The Maledia project - dark-gothic-metal band - takes shape in 2000 from an idea of the band’s manager and drummer Mechanix and Maleun the bassist. In 2001, Maledia is introduced to, guitarist Daniele and Marco the Keyboarder. Maledia kept on, the searching of the singer didn' t seem to have a positive outcome. Many tries and voices were listened on their songs, but nobody was able to convince them.. until they met Loo. They loved her VOICE instantly, and she was what they were looking for: wonderful voice, incredibly vocal extension, another music lover. (Loo - soprano-voice and live performance for DAEMONIA, Claudio Simonetti's horror band !) A young singer, a lyric soprano able to passing from properly lyric songs to light ones.
Love for music joined the boys together, holding them and making them accomplices, it was the right moment. Always loving the symphonic sound mixed with hard rock/metal, gothic harmonies and dark/horror variations, they found their way; the union and perfect fusion of the dark/horror with the clean and gentle, METAL mixed with pure melody.
Finally music: every members gave space and force to their own potentialities; many songs were born, in less than a year almost 10 songs were composed. Two years of concerts in several premises of Rome and Italy to get experience, and then because MALEDIA live of STAGE.. The recording of the first demo didn't arrive soon for a their choise, waiting for a better work...Black Heaven.. was born at the end of 2003, in a winter evening; ..Nightfall.. and ..Hopeless Desire... These tracks pushed to the recording.
