Powerful, dynamic vocals and melancholic melodies blended with temperamental chords create sinister tales and carry you away into the stories told.
Scarlet Stories explores the dark corners of the world in their progressive, eclectic music; one moment fragile and delicate and the other intense, passionate and fierce!
Scarlet Stories originally consists of Bram te Kamp and Lisette van den Berg (Ayreon, Karmaflow) who started out creating melancholic acoustic songs heavily influenced by progressive metal. In the fall of 2012 they decided to accept the challenge to sculpt their music in both an acoustic and expanded form. By joining forces with Tim Kuper (Kudra Mata), Carmen Raats (Witte Wieven) and Maarten Grimm (Triangulum), Scarlet Stories creates a unique type of dark progressive music with an eclectic range of musical influences. The stories told are about mankind’s darkest emotions & acts, inequity, beauty and murder; written to make you think about the world we live in and delivered with an impressive and dramatic live performance.
In 2013 Scarlet Stories presented their first acoustic EP album ‘Scarlet Stories’ and received enthusiastic responses from the public and press. As well did their heavier work; EP album “Resurrection” was released in May 2015 and features tracks recorded in full band formation. Hereby Scarlet Stories showed they were ready to conquer the bigger stages!
Scarlet Stories was support act for Antimatter, Danny Cavanagh (Anathema), Gus G & Marty Friedman, Stream of Passion, KLONE and more. In 2018 they return to the recording studio and start working on their first full-length album.
Now it’s here, named Necrologies.
