We’re proud and happy to announce that we’ve completed our progressive metal trilogy “ANN”! The creation of “ANN” is a journey that started in June 2018 when we launced a successful crowdfunding campaign and were supported by fans from all over the world!
“ANN” consists of 3 different chapters. In each chapter we will let the listener dive into history and tell the tale of a historical female figure named “ANN”:
– Chapter 1: Anne Boleyn
– Chapter 2: Anastasia Romanova
– Chapter 3: Anne Frank
Dutch symphonic progressive powerhouse Ex Libris was founded in 2004 by Dianne van Giersbergen (ex-Xandria) who today still features as front woman to the band. Other members are Bob Wijtsma (ex-Xystus, Ayreon) on guitar, Luuk van Gerven (ex-After Forever) on bass guitar and Harmen Kieboom on Drums. Joost van den Broek (ex-After Forever, Ayreon) features as guest musician on keyboards.
Their latest work is the previously named progressive metal trilogy “ANN” that will honor 3 historical female figures, all carrying the name ‘Ann’. In writing and releasing this trilogy they aim to educate as well as entertain their fans all around the world. “ANN” is produced by Dutch producer Joost van den Broek at Sandlane Recording Facilities. Joost will also feature as guest musician on ‘Chapter 3: Anne Frank’.
