After touring the world and captivating audiences along the way with their previous bands, JADED STAR was founded by Maxi Nil (ex-Visions of Atlantis) and Raphael Saini (ex-Iced Earth). Joining forces with Kosta Vreto (Horizon's End, Wardrum) and Babis Nikou (Astral DNA, Opened Paradise, Dia Mageias), the band came into existence in 2013, instantly creating an arsenal of new tunes and beginning to tour that year.
Exploding with energy, JADED STAR's debut album, Memories From The Future, is now being readied for worldwide release, after US label Sensory Records brought the band into their family. Produced by Maxi Nil, mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordstrom at the legendary Fredman Studios in Sweden, the album showcases Maxi's electrifying vocals and the masterful drum work Saini is known for. Guitar hero Kosta Vreto with his unique finger strumming style eschews the plectrum in favor of a raw, organic sound that literally comes straight through his hands. Babis Nikou on the bass brings a solid foundation and the chemistry between he and Maxi as the song writing team provides emotion to match the power of the sound.
Issues Maxi Nil on the JADED STAR's signing with Sensory, "We can't put down in words how excited and happy we are for signing with Sensory records, since it's very hard to find these days labels who truly help, support and believe in their bands. Memories From The Future is an album full of energy and emotions and personally, it's the best thing I've done so far. We're all very proud of it and we can't wait to share it with the world. Make sure to listen to it as loud as you can!"
Adds Sensory/The Laser's Edge owner, Ken Golden, "Recently I was approached a new band called JADED STAR. As soon as I learned that Maxi Nil was the band's vocalist I was immediately intrigued. I was quite familiar with her work with Visions Of Atlantis so I knew this would be quality metal. When I heard the album I was totally blown away."
The elements are there, the forces have aligned, and the JADED STAR is ready to shine! Stand by for further info as Sensory prepares to release Memories From The Future on April 14th, 2015.
