Ars Nova, 2022

ARS NOVA is a band formed in Barcelona in 2008, with members with years of experience in the Spanish music scene. We play melodic heavy metal with strong influences of progressive and power metal.

We've published two albums up until now, Ars Nova (2009) and Sombra y luz (2018). But the best is yet to come...

Our project

It took us more than 9 years to create our second album, "Sombra y Luz", which we published in 2019 after a successful crowdfunding campaign in Verkami. We had planned to keep on touring during 2020, but lots of things didn't go as we expected that year...

The pandemic forced us to stay home, and soon several new dreams started to take shape. These dreams make up the 12 songs of "Abrazando las sombras".

This new project embraces the most representative musical elements of our previous albums and takes them even further, while also exploring new horizons for the band.

It is our most melodic and accessible work to date, without giving up the complexity and musical depth that has always been our part of our DNA.

The creation of "Abrazando las sombras" has also coincided with the departure of Carlos Sierra (guitars) from the band. Instead of replacing him, we have opted for filling the album with incredible collaborations that we will unveil during the following days.

But maybe the biggest jump you'll find in the new album is in its sound. The pandemic made us change how we write music, but also how we record it. We have invested in cutting-edge home studios that allowed all songs to be recorded and produced by Ars Nova.

The mixing and mastering have been done by Isra Dante Ramos (Dante Music Studios), one of the best sound engineers in the Spanish metal scene.

We are in awe at the final result. Don't believe us? Check out the first single from "Abrazando las sombras": El efecto mariposa.

What will we do with your contributions?

We have funded the recording and mixing of "Abrazando las sombras" ourselves. Our goal is to offer you a professional quality work on every aspect, from music to design and live performance, and we can't do it without you.

We need your help to have the best possible album release, including the production of merchandising, promotional material, the album's live debut, and covering the costs of the mixing and mastering.

Planned roadmap

"Abrazando las sombras" will be released on February 17th, 2023. However, contributing to any reward will give you access to the digital version of the album one week before the official release.

The rest of the rewards will be sent out during March and April and will also be available at the album's live debut show in La Nau (Barcelona) on May 20th, 2023.

"Abrazando las sombras" live debut

We will introduce our new album live on May 20th, 2023, in La Nau (Barcelona). La Nau is one of the best venues in Barcelona in terms of sound quality, and it is the perfect place for a very special event where we will play several songs from "Abrazando las sombras" live for the first time.

Contributing to this project is a unique opportunity to get tickets for this show at a very reduced price, since they are included in most of the rewards. Don't miss out!

Don't worry if you can't make it to the concert, though: we're trying to add more shows soon and introduce the album in different cities in Spain. Hopefully no global pandemic will get in the way this time around :)

Felices fiestas, arsnovistas!

Esperamos que estéis disfrutando de estos días de celebraciones y, para hacerlos aun más dulces, nosotros también os hemos preparado un regalito🎁

Hoy os traemos una de las cosas en las que más ilusión nos ha hecho trabajar para este nuevo álbum: el primer videoclip oficial de Ars Nova!🎬🎬

Se trata de la canción que abre el disco y le da título, "Abrazando las sombras", y cuenta con la colaboración de una de las mejores voces de la escena del metal español actual: Isra Dante Ramos (Avalanch, Alquimia, Amadeus, Gräce...).

Además de mezclar y masterizar el disco, Isra nos prestó su voz para este tema y se marcó un dueto increíble con Alfonso.

Para la realización del vídeo también contamos la colaboración de Jose Mercado, gracias a él se ve tan espectacular!

Podéis ver el vídeo aquí:

Ars Nova - Abrazando las sombras

Esperamos que lo disfrutéis y lo comparáis!

Felices fiestas!
