Tragacanth is a black/death metal band with broad symphonic influences. Hailing from the heart of the Netherlands, their songs however tell of ancient Babylonian tales and times.
Composer and lead guitarist Erik Brouwer set everything in motion in 2014 and soon Jasper van Minnen (theNAME) joined on drums. Adrian "OQ" Neagoe (Negură Bunget) joined on guitar and with Terry Stooker to perform the vocals Tragacanth completed their recording line-up for their debut album, called 'Anthology of the East'.
'Anthology of the East' gives a great summary of what Tragacanth is about. Entrancing melodies and energetic drums, woven together by vast symphonic sections and interlaced by lyrical themes ranging from spiritual wars and long forgotten lore, to mythical creatures. The album is recorded in various studios and mixed and mastered by Oq pe Bune. The release is planned for 12 December 2015.
From the mystical, enigmatic Far East covered in “Anthology of the East”, this time we travel to Ancient Greek times where a young man finds out he is to perish soon. Wandering the complex maze of emotions and disease running through his veins, “Journey of a Man” tells the tale of his downward spiral into the abyss. With Moirai awaiting his final demise, a mind crippled with melancholy and his body traveling down the river Styx, his spirit is finally released. The final song of the album “Death: Journey’s End” serves as his requiem.
