THE ALKAIOS PROJECT

Launched in 2016 by the band NevBorn, Alkaios is an artistic project resulting from 6 years of passionate work bringing together many artists from different backgrounds. Themed on the legend of the labours of Heracles, it is composed of 12 pieces of about 15 minutes each, for a total of 3 hours spread over 3 records. This crowdfunding is dedicated to the first of the three records. Wishing to accompany our concepts with an exclusive and atypical element, each track will be accompanied by an illustration made by a different artist. The goal is to create a unique identity (Alkaios) beyond the band, to bring all these «labours» under it.

WHO ARE WE?

NevBorn is a progressive metal band (Circa survive, The Ocean, Tesseract, Agent Fresco, etc.) from Western Switzerland. Well inspired by many different sources, our songs stand out due to their narrative side in the manner of a movie soundtrack. Our first album, «Five Horizons», released in 2015 after a few demos, was warmly received by the critics and pushed us to go further in our creative process. In 2017, we tested our audience by releasing «Daídalos», a one-song EP of almost 20 minutes in length. Despite our fear that a piece of this length wouldn’t be well received, the critics were on our side. Thus, ’Daídalos’ marked a turning point in the band’s development and our way of composing focused on the idea of presenting our tracks not as pieces of music, but rather as a compilation of different chapters of a long story.

WHY DO WE NEED NEED YOU?

We have decided to achieve a substantial, well-produced work that brings together various talented artists. A project that will mark a turning point in the band’s life. However, there are grey areas such as the financing part of the work. A large part of it has been provided by us, but we have reached a point where it is difficult to move forward without spending a large amount of money at once. The production and distribution of vinyl records, CDs, t-shirts, paper reproductions of artworks are a necessary aspect that helps ensure the promotion and diffusion of our art and this is where you come into play. The first goal of this crowdfunding is to be able to ensure the pre-payment of the different media options we wish to offer to our listeners. You can also support us with a donation but it’s always nicer to leave with something in your hands, is it not?
