Bio

The music identity of Bard Noir brings together elements from different music genres. Electric Blues, Hard, Psychedelic & Progressive Rock, Swing & Gypsy Jazz, Country & Bluegrass, and even hints of Rembetiko are mixed and instilled into their personal style. Every song is unique regarding texture, orchestration and performance. Groovy rhythm section, punchy riffs, multilayered contrapuntal melodies, daring harmonic choices and unforeseen structural alterations are some of the most distinctive ingredients of their aesthetic perspective. 

 Their subjects matter is inspired from horror fiction literature, with allusions to the works of Stephen King, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Bloch, Bram Stoker et al., as well as folklore tales, myths and superstitions. Many of the archetypal characters of the aforementioned appear in their work, including, among others, Vampires, Ghouls, Ghosts, Werewolves, the Grim Ripper, the Devil. Often, animal personification (rats, snakes et all.) is employed to achieve an allegorical effect. All of the above, combined with gallows humor, intense lyricism, satire, self-mockery, tragicness,  make up a recitative theatrical record. 

Finally, it is worth mentioning that Bard Noir are currently collaborating with artists of various art forms. Two projects are close to fruition: a bilingual poetry collection, comprised of the band's original lyrics along with their renditions in Greek, as well as a fiction novel, with the Bard, the band's mascot, as the main character. The making of a series of animated videos and a comic books, based on the band's material, are also under discussion. 

Now, time to turn off the lights and let this dark, unasked Stranger sing for you. Don't be scared, it's just a bunch of cheap horror stories...
