melodic metallers EDEN’S CURSE are delighted to announce their
new line up. Ending ten months of speculation after an arduous audition process,
the band are proud to announce Serbian vocalist Nikola Mijic as
their new front man. The introducing video can be viewed here:http://youtu.be/Epji9f5lKzs
from Senta, in the North of Serbia, Nikola is a
vastly experienced singer despite his tender years. For the past ten years he
has been fronting Serbian outfit Alogia and more
recently Hungarian Prog Rockers Dreyelands, who
released their debut album on Lion Music in 2010. In 2008 he also featured
heavily on the Prog Rock project album Expedition
happy Nikola said “I’m really honored to be part of the
Metal journey of Eden’s Curse with their new upcoming album that is coming out
on 4th October and I’m looking forward to rock with you
Newdeck commented “For me, when I heard a lot of the auditions,
Nik’s was the one that stood out. It stood out mainly because of it’s
originality. His voice was strong, it was soulful and he had something different
to offer. That’s really why I championed him because I think he could offer
something different, change the face of the band and possibly help this band
Logue added “When Nik sent his audition of Evil &
Divine that’s when we really began to sit up and take notice and say
that this guy was something special. He is the complete package“.
Koehne enthused “He’s just an amazing talent, one of the most
amazing singers I’ve seen in recent times. He’s just so versatile in what he can
do and he just fits the band perfect because with Eden’s
Curse we’re very diverse, as far as the music, so there’s not just one
particular style that we are doing. So we were really looking for a singer that
could keep up with that and have a range in his
vocals. Nikola is just perfect because he can do so many
things, from blues to metal stuff and everything in between“.
joining the EDEN’S CURSE ranks is Welsh keyboard wizard
and Powerquest main man Steve Williams who
replaces Alessandro Del Vecchio.
Logue commented “Sadly we we part company with our brother
Alessandro on a truly positive note as his career as a mixing engineer and a
producer has really taken off, meaning less and less time could be devoted to
the Eden’s Curse cause. We will miss him dearly as a friend and
a musician and we wish him nothing but the utmost success. We firmly believe he
has the talent to go right to the very top! He will always be considered a part
of the Eden’s Curse family and is cursed for life“.
a former member of Dragonforce, commented “It was a real
thrill to be asked by Paul and the boys to get involved in Eden’s
Curse. I’ve been a fan for a long time, I’ve known the guys a while and
it’s great to be here getting myself right cursed I can tell you“!
Logue further commented “I’ve
known Steve for a while and when Ale left he recommended we
look at Steve. It was very easy choice for us, as we were already good friends
and with Powerquest calling it a day it was a perfect time in
both our careers to join forces. Steve is a smashing player and
one of life’s true gentlemen. He is an utter joy to have on board and I am
genuinely excited to see what we can produce together in the years to come as I
am a big fan of his songwriting“.
band can also confirm that their long awaited fourth album “Symphony Of
Sin” will be released by AFM Records on 4th
will be preceded by a digital single “Evil &
Divine“, for which the band shot a video for on location at the famous
St. Andrews in the Square location in Glasgow, under the direction of Ryan
Priddy and his team at Independent Element.
