These are the handmade lyrics booklets, including handwritten lyrics of all the songs on our new album 'Necrologies', made by Lisette! Blood, sweat and tears were put into these works, but totally worth it! Hope you are enjoying them as much as she did making them 🦇 #crowdfunding #perks #books #lyrics #scarletstories #handwritten #bookbound #stories #darkprog #dark #necrologies #written #blood

We feel very honored indeed to be featured in Dutch national daily newspaper @nrcnl (nrc.next) with a beautiful review of our album 'Necrologies' by Peter van der Ploeg! Thank you for your very kind words and sharing our music! Grab you copy of the newspaper today! For all non-Dutch readers, here is the transcript for you to throw in Google/FB translate ;) 4/5 sterren "Sfeervol prachtdebuut Scarlet Stories We blijven er in Nederland goed in: progressieve metal - al dan niet symfonisch. Je plukt hier de Epica's, Within Temptation's, Ayreon's, VUUR's en Delain's sinds de jaren negentig rijp van de bomen. De zes mannen en vrouwen van het Tilburgse Scarlet Stories wurmen zich tussen dat rijtje met debuutalbum Necrologies. Muzikaal staan ze precies in het midden: donkere, melancholische metal, bij vlagen flink bombastisch. Maar je hoort ook dat ze ooit als akoestisch duo begonnen, want de ingetogen delen en dromerige sfeer zijn minstens zo belangrijk in het geheel, met een heel eigen geluid als resultaat. De hoofdrol is voor de wendbare stem van bioloog-by-day Lisette van den Berg, die kan fluisteren als een monnik, en dan weer met haar waterheldere uithalen lijnen trekt die zo strak zijn dat je er je was aan kunt ophangen. Daarmee houdt ze ook het ambitieus lange 'Vingt Mille Lieues Sous Les Mers' ruim elf minuten boeiend. De transparante productie van Joost van den Broek doet de rest: een prachtdebuut."

Thank you Jeffrey Klumper (@metalfan.nl) for your incredible review of our album release party last 19th September 2019! An emotional, wonderful and beautiful night for us, celebrating the release of our first full-length album 'Necrologies'. The report is supported by some amazing photos by Anrico van der Linden (@anricovdlinden) and shows the beautiful lighting work of Richel van Halteren. Thanks again to our guests Noctambulist for opening this special evening with their own debut-album work, our own crew & the people of @willem_twee_poppodium, everyone who visited the show and of course, everyone who made this journey and adventure possible! "Hoogtepunten zijn er vele. (...) De beleving van de bandleden bij de twee laatstgenoemde tracks zorgt ervoor dat het publiek, dat geboeid staat te kijken en al enthousiast reageert met applaus en gejuich nog meer decibels produceert na afloop."

Incredible; thank you Sjak and LoM for sharing these beautiful words about our album!

We are featured in @musicmaker_magazine with a nice review of our new album 'Necrologies'. Thank you very much Chinouk de Haan for your kind words!! "(...) De opvallende, heldere stem van zangeres Lisette maakt van alles een duidelijk geheel. De plaat is opgenomen met muzikant en producer Joost van den Broek (...) Op de mix is niets aan te merken: alle keuzes passen goed bij het genre en de muziek. Een heel interessante plaat waar je, ondanks het zware thema, toch blij van wordt."
