The time has come for us to give you our very first full-length album called ‘The Cause
Shipwreck'! We are filled with pride and excitement about how well the songs fit
the album and we can't wait to
share them with you, but first, we are kindly asking for your support.
Who are we?
We are Blackbriar, a Symphonic Gothic Metal band from the Netherlands. After successfully
releasing three EPs ‘Fractured Fairytales', We'd Rather Burn' and ‘Our Mortal Remains',
have chosen to continue the independent route. We would like to take you into our
fantastical gothic world bolstered by addictive hooks, magnificent arrangements, and
beauty. We are working with none other than Joost van den Broek (known for his work with
Epica, After Forever, Xandria, Powerwolf, and many more!) at Sandlane Recording
He's done an incredible job in helping us with the arrangements and the production of
album and reaching our full potential. We have never felt more proud of these new songs
altogether and we can't wait to share them with you, but first, we are kindly asking for
your support. Your support truly means everything to independent artists like ourselves!
