Who are we? What's this all about?
We are Incursed, a Folk/Pagan Metal coming from Bilbao (Basque Country). We started playing almost 10 years ago, and our current line-up is as follows (from left to right):
Asier Amo: drums
Jon Koldo Tera: vocals and keyboards
Lander Lourido: vocals and guitar
Mikel Llona: bass guitar
Asier Fernandez: guitar
Our main intention is to release our fourth LP, entitled Amalur, in spring of 2017, and we need your help to do so. This album will be more oriented to our culture in the Basque Country, although we won't leave our humorous and creative point of view aside when it comes to build up new stories.
About music, everything that Incursed had developed in previous albums will be sacrosanct: melodies, epicness and power applies to these songs, but this time we have attempted to look after every little aspect within this album. It is a more melancholic, personal work, but also much more intense. We believe it goes beyond everything we've done previously.
It certainly is an economically huge process, and that involves to get all the help we can get.
The last album we released, named Elderslied (and also funded through Verkami), got outstanding reviews from the specialized press. You can find some of them by following this link. It is also possible to listen it on this small applet:
You can also watch our last music video here:
What will your contributions be used for?
Contributions will be used to finance production costs for the album (recording, mixing and mastering) at Chromaticity Studios with Pedro J. Monge, and merchandise rewards (CDs, T-shirts, hoodies...). Likewise, every aspect of the artistic design, which will be made by Warbanner.eu, will also be funded with your support.
This €2,500 barrier we have defined will not make it possible to pay everything mentioned up to now, but will mean a superb and indispensable help coming from you.
Additionally, we would like to surpass this quantity in order to create the music video this album deserves, besides providing a physical format as thorough as possible.
The packs include shipping costs, even though we'd like to hand them out to you face to face, so we can properly thank you for your contribution, as well as saving some money.
We are also aware of the current situation regarding people's personal economies. That being so, we've arranged packs that every pocket can afford. Check the lowest ones:
Some a bit more powerful:
And the most terrible ones:
Every contribution is humoungously valuable to us, and we will be eternally grateful even if your help is not in the economic side, by sharing it will all your fellows, friends and relatives through social networks, messaging or face to face.
