300 days after the departure of then new vocalist Marco Sandron (Fairyland/Pathosray), Eden's Curse has revealed the new lineup, video presentation of same and a snippet of the new single "Evil & Divine." The song will appear on the new album "Symphony Of Sin," which will be issued in October via AFM Records.
The new lineup sees the addition of vocalist Nikola Mijic and PowerQuest keyboarist Steve Williams. As it stands currently, Eden's Curse is:
Nikola Mijic - Vocals
Thorsten Koehne - Guitar
Paul Logue - Bass
Pete Newdeck - Drums
Steve Williams - Keyboards
Mijic 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 Delta.
He commented: "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 guys"!
Drummer Pete Newdeck commented on the addition of the new vocalist: "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 move forward."
Bassist Paul 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."
Guitarist Thorsten 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."
As for the addition of Steve Williams, replacing Alessandro Del Vecchio, bassist Paul 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."
Williams, 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!"
