As Night Falls – Symphonic Metal Hailing From Katowice, Poland
It all began in the summer of 2010 when two musicians who had already known one another from their previous musical projects – vocalist Anna Achtelik and guitarist Paweł Dylewski, decided to create the project of their dreams – a symphonic metal band that would follow in the footsteps of the greatest bands of the genre, but still remaining original and searching for their own style.
After adding additional members to the band, the first songs were created very quickly and the first shows were played at the beginning of 2012. The very positive reaction given by people attending those first live shows confirmed that the musical direction was right. The first studio record was released later that year – an EP called My Secret Place, containing four songs, and the first music video for a song called My Memory. In the meantime, new material was being composed and the band attended multiple shows and festivals. In 2014 As Night Falls released their second EP entitled From Grace To Oblivion.
In late 2016 the band released their first full length LP, entitled Embrace the Journey. This LP took the band on the next step of their journey, which saw them tour Europe during late 2016 and into 2017, and now they are bringing their music to UK shores for two very special shows in London and Leicester during March 2018.
The band has previously supported several Globally successful bands: Tarja Turunen (ex Nightwish), Liv Kristine (Leaves Eyes), Proletaryat, Artrosis, Antimatter (Duncan Patterson- ex bass player from Anathema) and many more.
“Serpentyne, Female Fronted Symphonic Folk Metal from Great Britain, founded by Maggiebeth Sand and Mark Powell in 2010.
‘Lavishly orchestrated cinematic majesty, embracing galloping rhythms from the power-metal genre.” (Progression, USA. 2017)
“…A fusion of medieval sounds with biting electric guitars and pounding drums… The serpent has arisen!”
(Orkus magazine, Germany)
“Nightwish comparisons might seem unavoidable… But by the fourth track of the album “Jeanne D”Arc”, the fusion of hurdy-gurdy and Maggiebeth Sand’s operatic voice atop heavy guitar riffs confirms Serpentyne’s uniquely adventurous approach… What’s not to love?”
(**** (4 Stars) Dewey Gurall, Progression Magazine USA, 2016)
