Italian Symphonic metal band Ancient Bards have released a music video for their new single ‘Light’ the track appears on their new album “Origine – The Black Crystal Sword Saga Part 2”, which will be released January 25th. (USA street date 22. February). The video can be seen below.
The band says: “Light is a very special track for all of us and we’re very proud of it. The hauntingly beautiful melodies Daniele wrote are mirrored by the powerful message the song wants to convey. We love ballads, and since ‘In My Arms’ was very appreciated it wasn’t an easy job to match it, but we have a feeling this might even top it. The video is the majestic work of our longtime friend and great director Matteo Ermeti Director – Filmmaker who did an excellent job in portraying the essence of the song into images.”
Ancient Bards’ fourth studio album titled “Origine – The Black Crystal Sword Saga Part 2” continues the fantasy story “The Black Crystal Sword Saga” the band has been telling through their music since 2010.

The strength of their support has been so comforting and stimulating it kept us focused on making what we think could be our best work so far.
