Today, millions of music fans are confused by and tired of, "what's hot & what is not." Even more so, are the thousands of artists who frantically chase after the latest trends, trying to jump on the bandwagon as it goes by. But always, there is another group of artists who doesn't want to be another poor sheep in the fashion's flock. They prefer to be a "Fashion Makers" instead.
And so is Ancient Tale! The band, which always like to mix lots of different music styles with very poetical and meaningful lyrics. Their debut album "Desire to Burn" features songs such as "Lamentation", Desire to Burn" & "Anti Urban Hymn", and deals with such things like Politics, Terrorism, Religion & Love.
"Ancient Tale" was formed in the middle of 1999 by Steve Gershon (Bass/Vocals) and Dave Sherman (Guitar), and previously was named "Fairytale". Band used to play an Alternative Pop Rock, with the elements of Trash and Goth. From 2000 to 2002 we work really hard, trying to find our own style and sound. We made lots of local gigs, and also played in some local festivals such as "Rock Against the Drugs", "Extreme Rock" and etc.
In the middle of 2002 we've change musicians and music style.
In the beginning of 2003 bands name "Fairytale" was forced to be changed to "Ancient Tale" because we found two different bands with the same name ahead of us.
Also we recorded our first album "Desire to Burn", and when we were invited into "New York International Music Festival", that took place in Las Vegas (USA), where we won the first place in "Metal" category.
Today "Ancient Tale" (now doubt) is a Heavy Metal Band, but with our own vision of it.
