Chronicler Of Ardul240626

Step into the dark fantasy symphonic death metal realms of Chronicler of Ardul. Blending ethereal orchestration, thundering metal instrumentation and raw anguished harsh vocals, ‘Durmad, The Ambitious‘ provides the first glimpse into a tale of ambition, forbidden magic, and bloodshed. Chronicler of Ardul’s forthcoming EP, Sword of Virné is set for release on the 16th of August 2024. 

Project leader David Williams comments on the narrative behind the new single: “A man named Durmad is frustrated with his magical education and wants to explore more of what is possible. He experiments, then searches for forbidden tomes of ancient magic, and comes up with a plot to use it, luring kingdoms and empires with the promise of riches to be found on a barren island.”
