As a founding member and unmistakeable voice of Ex Libris she is fully dedicated to continue being our front woman.The release of Medea is likewise not affected by this news. We are ever more excited about recording and releasing this album and asure you that Dianne, in her role as 'Medea', will keep haunting the stage together with us!
Dear friends, fans and followers,
It gives me great pleasure to share with you that I have reached another milestone in my music career! I am very proud to tell you that as of today I will be the new front woman to German symphonic metal band: Xandria!
You may already know Xandria from their impressive discography including ‘Ravenheart’ and ‘Neverworld’s End’, or from their tours with Kamelot and Epica. The future will for sure bring more adventures to this amazing band and I am thrilled to be joining them.
My new role as front woman to Xandria will definitely not mean that I will part ways with Ex Libris. On the contrary! Both bands will represent different aspects of me as a singer and complete me as a front woman, soprano and vocal coach.
Thinking of all the beautiful things I am yet to do, people I am yet to meet and memories that are yet to be made brings a smile to my face! I am looking forward to this adventure and would love to take you all along with me.
Hey everyone! You have probably heard it by now: we are currently recording our second full-length album. It’s been a long, long way coming for us, but we are thrilled to finally hear all the songs we’ve worked so hard at come to life in the studio. "Medea" is going to be an epic 60+ minutes concept album!
Recording and releasing an album without the support of a label is tough. It takes a lot of time and money. There’s recording, mixing and mastering to be done, artwork to be drawn, merchandise to be ordered and shows to be planned. You get the idea. Lucky for us (and you!), we love what we’re doing and we want to make the best album we can.
We are very grateful for all of you who support us, whether it’s a ‘like’ on Facebook or making a two-hour drive to visit one of our shows. Perhaps you’ve never seen us live, but simply liked what you saw and heard online. Or maybe you’ve had our first album for years and can’t wait to hear what comes next. Well, to make this release something truly special for all of you, we need YOUR help!
We are starting this campaign for a very simple reason: we love making music and want you to be a part of it! It’s about making sure that all the money you spend goes straight to the music. That’s also why we’ve created packages that are simple and clear, at a fair price. Metal fans are the most loyal fans in the world and we’re very eager to give you all something exclusive in return. So whether you’re a long-time fan, a supporter of independent bands, or someone who simply likes our music: you can help us out with the click of a button!
