Welcome To Blackbriar!

We are thrilled to present our newest roster addition, Dutch alternative metal-gothic rock collective Blackbriar! For booking inquires in Europe, please get in touch with luc@doomstarbookings.com

Blackbriar first conjured their vision of darkly dreamy alternative/gothic metal back in 2012 when Zora Cock, René Boxem, and Bart Winters came together to form the band, which laid the foundations for the release of their first single, “Ready to Kill,” in 2014. But it was in September 2015 with their second single, “Until Eternity,” where Blackbriar truly emerged onto the scene with a captivating and unique video to accompany it.

The band chose to continue the independent route and again successfully crowdfunded their second EP, We’d Rather Burn, which was unleashed in October 2018. With Fractured Fairytales having caught the attention of famed producer Joost van den Broek (After Forever, Epica, Ayreon, Xandria, Powerwolf), they enlisted him to arrange and produce the EP, giving it an even more stunning and occasionally whimsical feel, sure to leave the listener spellbound.

Blackbriar had no intentions of slowing down. From their continued total DIY ethos, they have a clear vision and direction for the band. Already with almost 27 million YouTube channel views and over 155K subscribers, they are now ready to take the entire metal world by storm. Blackbriar has just released their latest EP “Our Mortal Remains” and is currently at work on their full-length debut album, again with Joost van den Broek at the helm, tentatively scheduled for release later this year.
