Merendine which formed in 1995 as a five piece have etched their niche on the Metal scene in Italy. In 2010 with the departure of guitarist David Bisson, the band stood as a four piece creating a different element that transcended into a NEW sound and a NEW outlook. "You can't stop progression", stated Zanda Zandarin (Vocals). "We just became tighter and stronger as a four piece. We are a family, we made a strong album. That alone is a testament to what we can do together. I'm proud of it and nothing will change that", Guitarist Luca Sigers Securo stated. "This record is what we're proud of! Luigi outdid himself and made something brilliant," commented bassist Dario Bianchi. "Having endorsements with Vic-Firth, D'Adarrio, Evans and Planet Waves has also helped us", stated drummer Luca Cerardi. "Having people believe in you is a comforting feeling."
Merendine toured last winter as direct support for Doro Pesch in Europe. They had a 4 week run which brought them through Germany, Spain, France, The Czech Republic, Italy and Luxemburg. The band also toured with Krypteria and Doro prior in 2008. The band did off festival dates with Motorhead in 2009 as well. Fans in Europe and North America have embraced the band. Drawing inspiration is something that every band needs to develop. No one knew that better than Luigi Stefanini. Merendine signed a worldwide management deal with Skateboard Marketing Ltd. in New York in December of 2011. They are gearing up for a full Summer European tour after the release.
