Minneapolis, Minniesota-based singer Melissa Ferlaak (AESMA DAEVA, VISIONS OF ATLANTIS, ECHOTERRA) has joined forces with guitarist Will Maravelas (WE ARE LEGION) in a brand new death/doom metal project called PLAGUE OF STARS. The two discussed the initial formula then brought in two additional scientists, bassist Christopher Quinn (AESMA DAEVA, A WHISPER IN THE NOISE, DODD) and drummer Aaron Lanik (WE ARE LEGION).
A press release states: “Initially concocted were two surprising reactions, ‘In The Pines’ which replicated earlier known reactions produced by Lead Belly and ‘When Morning Came’, an original design that surprised those who came in contact with it. These two strains of the virus would soon be engineered to include multiple strains of the infection to be released into the public in June 2013 following a top secret campaign by private donors, who believe this biochemical weapon is the answer to the struggles we currently face. The plague to be remembered in history….if history continues to exist….the PLAGUE OF STARS.”
