‘Dance And Laugh Amongst The Rotten’ by Ardek

Our upcoming album called ‘Dance And Laugh Amongst The Rotten’ is another horror concept album similar to all work we have been releasing so far. On this album, we tell the tale about a girl using an ouija board and through that inviting spirits telling their tales. By the end of the album, after all the tales have been told we learn what happened to the girl and an epic clue is revealed. I won’t go into the details about that because I’d like the listener to find out for themselves. I also made sure the listener is somehow part of the story, a detail that really excites me.

We are a horror metal band rooted in black metal hailing from the Netherlands. We have been releasing concept albums since the beginning of our existence and offer our fans more than just music. During our live shows, we capture the attention of the listener via acting, visual elements and of course pounding epic metal. Through the years we have developed our style into a unique direction. Every album we try to create something new without losing the elements that have come to define us.

Our music is foremost based on storytelling but still brings forth catchy elements and choruses. Fans can really study the stories we put in our albums but for people who are not per se into that, there is a lot of epic metal to enjoy without following a storyline. Our music contains a lot of variation. From pounding blast beats to more epic dramatic parts and everything in between. Guitars and orchestra take turns in taking the lead when it comes to dramatic melodies, verses, and choruses.

Both Seregor and I wrote lyrics for the upcoming album. On every album it is different. Sometimes he does more other times I do. This is a natural process based on who has an idea and is, therefore, most connected to bringing it alive.

Every album we have done has marked significant growth throughout our career. Lammendam (2008) was very important because it was our first full-length album and with that chance to present us to a broader audience.

We are working very hard on preparing everything for the release of our album on June 16th. Fans will be blown away with what has to show. We are also preparing for the summer festivals and there will be tours in the fall. We want to present our new album everywhere around the globe like we have been doing with our previous albums so far. Fans can expect a spectacular horror show!
