BLOOMING DISCORD - 1er EP !

Blooming Discord is a hard rock/heavy metal band from Marseille, inspired by the universe of Tim Burton as well as bands such as Avenged SevenfoldMetallica and Iron Maiden. We celebrate our 3 years of existence by releasing the single/clip "Burn It" that you already sing along to at each of our shows!

 

 

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 creativity through music, videos, visuals and an ever-improving show in terms of musical and stage performance, including decors and atmospheres, to bring out an astonishing audiovisual performance!

 

WHY THE NAME BLOOMING DISCORD?

 

The band name comes from a paradox at the heart of the first record, which is a concept album. In a few words, the story we tell throughout the songs 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 character embodies harmony in chaos, and the inextricable relationship between life and death: discordant bloom, or Blooming Discord.

 

SINCE WHEN HAS THE BAND EXISTED?

 

The idea of the band goes back to late 2013, and its effective creation with the complete line-up to May 2014. We moved into our first rehearsal space in late 2014, and played our first show in October 2015 at La Rate Penade (Roquevaire, in the inlands of Marseille): things accelerated from that time on!

WHICH MUSICIANS, WHAT INSTRUMENTS?

 

We are a regular heavy metal band of 5 with:

 

- a lead singer who focuses on his vocals and which parts alternate different types of clean and saturated vocals on a range and intentions as varied as possible,

 

- two guitarists that often use two-part harmonies, among them one lead guitarist who is particularly into convoluted and eccentric pieces, and one rhythm guitarist who gives special attention to details and provides almost all musical arrangements,

 

- a bass player who uses his very own influences to suggest unusual melodic lines for a band of our kind,

 

- a blacksmith-drummer, full of creativity whether for his drum parts or the atmosphere that we seek to immerse the band in, notably through stage costumes partly manufactured by him.

 

We are lucky to have a bass player who masters and composes on the piano, and a rhythm guitarist who originally is a violinist, which enables us to vary our ways of composing, considering music and enrich our songs, in order to actually tell a story through music and staging!

Waar dient de collecte voor

It is mostly thanks to your constant support since the beginning that we can allow ourselves to be ambitious: we want to sincerely thank you for that! Today with you and thanks to you, this is about taking a step as a music band, with the main objectives of such collection being:

3 - Launch the production of Blooming Discord merchandising (t-shirts, keychains, lighters, stickers...) = about 1,500 euros

 

4 - Bank charges (3%) and KissKissBankBank fee (5%) = 440 euros

 

 

AS A BONUS (because this collection, ideally, will be useful in the long run: you sow your contribution now and reap the benefits for months if not years!):

 

5 - Fund the recording, production, printing and distribution of our 1st LP 'Blooming Discord" = about 4,000 euros
