Ainur are back after 7 years from their latest album.
And they’re back with a colossal project.
The big goal of the Progressive Rock Orchestra from Turin (Italy) is called WARS OF BELERIAND: they will turn into Music all the most important Wars of Beleriand starting from the “WAR OF THE JEWELS”.
The album is dedicated to Fëanor, to the creation of the Silmarils and to the Wars originated by all that. “WAR OF THE JEWELS” is only the first step of a bigger project!
WAR OF THE JEWELS will be produced and distributed by Ainur’s new label Rockshots Records,and will be a little bit different from the previous albums: Rockshots Records is a heavier label and the topic of the album is darker. For that reasons the new record will be harder and more combative.
You will find the Concept as usual, because the main goal of the band since the beginning is to follow all Silmarillion’s tales (and all J.R.R.Tolkien’s writings) and put them into Music.
You will find the Progressive, because Ainur think that turning a tale from a a specific art (Literature) into another (Music, in this case) is really hard, and you must use all the tools you have. Progressive Music has always had the flexibility and the big chance to explore and create.
You will find the Rock, because Progressive is not enough to talk about Wars and Battles: you need swords and shields. And if you’re making Music, “swords and shields” means Rock.
Finally you will find the Orchestra, because since a long time Ainur is made up of 12 members (classical instruments plus rock elements and 4 lead singers), as well as a Poetess who takes care of the drafts and the writings of the original lyrics.
A band Line-Up almost unknown for Italy and the World!
