On 14th December we have the tremendous honor to support one of the founders of the progressive rock scene, FOCUS, with an semi-acoustic show at Het Bolwerk, Sneek! #Repost @het_bolwerk • • • • • • Bijna een halve eeuw oud en nog altijd is Focus alive & kicking! Met een volstrekt unieke vorm van progressieve rock manifesteerde Focus zich in de eerste helft van de zeventiger jaren als het succesvolste en meest gewaardeerde exportproduct van de Nederlandse popmuziek. Begin dit jaar is er – voor het eerst sinds 2012 – een volledig nieuw album van de legendarische band verschenen: Focus XI. Bring it on! @scarletstoriesmusic uit Tilburg verzorgt de semi-akoestische opwarming met hun eclectische en unieke stijl bloedrode verhalen geïnspireerd door onder meer progressieve rock, heavy metal, film soundtracks, doom en ambient. #progressiverock #progressieverock #rock #rockmuziek #70s #livemuziek #sneek #focus #scarletstories #acoustic #support

Thanks so much Marco Paasman (@zwaremetalen) for writing this fine piece on our album 'Necrologies'! A score of 90/100 and some really awesome words about our songs! "(...) Wat de band op Necrologies laat horen is bijzonder indrukwekkend. Vanaf de proloog wordt de luisteraar middels de veelzijdige stem van Lisette van den Berg meegevoerd in verhalen over de donkere kant van de mensheid, waarbij inspiratie wordt gehaald uit het werk van schrijvers als Jules Verne en Edgar Allen Poe. Dit alles onder begeleiding van een dynamisch klinkende soundtrack. (...)"

In this edition #160 of iO Pages: review of our album 'Necrologies'! Even named as 'TIP' and featuring in the album top 10 of this issue! We are so very proud and honored to receive these amazing compliments by this established prog magazine! Thank you Pieter Barth for your beautiful words! "Dit debuutalbum van de Tilburgse band Scarlet Stories doet blij verrassen. Necrologies is een gepolijste conceptplaat met diepgaande, sfeervolle tracks en introduceert een getalenteerde band. Geheimzinnig opgebouwde muzikale verhalen houden de aandacht vast dankzij met name de betoverende zang van Lisette van den Berg en de imponerende gitaar(solo's) van Bram te Kamp, alsmede de perfecte timing van Carmen Raats (gitaar), Sophie Ansems (viool), Maarten Grimm (bas) en Tim Kuper (drums). Een prettige combinatie van krachtige gitaren en dreigende viool vervult probleemloos de functie van keyboards en zorgt voor een eigen geluid. (...)"

Regional newspaper @brabants_dagblad (Southern part of The Netherlands) talked to Lisette about her motivation and drive behind the theme of the 'Necrologies' album. Available in today's paper, but also online (in Dutch). Thank you Gerrit van den Hoven for translating Lisette's words to this great article and featuring us! #scarletstories #progressivemetal #prog #metal #progressive #necrologies #album #brabants #brabantsdagblad #bioloog
