The year 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the German Celtic Metal band SuidAkrA. This would not have been possible if it wasn't for our loyal, diehard fans out there around the globe supporting us through the good and the bad. With every record we tried to evolve and reinvent what the core of this band has always been about and always will be: the music. The process of incorporating diverse musical styles and not-so-typical instruments into metalmusic has become our trademark, with the goal of achieving the next level of creative freedom, which is what led us to release a full-length acoustic record this year, Cimbric Yarns.

For the 25th anniversary, we wanted to celebrate our long journey to this point by doing something a bit different. Looking back at what the band did in former times, at the roots of SuidAkrA, we considered releasing a “best of” compilation, but not the usual kind of compilation with a selection of songs picked by the band. Instead, we thought we should let YOU choose which ones we should put on a record of a total of 10 songs. We want YOU to choose YOUR favourite songs from the first five SuidAkrA records, up to and including Emprise To Avalon, and we will re-rerecord them with updated, modern production methods, compared to the classic versions in the highly professional and well-known ´Gernhart-Studio´ and owner Martin Buchwalter. 

As a bonus, former member ´Marcel Schoenen´ will also be on board to redo his vocal lines, so you can be sure to get the classic SuidAkrA-feeling of those old songs in a fresh and polished way. And of course, ´Kris Vervimp´ will also be part of this project to take care of the album artwork and design!

Now it's YOUR turn to make this project possible. We need your donations to be able to cover all the expenses in producing and putting out a record like this. But this will also be YOUR chance to be part of the whole process. 

So, here’s the way it works: You can choose from one of three (3) packages, each one different depending on the price to be paid. In return, you will get the chance to witness the whole process of recording the album PLUS you can choose which songs we will record.

Cheers,

_SuidAkrA
