Originally formed in 2015, Ardours was the product of Mariangela and Kris’ longstanding friendship from both of their involvements in the Sardinian (Italian) metal scene. In 2006, Mariangela moved from Italy and joined the Norwegian band Tristania, but her and Kris always kept in touch. In late 2015, having always admired one another’s musical talents, they decided to join forces. Hard work and dedication have been the key for their upcoming debut album “Last Place on Earth”, which is due out later this year.
Since Mariangela wanted Ardours to be a melting pot of different personalities to add to the unique flavor of the songwriting, she decided to ask to Tristania’s drummer/lyricist Tarald Lie to write the lyrics and record the drums for the album.The mix of these three elements has resulted in a fresh and promising style, straddling the lines between rock, metal, and goth. The gothic atmosphere created in the mesh of the lyrics and the catchy melodies immediately caught the attention of Frontiers A&R team, who snapped up the band as soon as they heard the music.
Fans of The Gathering, Lacuna Coil, latter-era Tiamat, Idle Hands, and the like should keep their ears open for Ardours.
The band have announced their first live show will happen on September 7, 2019 at La Cueva Rock in Quartucciu (Cagliari) Italy. Follow the band’s social media for info about tickets and further details.
