Sharpen your blades and fill your tankards, epic ones! Epic folk metal band Adavänt has returned with our 3rd full-length album: 

The Unyielding

For our third release, Adavänt is determined to create something truly special for diehard fans and new listeners alike. Accordingly, the band took over a year hiatus from live performances to painstakingly craft the music and story of The Unyielding. Now completely written and musically honed to perfection, we are proud to say that this album is undoubtedly our finest work yet. We can't wait to get into the recording studio so we can unleash it upon the world!

This exciting concept album follows the tale of an intrepid hunter who undertakes a journey to unravel a timeless mystery, set upon the backdrop of a fictional world created by Adavänt. After a failed assassination attempt upon his king, Darius the Unyielding is called upon to hunt down and destroy the culprit and dismantle the rebellious Brotherhood that has arisen throughout the kingdom. However, as he travels across the land and follows the clues to the assassin's whereabouts, he discovers a horrifying truth that causes him to question his allegiances, and ultimately, his true identity.

Artwork for the album will be provided by esteemed graphic artist, Tony Alongi.  The album booklet will also include a full color map of the Kingdom of Dimiscia, allowing the listener to follow along with the characters as the tale progresses. This will provide an immersive and epic experience, certain to transport the listener to the world of Adavänt's lore.

The Kingdom of Dimiscia

2. Hangman's Pass

3. Overgaard

4. The Stumbling Huntsman

5. The Landeer Stream

6. Fairhaven

7. The Catacombs

10. Barren Fields

11. The Divide

12. Gardens of the Ivory Keep

But, my friends, we need your help to make The Unyielding a reality! We have commissioned a prestigious Arizona recording studio to make sure this album has the highest sound quality possible in order to coincide with the band's vision. Due to the magnitude of the project, we want to make sure great care is taken at every step in the recording, mixing and mastering process.

 

BUT WAIT! THERE'S EVEN MORE INCENTIVE TO SUPPORT!

Adavänt is offering a series of exciting STRETCH GOALS exceeding the successful funding of our Project Goal!

STRETCH GOAL #1: $5,000

Adavänt will studio record our fan-favorite cover of BATTLE ON THE BIG BRIDGE from Final Fantasy 5, and release it for free download online! Up until now, this has been a song we have only performed live - now is your chance to get a studio recorded version for free!

STRETCH GOAL #2: $6,000

DIGIPACK EXCLUSIVE! All of our Kickstarter supporters will receive an exclusive full-color digipack version of the album instead of the standard jewel case!  This version will include a FULL COLOR MAP FOLD-OUT POSTER of the Kingdom of Dimiscia, so listeners can better enjoy following along with the characters in the album as the tale progresses.

STRETCH GOAL #3: $10,000

Adavänt will record a FULL ACOUSTIC VERSION OF THE ENTIRE NEW ALBUM, which will be given for exclusive free download to all of our Kickstarter supporters! This acoustic version of The Unyielding would be a true labor of love from the band, and would receive the same level of quality studio recording as the standard version of the album. Nothing goes better with a campfire and a flagon of ale than acoustic epic folk metal!

____________________________________________________________________

Please support our Kickstarter project with your donations, and take advantage of the amazing perks provided to all of our supporters. The band will not make a single coin of profit from your generous donations; all proceeds will be used to create music, art and merchandise, which will be immediately directed to the fans upon completion. 

Epic hails for your support, friends! We can't wait to share our newest adventure with all of you!

Cheers,

Adavänt

 

Risks and challenges

Thousands of hours of time has been spent crafting this album, from the music writing, to the lyrics, to the artwork. Needless to say, given the time we've spent on it, we want the finished product to sound perfect for the fans in every way possible! Accordingly, our primary challenge is raising enough funding in order to ensure that the recording quality lives up to the quality of the written material. Please help us make this dream a reality!
