Kerion: The French Symphonic Metal Band Behind The Conspiracy Of Darkness
Kerion is a symphonic metal band from France that has been active since 2003. They are known for their epic and fantasy-inspired albums that feature a lyrical choir, metal choirs, and guest vocalists. Their albums also have cover art by renowned artist JP Fournier (Avantasia, Edguy) and have been mixed by Wildric Lievin (Hamka, Fairyland) and Guillaume Serra.
One of their earliest works is the demo \"Conspiracy of Darkness\", which was released in 2003. It is the first part of a trilogy based on the heroic fantasy tale \"Staraxis\" written by Chris Barberi. The demo tells the story of a traveller who embarks on a quest to find the legendary Staraxis, a powerful artifact that can save the world from the evil Necromancer. Along the way, he faces many dangers and allies, such as black abysses of hell, angels of the last hope, dwarves, and ships of darkness.
The demo consists of 10 tracks, with an intro and an instrumental track. The music is influenced by bands like Rhapsody, Nightwish, and Blind Guardian, and combines symphonic elements with power metal riffs and solos. The vocals are performed by Flora Spinelli, who sings in a soprano voice with operatic style. The demo also features Phil Gordana (Fairyland) as a guest vocalist on some tracks.
\"Conspiracy of Darkness\" is a rare and hard-to-find demo that showcases the early talent and potential of Kerion. It is a must-have for fans of symphonic metal and fantasy stories. You can download it from their official website or from various online platforms.
