New groups and other improvements

Image
I apologize for silence for a month. I was tired and then had to work on my other website that you can see now if you click on my name... but its a French site about serious games... Very different from here 😏
In the meantime, I thought to Sword Chant, its community and the sharing of the news.
The world is changing It started with social network and high-tech keeps changing our behaviours. I tried to bring you a new tool and some new activites with Discord but it didn’t work. Instead, I created new groups.
NEW GROUPS Thinking to the news to share, and our community. I extended our Facebook page to two groups : one for bands & PR, and the other one for our nice community.


Meanwhile Bands/PR can ever send their news by email, now they can also join this new tool that aims to one easier sharing of their news to be available on the website then : SCgroupforBands 
Our nice Facebook community can join and discuss music in this group : SCgroupforFans

Rage!
My dear goddess I’m calling you
Give me the strength to face my foes
I pledge my sword and my soul into battle
Let my fury charge with you!

Now the fight has begun
Scattered shields, broken lives
Close to my own arm so many friends are falling
Blood is darkening my sight
Fear driven to anger
Kill! I’ve lost my mind, the beast inside is roarin…

Can free show be possible at Sword Chant ?

Image
There is the question... 👧

I got one (sick!) idea for our Discord : let's try to plan some shows over there!
I imagined shows that would be free for anyone who would join our Discord.
Bands would play live for us - from their rehearsal room, studio or whatever at their place and we would listen to them, and enjoy and comment music played.
But is it possible ?
Probably the band would need a specific set-up for. A thing I would like to know to tell other bands with desire to make shows there in the future.
Electric instruments are probably not possible or I don't believe much - I don't know But Acoustic shows ?
Thus, we are looking for Musicians testers to know if we can make it.
First one making this possible will get in the first show over there.
If that works, we would plan a show date together.
Folk Metal/Folk Bands and people in band or not interested can log in our Discord  and there, tell they're interested for me to open the Soundcheck room to you.

Our great community deserves the best

Image
Dear followers,

You probably know that Sword Chant was a forum back in 2007 and it ended because the social networks expansion anywhere. Today, Privacy matters may be unsafe with them. That's why, artists like McKennitt left her facebook page.
And that's also why I don't want to create a community group to a social network.
I've been thinking to our community, the past and present, and I ever been saddened by the end of our forum because that was one great tool for us all to communate, work on some projects together, and discover each other. We had fun time in that forum where could be fans, listeners and artists there.
Wouldn't you like to get that opportunity again ?
So, I created a Discord server for the Sword Chant community, available in the menu of this website.
Mainly known in the gaming world for now, I think Discord is a tool for the future and safe.
I don't plan to share news over there or not now, but it doesn't mean news can't be inside.

Some more improvements for Sword Chant

Hi, folks!

I want to tell about some pages and the Discord idea launched earlier.

Two pages improvedI improved the FAQ part available here, giving titles and adding some more content.I am currently working on the lyrics main page. I want to give you one better eye-looking on the opportunity for you to translate lyrics of your favorite bands and then, I would share on this website as long I have the green light from the band. The idea is where is an arrow means that is possible for you to translate into whatever language. Of course, it remains unofficial content but if it can help other people to understand lyrics, that is the main goal. I asked the band for lyrics yet available, completing the tab there.
Discord Probably my survey happened on a bad moment and then, I 'll do another one in Facebook.

Here is the idea :
Discord, an app available on PC and mobiles, makes possible the making of text and vocal rooms in a rather safe way. Discord is mainly known in the gaming branch but …
