About the bands
Still unknown to most heavy music fans, Vuur is the latest adventure by Anneke Van Giersbergen, the charming and seductive former vocalist of the legendary The Gathering. Having abandoned the authors of such remarkable titles as “Mandylion” or “Nightime Birds” and embarking on a successful solo career, which saw her explore other genres closer to pop, the talented Dutch artist now rehearses a return to heavier and more progressive music.
Myrath come from Ez-Zahra in the improbable Tunisia. The project took shape in 2006 and for the next 10 years it has relied on albums such as “Desert Call”, “Tales of the Sands” or the latest “Legacy / ميراث” to establish a reputation as one of the most exotic and challenging acts that extreme music has to offer nowadays.
