BLOOMING DISCORD - 1er EP !

<p><a target="_blank" href="https://www.facebook.com/bloomingdiscord/">Blooming Discord</a> is a <strong>hard rock/heavy metal band from Marseille, inspired by the universe of Tim Burton</strong> as well as bands such as <a target="_blank" href="https://www.facebook.com/AvengedSevenfold/">Avenged Sevenfold</a>, <a target="_blank" href="https://www.facebook.com/Metallica/">Metallica</a> and <a target="_blank" href="https://www.facebook.com/ironmaiden/">Iron Maiden</a>. We celebrate our 3 years of existence by releasing the <strong>single/clip "Burn It"</strong> that you already sing along to at each of our shows!</p><p> </p><p><iframe src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FFNGLEA2JKDQ%3Fwmode%3Dopaque&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DFNGLEA2JKDQ&amp;key=cb39d84f05d8439bbe96012f078e02b0&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540" height="304" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p><p> </p><p>Entirely self-produced, this clip gives you a glimpse of what we want to achieve thanks to your unwavering support since our beginnings. The idea is to increasingly deploy our <strong>creativity</strong> through <strong>music, videos, visuals and an ever-improving show</strong> in terms of <strong>musical and stage performance</strong>, including <strong>decors and atmospheres</strong>, to bring out an astonishing <strong>audiovisual performance</strong>!</p><p> </p><p><em><strong>WHY THE NAME BLOOMING DISCORD?</strong></em></p><p> </p><p>The band name comes from a paradox at the heart of the first record, which is a <strong>concept album</strong>. In a few words, the <strong>story we tell throughout the songs</strong> depicts a creature both frightening and fascinating, whose power of creation and destruction, of life and death, conceals the explanation to the post-cataclysmic state of the world in which the plot takes place. Such <strong>character embodies harmony in chaos</strong>, and the <strong>inextricable relationship between life and death</strong>: discordant bloom, or Blooming Discord.</p><p> </p><p><em><strong>SINCE WHEN HAS THE BAND EXISTED?</strong></em></p><p> </p><p>The <strong>idea</strong> of the band goes back to <strong>late 2013</strong>, and its <strong>effective creation</strong> with the complete line-up to <strong>May 2014</strong>. We moved into our <strong>first rehearsal space in late 2014</strong>, and played our <strong>first show in October 2015</strong> at La Rate Penade (Roquevaire, in the inlands of Marseille): things accelerated from that time on!</p><p> </p><p><img alt="16178437_1902172996667877_9042983622715348469_o-1497492782" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/434249/16178437_1902172996667877_9042983622715348469_o-1497492782.jpg"></p><p> </p><p><strong><em>WHICH MUSICIANS, WHAT INSTRUMENTS?</em></strong></p><p> </p><p>We are a <strong>regular heavy metal band of 5</strong> with:</p><p> </p><p>- <strong>a lead singer</strong> who focuses on his vocals and which parts alternate <strong>different types of clean and saturated vocals</strong> on a range and intentions as varied as possible,</p><p> </p><p>- <strong>two guitarists</strong> that often use <strong>two-part harmonies</strong>, among them <strong>one lead guitarist</strong> who is particularly into <strong>convoluted and eccentric pieces</strong>, and <strong>one rhythm guitarist</strong> who gives <strong>special attention to details</strong> and provides almost all <strong>musical arrangements</strong>,</p><p> </p><p>- <strong>a bass player</strong> who uses his very own influences to suggest <strong>unusual melodic lines</strong> for a band of our kind,</p><p> </p><p>- <strong>a blacksmith-drummer</strong>, full of <strong>creativity</strong> whether for his <strong>drum parts</strong> or the <strong>atmosphere</strong> that we seek to immerse the band in, notably through <strong>stage costumes partly manufactured by him</strong>.</p><p> </p><p>We are lucky to have a bass player who <strong>masters and composes on the piano</strong>, and a rhythm guitarist who originally is a <strong>violinist</strong>, which enables us to <strong>vary our ways of composing, considering music and enrich our songs</strong>, in order to actually <strong>tell a story through music and staging</strong>!</p><p> </p><p><strong><em>WHERE TO FIND MORE INFORMATION, PHOTOS, VIDEOS?</em></strong></p><p> </p><p>For those interested, you can check out our <a target="_blank" href="http://www.emergenza.net/FR/fr-fr/news/1648/26091/blooming-discord-interview-finale-marseille.aspx">interview for Emergenza festival</a> (French version only), a springboard during which your enthusiasm brought us all the way to the <strong>regional finals</strong> at <a target="_blank" href="https://www.espace-julien.com/fr/">Espace Julien</a> (4 June 2016) where we <strong>ranked 3rd</strong> with the awards of <strong>best show</strong> and <strong>best guitarist</strong>!</p><p> </p><p><img alt="Espaceju-1496061884" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/428458/espaceju-1496061884.jpg"></p><p> </p><p>You can also find us on our <a target="_blank" href="https://www.facebook.com/bloomingdiscord/">Facebook page</a>, our <a target="_blank" href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsH2QQHBLHmRmSr1yMYo6iw">YouTube channel</a> and our <a target="_blank" href="https://www.instagram.com/bloomingdiscord/">Instagram account</a>!</p><p> </p><p><strong><em>WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?</em></strong></p><p> </p><p>Here is an <strong>indicative calendar</strong> of our ambitions and achievements for the <strong>year to come</strong>:</p><p> </p><p>-<strong>June 2017</strong> = release of the <strong>single/clip "Burn It"</strong>.</p><p> </p><p>-<strong>August/September 2017</strong> = studio <strong>recording</strong> of the <strong>1st EP "Brambles and Bones"</strong> for a release during fall.</p><p> </p><p>-Fall/Winter 2017/2018 = several <strong>shows in preparation</strong>, mainly in the Marseille area.</p><p> </p><p>-First semester 2018 = studio <strong>recording</strong> of the <strong>1st LP "Blooming Discord"</strong>, which will include the songs of EP "Brambles and Bones" with the remaining album songs + surprise bonuses!</p><p> </p><p>-Spring 2018 = objective <strong>mini-tour</strong>!</p>
