The cover artwork was once again created again by Thomas Ewerhard (EDGUY, AVANTASIA, JORN) and marks the return of a familar face in “Eve,” who previously graced EDEN’S CURSE‘s debut album cover.
Hailing 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 Delta”.
Said Nikola: “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!”
Added EDEN’S CURSE drummer Pete Newdeck: “For me, when I heard a lot of the auditions, Nik‘s was the one that stood out. It stood out mainly because of its 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.”
Stated EDEN’S CURSE bassist Paul Logue: “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.”
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.”
Added Logue: “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 POWER QUEST 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.”
