An open letter to all fans of metal music and nonetheless, all friends of Monarchy

Ever since we started this band, we have set ourselves high goals and dreamed big. You always helped and supported us and that’s what kept us going. Well, right now, things are happening and we’re ready to embark on the biggest adventure of our lives and we want you to come with us!!!

In today’s hectic world, when metal is so undermined by the mainstream music and everybody is complaining about record sales, we want to show to ourselves and to the world, that we are a strong community and we still have a word to say in this! For we know, metal is way beyond a music genre, it is a way of living.

So let’s put all this madness together, not as fans of Monarchy, but as fans of metal music. We call out to come and join us on this mental road trip! We don’t want money! We want to see people who care! It doesn’t matter how you contribute, whether it’s a beer, a good word, a pat on the back or a kiss on the chick, we’ll be most happy! Everything counts and mark my words there will be a lot in it for you guys!

Join The Metal Odyssey!
Metal on Monarchy

You can give us a ride towards Leipzig? Or hand us a beer, some food, offer a place to sleep or a quick gig along our way? Here’s where you can support us. http://bit.ly/1dyjrp4

Bun, haideti ca ne-am recapatat cuvintele pe care le pierdusem ieri la aflarea vestii ca am castigat concursul Legacy.

Recapitulam insemnatatea a ceea ce s-a intamplat: e vorba despre un concurs desfasurat pe parcursul a aproximativ trei luni care a inclus peste 50 de trupe initial, majoritatea din scena de metal germana. Noi am fost singura trupa romaneasca participanta si, cu ajutorul celor care ne-au votat in semifinala si finala si in urma alegerii juriului de specialitate format din sponsori, am reusit sa castigam !

Pe langa validarea pe care o ofera muzicii rock romanesti, castigarea concursului organizat de Legacy vine si cu un premiu substantial: vom beneficia de contract cu o casa de discuri germana, de inregistrarea si productia unui nou album in Germania, precum si de o perioada de promo in spatiul german ce va include si aparitii live!

Cateva cuvinte din partea lui Dragos si a lui Iulian:

Dragos: “Sunt foarte bucuros ca am castigat, desi inca e foarte greu de asimilat ideea ca Monarchy, o trupa romaneasca, a reusit sa castige un concurs organizat de germani, luptand impotriva a peste 50 de trupe germane. E o confirmare uriasa pentru muzica noastra. Multumesc din suflet tuturor celor care ne-au votat si ne-au sprijinit, fara ei nu am fi ajuns in finala, si nu in ultimul rand juriului oficial Legacy, al carui vot a fost in final decisiv. Acest lucru vine si cu o mare responsabilitate pentru noi, lucrurile se vor desfasura la un alt nivel de acum inainte dar consider ca suntem foarte pregatiti pentru ce va urma.”

Iulian: “ Inca sunt ametit, nu pot sa cred ca dintre 51 de trupe germane a castigat a 52-a, o trupa romaneasca dintr-un colt al Europei. Increderea pe care o au in noi oamenii care ne-au votat precum si juriul Legacy nu poate decat sa ne onoreze in cel mai inalt grad si sa ne induca o foarte mare responsabilitate. Pana la urma nu este vorba numai de victoria formatiei Monarchy ci de victoria intregii lumi metal din Romania. Fara minunatii nostrii fani si sustinatori, acest lucru nu ar fi fost posibil. Totodata trebuie sa multumesc acestor minunati oameni care alcatuiesc managementul Monarchy si sponsorilor care ne-au sustinut si au crezut in noi pana in ultima clipa: Blackhawk Security si Metalfan Romania. Promitem sa nu va dezamagim ! ROCK ON ! LOVE YOU!”

Multumim sponsorilor Metalfan si Blackhawk Security, dar si tuturor fanilor care ne-au fost alaturi, ne-au votat si ne-au sustinut pe parcursul acestei perioade. E un moment important in parcursul formatiei, care nu ar fi fost posibil fara ajutorul celor care continua sa creada in ceea ce inseamna muzica de calitate !

In sfarsit, a venit momentul adevarului, momentul pe care suntem siguri ca il asteptati de cateva luni bune! Aseara la Ploiesti am demascat bestia din spatele tobelor si… surpriza!! Cine credeti ca se ascundea in spatele mastii? Nimeni altul decat Geani Matei, fratele nostru care a fost alaturi de Monarchy inca din stadiile „incipiente” ale formatiei, acelasi Geani Matei care si-a pus sufletul in piesele albumului Feeding The Beast si care a tras tobele cu noi in studio. Fara el, noi am mers mai departe, dar ne lipsea o scanteie. Acum familia s-a reunit. Bine ai revenit, Geani!

Am sarbatorit acest moment special in concert alaturi de publicul minunat din Ploiesti, prin interpretarea in premiera a primei noastre balade, compusa chiar de Geani pentru fiul sau! Va invitam sa vizionati mai jos ceea ce s-a intamplat pentru prima oara intr-un show Monarchy, dar ne cerem scuze de pe acum pentru calitatea slaba a inregistrarii si a conditiilor tehnice precare. Am preferat sa cantam pentru voi indiferent cat de prost ar fi sunat, decat sa anulam chiar ultimul concert din turneu si va multumim pentru ca ati fost langa noi si ne-ati sustinut!

La final de turneu si de an, dorim sa multumim tuturor celor care au fost alaturi de noi, in mod special Metalfan si Blackhawk Security, fara de care nimic nu s-ar fi putut intampla, Trooper si Silver Bullet pentru momentele extraordinare petrecute pe scena si in afara ei, fanilor prezenti la concerte si tuturor celor care continua sa creada in noi!

Nu uitati ca avem nevoie de sustinerea voastra in poll-ul Legacy: https://www.facebook.com/questions/579010862125076/

[EN] Finally, the long awaited moment of truth has come! A moment you have been waiting for since September! Last night at our show in Ploiesti, we have unmasked the beast behind the drums aaaand… surprise!! Who do you think was hiding behind the mask? None other than Geani Matei, our brother who has been a part of Monarchy since the early stages of the band, the same Geani Matei who put his soul into the creation of Feeding the Beast album and who recorded the drum tracks in the studio. We’ve moved forward without him, but we all knew a spark was missing. Now the family is reunited. Welcome back, Geani!

We’ve celebrated this special moment during our show with the wonderful audience from Ploiesti, by playing our first balad for the first time, a song composed by Geani himself for his son! We invite you to watch what happened for the first time ever in a Monarchy show, but we already apologize for the poor quality of the recording and the very poor tehnical conditions in which we were forced to play. Still, we rather played for you no matter how bad it sounded than cancel the last show of the tour and we thank you for being there for us and supported us!

At the end of the year and of our tour, we’d like to thank everybody who has been by our side, especially Metalfan and Blackhawk Security, without whose generous help none of this could have happened, Trooper and Silver Bullet for the extraordinary moments spent on and off the stage, the fans who attended our shows and everyone who keeps believing in us!

Don’t forget we need your support in the Legacy poll: https://www.facebook.com/questions/579010862125076
