Bard von Bree

Inspired by Tolkien’s work, the adventures of our favorite heroes, dark fantasy stories, nature and most of all heavy music, drives Bard von Bree to be what it is…. a fusion of dirty riffs, vintage vocals and synths, hammering drums…..drums in the deep, and a Bard singing in German! 

The songs float in a pool of Stoner Rock // Krautrock // Psychedelic Rock and even Doom. Strong and catchy songs with a feel of dark magic, fueled by Tolkien’s epic sagas. The tales might seem gloomy or sometimes even cheerful, it depends on the nature of the story being sung.

Imagine sitting at a table in ‘‘The Prancing Pony’ in Bree enjoying a pint..yes it comes in pints. And then all of a sudden you hear a voice from a darkened stage, sounding like it is possessed by an evil spirit, singing songs about all the tales from Middle-Earth and Arda you may or may not have heard of. You might be spooked, but it has a nice ring to it. Something to like, to call precious…

Bard von Bree finds its origin in a quiet country town where the mystic vibe of nature has always been inspiring. And it is here where the love for ‘The Lord of the Rings’, ‘The Hobbit’ and many other tales came to fruition. In a small home studio in the ground, it is where the first songs were made and the idea began…One band to play them all. 

The first taste of Bard von Bree is the fresh released song ‘Zauberer’, released on the 25th of March (the chosen date on which the Ring was destroyed, completing Frodo’s quest and vanquishing Sauron). 

A tune that smashes like battering ram with a wolves head through your speakers and teaches you about the importance of a quite well known disturber of the peace. 

Yes, it could seem weird. And so do all who live to hear such songs, but that is not for them to decide. 

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. Just give it a go, listen to a few songs.

You might like what Bard von Bree sings about, or not. They are stories worth telling.

You’ll find out you don’t know half of the songs as well as you should like, and like less than half of the songs as well as they deserve.
