Scarlet Stories

Powerful, dynamic vocals and melancholic melodies blended with temperamental chords create sinister tales and carry you away into the stories told. Scarlet Stories explores the dark corners of the world in their progressive music; one moment fragile and delicate and the other intense, passionate and fierce!

Scarlet Stories originally consists of Bram te Kamp (guitar) and Lisette van den Berg (vocals) who started out creating melancholic acoustic songs heavily influenced by progressive metal. In the fall of 2012 they decided to accept the challenge to sculpt their music in both an acoustic and expanded form. By joining forces with Tim Kuper (drums), Carmen Raats (guitar) and Maarten Grimm (bass), Scarlet Stories creates a unique type of dark progressive music with an eclectic range of influences. The stories told are about mankind's darkest emotions & acts, inequity, beauty and murder; written to make you think about the world we live in and delivered with an impressive and dramatic live performance.

Synodus Horrenda

From the ashes of "Hydra" rises "Synodus Horrenda"!
Without the departed members of Hydra, the only right thing to do was to call it quits and spawn a new band. In Synodus Horrenda the remaining members can spread their black metal with great pride. The first two releases are from the scattered recording that began back in 2005 with Hydra, put back together with new vocalist A in 2010. First up is a 3 track EP called "Grown from the cold", next up is a full length album named "Synodus Horrenda". This is the music that is the foundation for the band, where we come from, though we strive to progress the band beyond the stereotypes. New material is being recorded and hopefully released soon.
