concert will present the synergy of true freedom and rebelliousness of Slavic spirit!


    The journey through the masterpiece compositions, the real places of glory, filled with the courage of the heroes of asphalt and the bravery of the ancient Russian warriors will be held on November 25 at 1pm servertime!
    Venue - Brandywine, Bree festival grounds stage

    I want to express my gratitude to The Hope and personally to Charnothorin for the great idea and for inviting us to this powerful concert dedicated to this significant for Russia bands, it is a honor for "Arda" to play with such experienced musicians!

    A special thank you for the gorgeous poster, when you look at that, involuntarily recall the lines of song - "The wind braided our horses' manes, we galloped further, burning out fields"

    Put off all your business, grab your friends, leather jackets and a good ale, "Let's give the heat" because "The hour has come" of the real metal! \m/

    It was very cool and honorable to take part in the tribute in honor of the legends of Russian rock, iconic Russian bands, which have become for many native and unforgettable, many have memorable stories and memories associated with certain compositions, and that is amazing, because every line of their songs are filled with pure energy and many - with hidden meaning! In short, Aria and Kipelov - Forever! \m/

    ...We drove on the roads... Together with a wonderful audience, we celebrated the release of Aria's new album and their 33rd anniversary!
    Despite some lags, everything was at the highest level, the audience enjoyed the canonical metal with us!

    It was very cool that there was many grand listeners!

    Thanks to our musicians - Sinffi, Bolludagur and Sprengidagur, thanks to The Hope and Maestro Charnotorin for the invitation, it was very honorable and great, a new experience of a grand together concert with another wonderful band, and it was a big success!

    Songs sounded great, some compositions was with unusual and nice arrangements, and it was entertaining to see the couple of dancing high-elves by song "I'm free"!

    All songs on this concert was created by Maestro Charnotorin, thank him for the wonderful variations of legendary songs!

    The setlist was very unusual, such combination of songs of Aria and Kipelov on a real concert I've never seen!
