The Mars Chronicles European Tour 2013 Donation Campaign


European Tour 2013






THE MARS CHRONICLES is an Alternative/Post Metal band from France formed in January 2012.


Former guitarist, vocalist and composer Devy Diadema, from progressive rock band Opram recruited guitarist Yann Morvant (Lag I Run), bassist Sebastien Ollive (Opram) and drummer Morgan Berthet (Myrath, Frontal, Eyeless, Eths) to reach the perfect equation.

The band created a massive yet atmospheric metal influenced by alternative rock, progressive rock/metal, technical death metal and groove metal. The music varies from complex and aggressive rhythmic to totally epic passages lead by intense melodic vocals.



After the release of the first song "Constant Show" on YouTube (38000 views), the first EP "The Mars Chronicles" was out on may 13th 2013, signed under SEND THE WOOD MUSIC record label.

This first effort was mixed and mastered by Christian Carvin from All Production and has been strongly supported by the press.


"Une formation qui s'annonce être des plus prometteuses" (La Grosse Radio)


"Original et puissant dans tous les sens du terme. Il y a fort à parier que le groupe explose dans l'année à venir." (Midnight Coffee)


"The Mars Chronicles are one of the most promising acts to emerge onto the alternative metal scene" (Metality)


"Cet E.P ne devrait pas passer inaperçu tant il frôle la perfection dans son élaboration" (Pavillon 666)


"Une bien bouleversante odyssée de l'espace. Une leçon de vie vie en 5 morceaux sur l'intérêt de mettre de la mélodie dans le metal. Un EP irrésistible par son inspiration et sa fraicheur." (Sons Of Metal)


"Une formule magique, un savant mélange de mélodie, de puissance et de technicité au service de compositions travaillées, le tout servi par une production magistrale"  (Aux Portes Du Metal)


"Un savoir-faire étonnant, relayé par une production irréprochable. Autant d'émotion que de technique" (Rock Hard)


Early may, the band started working on their first video clip with Roswell, Nicolas Delpierre and François Le Goazigo, that is scheduled to be released early september.

Next fall, The Mars Chronicles will be on their first two month European Tour with Orphaned Land and Klone.

This is the reason why we are here…

Allocation of funds



The tour is scheduled to start on the 20th of September in Colmar until the 15th of November in the city of Dublin. This tour is scheduled to be 50 shows in 23 different countries covering thousands of kilometres.

We'll be on tour supporting bands such as oriental metal pionneers ORPHANED LAND and the oustanding french band KLONE !!!

It is an amazing opportunity for us to reach out to our fans and audience.


However, such a tour has a cost. Every band members has now invested their own funds to finance this project which is being calculated to 8000Euros approximately.

The band has no reserve funds and in order to tour with all the needed equipment, we are required to buy some gear (strings, cables, picks, drum heads, drum sticks, etc.), merchandising (shirts, lanyards, posters, etc.), a backdrop, etc.

You can carefully read the following budget drafted:







100 Tee shirts = 500E

1000 Posters = 250E

2000 Flyers = 150E

200 Lanyards = 200E

Backdrops = 400E

Stand Backdrop = 100E


Stage outfit:

Make up/body painting = 500E

Lenses = 75E/personne 300E

Stage clothes = 100E/person = 400E



Strings = 150E/guitar or bass = 450E

Cables = 200E/Guitar or bass = 600E

Picks = 50E

Drum sticks = 200E

Spare cymbals = 300E

Drum heads = 100E


Gear protection and transport:

Racks/flight cases  = 500E



TOTAL = 5000 Euros



After careful consideration of this document and our work, we would like to reach out to our supporters and fans to make donations in order to help us reach our dream. There are many other unlisted expenses, such as renting a vehicle to travel to Colmar and a second one to come back from Lille (500 euros each).

Plus all of the expenses during the tour (food, travel, etc) and some unforeseen expenses.



We would like to take this opportunity to reach out to all of you, to help us realize this dream.
