With great regret we have to inform you, that Ines won’t come back as our guitarplayer in Arven. We want to thank her for the countless amazing experiences we shared in this band together and wish her all the best for her future musical carreer! Here is what Ines has to say:
I am very sorry to tell you that I won’t come back to Arven as a guitar player anymore. My year in the USA was very exciting and it was a great experience pushing me towards my dream with the classical guitar. I have fallen in love with the country and the people and I decided to stay here to study in a doctoral program at USC in Los Angeles. I will pursue a doctoral degree in music (DMA) and this will take about 3 years, a time which is too long to be substituted for Arven.
I am really sorry to leave the band and if it wouldn’t be so far away I would love to try to continue playing! Unfortunately it is unrealistic and not good for the band if I won’t be around.
I will always be in touch with the girls and Till and I will be their biggest fan, even if it is time for me to move on.
Thank you all for the great time I had in my very first metal band I ever played in. It was an amazing time and I am happy that I had this experience. I hope the band will find a new member who is motivated and happy to play this wonderful music.
Thank you all for the great support! Maybe some time our paths will cross again…
Things must go on, and as you might have guessed we are in need for a new great female guitarplayer. So if you’re interested watch out for more info about that coming soon!
Ines, we will miss you so much and we won’t forget the great times we spend together!

So that were the three dates we joined Van Canto and Winterstorm on the Tour of the Brave 2014. It was just incredibly amazing! All our expectations have been beaten by far! We had packed venues in Strasbourg, Ludwigsburg and Aschaffenburg and the crowds were simply awesome! Thank you so much – we will come back!
Van Canto and Winterstorm both put the hell of a show on the stages while being the nicest and most funny guys in the backstage!
See you all in May and June when we return to the stages to support Xandria in Schüttdorf and Hamburg, at the Out and Loud Festival in Geiselwind and at the Metalfest in Pilsen!
2013 was a great year for us, as it saw the release of our second studio album "Black Is The Colour". The overwhelming response to this record was just incredible. So thank you again for your awesome support!
Unfortunately it was a little bit calm on the live-front for the latest months, but we're gonna change that in the first half of 2014!
We're starting of with a radio appearance at BOROs Rockshow on 103,4 Radio Darmstadt or www.radiodarmstadt.de. on Feb 8th, 09:00 pm.
There will be live-interviews with the hole band, songs from our new album and much more!
On Feb, 15th we'll return to the stage at the CD-Release show of the Gothic Rockers Atropos Choice in Heuchelheim, Germany.
Shortly after we'll be supporting the a-capella Metal Heroes Van Canto on three dates of their upcoming tour, including a return to france on Feb, 21st.
Also we're looking forward to play our first really big Metal Festivals by the end of May: The Out & Loud Festival in Geiselwind, Germany and the Metalfest Czech Republic in Pilsen – our first show in Czech Republic ever!
And – just confirmed – we will also make our first live appearance in the netherlands! We were invited to play at the record-release show of the great Seventh Sin on Feb, 22nd in Weert!
