Märchenbilder is the German word for Images of Fairy Tales
Märchenbilder was created in 2009 by James Slainmann (Composition/Orchestration/Guitars/Keys & Effects) and contralto Julie Bélanger Roy (Vocals/Violin/Viola/Recorder & Lyrics).
They worked on creating a Symphonic Metal ensemble, a modern blend between heavy metal and orchestral music inspired by the German composers of the 19th century and their great creations.
The following years were busy for both James and Julie: completing their university degrees, composing music, writing lyrics and recruiting talented musicians.
The band finally saw the light of day in 2010 with the addition of an internationally renowned drummer, Yanic Bercier, who would bring a new energy to the ensemble.
A few months later, they started the recording of their first opus at WaveTransform Studios in Knoxville (USA). Their first album, Flickering Truth, was released May 30th 2013.
