Cân Bardd
Nature Stays Silent

NSP 160 :  Cân Bardd - Nature Stays Silent Digi-CD

Release date CD: March 30th, 2018
Release date DLP: June 21st, 2019

Influenced by bands such as Caladan Brood, Elderwind, Saor and Gallowbraid, Cân Bardd was founded in 2016 as a one-man project by then 18 year old Malo Civelli from Switzerland, with the purpose of creating an outlet for his feelings and ideas that would be at once heavy and aggressive, yet also melodic and atmospheric.

With the help of session drummer Dylan Watson Malo wrote, recorded and mixed his first album with over 70 minutes playing time in less than a year. The final mastering was then done by Mike Lamb from Sojourner, before Malo signed a deal with Northern Silence.

One of the most promising newcomers to appear on the scene in 2017, Cân Bardd is certain to appeal to fans of Caladan Brood, Summoning, Sojourner, Saor or Elderwind, and generally all who enjoy what is commonly known as Epic or Atmospheric and Melodic Black Metal.

The first press of the CD comes as Collector’s Edition in Digipack with 8-page booklet, limited to 1000 copies.

The DLP comes in gatefold cover, on coloured vinyl:

99x turquoise/white splatter
199x turquoise

"There’s a good formula going on here, which I hope will be continued on the next release. I also hope for a little bit of tightening up in the songwriting department. “Nature Stays Silent” is a big album musically, and overall things are held up well. An already-strong castle can be made even stronger by adding reinforcements and a few adjustments."
