Jaded Star, the dynamic Greece-based outfit featuring former members of Visions Of Atlantis, Iced Earth and many others, has divulged new details of their impending debut album, "Memories From The Future," which will be issued April 14th in North America and April 24th in Europe via Sensory Records.

With over forty-five minutes of Jaded Star's energetic forward-thinking melodic heavy metal, "Memories From The Future" was produced by vocalist Maxi Nil (ex-Visions Of Atlantis), mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordstrom at the legendary Fredman Studios in Sweden (Arch Enemy, At the Gates, Dimmu Borgir, In Flames, Opeth, etc.), and features ten brand new epic anthems.

Babis Nikou on the bass brings a solid foundation and the chemistry between he and Maxi as the songwriting team provides emotion to match the power of the sound.

Jaded Star, featuring ex-Visions of Atlantis vocalist Maxi Nil, Wardrum guitarist Kosta Vreto and ex-Iced Earth guitarist Raphael Saini, posted a preview clip for the upcoming debut album (in the player below).

"When there was nothing left but us, we came together. From distant corners of the scorched and ruined Earth, as remnant, persistent shards of life and light, we merged and melded in an atomic collision that shot us into the outer cosmos to safety and surety, where we rested and regrouped, determined to one day avenge our devastated home. But now the time has come to return. To begin again, to right the wrongs, to claim our place. We are older, wiser... yet we burn no less brightly. We re-enter our planet’s atmosphere...as a Jaded Star..."
