Syros... we are coming!

It's been a long -ok not so long after all-, with no updates in here right? Well we have wisely spent the past weeks composing new material, so we now have a grand total of six songs of our own to present -Eclipse is the name of the newest one-. Moreover we have decided to enter the studio and start recording our stuff in order to complete the puzzle for a release somewhere in 2012. as our songs are growing up in our hands and ears and as they are more than two or three now, we have decided to leave the plan of a demo behind. We have already started recording setting the goals for a release that would contain all our stuff -the one that is already composed and the future stuff to come-. We have not set up a specific plan about this release yet, we just compose and record, so it is more than obvious than many music from Mourning Star in the near future, for the format and the way of this release... stay tuned.

Live shows speaking we have to cancel our show at Creta Run 3 Festival on Matala, Crete, Greece, some difficulties with our general time schedule make it not possible to happen for us. We would like to hanks all the guys of the festival fr their support and who knows... maybe we can do it next year.

A few days have left for the Hermoupolis Indie Rock Festival 5 in Syros, Cyclades, Greece and no folks this is not cancelled, so we are going to hit the beautiful Cyclades Island soon. Be sure not t miss the second show of Mourning Star and yes this will be the one where we going to play the new songs for the first time, so you got one more reason to come except the beautiful Syros beaches, the beer and the girls.

More info about the fest can be found here: http://syrosrocks.blogspot.com/

On The Road (again?)...


6th
and 13th of August 2011. I guess those dates you will be -or you would want to be- on some kind of beach. This is cool. We will be on stage (after the morning swim). 6th of August will be the last day of Hermoupolis Indie Rock Festival on Hermoupolis, Syros, Greece. 13th August will be one of the days of Creta Run Festival 2011 on Matala, Crete, Greece. Posters and details to follow. We do not ask you to come and see us but you can still book those wonderful places for your summer vacations - and the dates are great right?-, this way you will come to the show as well. Stay tuned for more.

Sound & Vision






By the time you are reading those lines we have already completed our fifth -and newest- song called Stealer Of Souls, we surely want to play it live and yes it is a fact that we can not wait for the next show -which is already booked for 6th of August on Syros Island -located on Cyclades, Greece-, we are also open for invites for a show during July 2011.

Meanwhile you can check out the first two songs of our first live, -we did four songs in total-. We are still looking for good sources so if you were there filming, get in touch with the band, the rest of the stuff will be on line soon. We would like to thanks our friend Vaios for those two grabs. Songs are: Rise Of The Black Sun & Vortex (Daughter Of The Stars), listen to them and leave a comment if you want, we sure want to read your opinion anyway.

More To Come...

Tuesday afternoon found us back on our rehearsal place where we completed our first cover song. We want to have more stuff to present for the next show and a cover of a favorite tune was a good idea before we lay our hands to new musical ideas, that would give birth to new songs. Of course we are not going to tell you which song we did, you going to find out yourself by coming to our next live. Speaking of forthcoming shows we are going to play in the next Indie Rock Festival 5 in Syros Island (Cyclades-Greece). More info about this would be available soon but we are nothing more than happy to play there simply because we will have the chance to swim in the great beaches of Syros Island :P. We will try to arrange some more shows for the summer, they say it is the season of live shows, we say it is the season of beers. If we can have them both it is a good deal.

Chapter III

Our first live show ended founding us happy and drunk at the end of the night so it should be a good one, right? We had a really good time up there (yeas on stage) and from what we have heard and seen the people attended the show had a great time as well. If you were there you can judge by yourselves and if not you still wait to hear those tunes by Mourning Star, right? This is the next step dudes, we have get to work to bring the music to your ears. Meanwhile we would like to share another big thank you to the two bands that played with us that night namely Universe217 and Stray Highways. It was a good shot guys and we want more.


We are in the process of collecting all the videos from the show, putting them together picking the stuff to be uploaded in here. It is very important for us to share our music around but since we have not finished the recordings of our first demo (?) the stuff from this live show can be a good reference. It is just a matter of -very little- time until you would be able to share with us the music and the picture (yeap this is called video). "Rising Of The Black Sun", "Vortex - Daughter Of The Stars", "Upon The Waves Of Sorrow" and "Mourning star" are the four songs we played and the four songs we have composed in total. For sure there will be more stuff to come, so stick to your guns :)

Chapter II

























By the time you are reading those lines, we are already recording our first demo. We shall give it for free into our live shows, we are not good at descriptions but I guess if you like Doom Metal you will feel like home under the music of Mourning Star.

There is also the first show coming. 21th of May on Rethymno City. For those far away from Rethymno or Crete this could mean nothing. For us is our very first show and we would like to welcome everyone around. We are playing with Stray Highways and Universe217. The Strays are our local little heroes of Rock N Roll, as far as Universe217 well it is really difficult to get their stuff described on words so better listen to the music.

We hopefully going to film and record the show, so get ready for music and stuff online -tgether with the demo tracks-.

Meanwhile you can visit the facebook page of Skies Cultural Association on FaceBook. The guys are organising the rethymno show. From there you would be linked to other interest stuff.


Chapter I















We have been messing with the new band for some months now, but now we guess it is the time we should start getting some stuff on the web chaos. After all we got something to present and yes this is our very first show that will happen in around one week, so start counting. The band started on Rethymno city, Crete, Greece. No big deal, it is that we wanted to fill our hours with some music. Jamming turned to songs and new songs will drive us on stage.

There was a pretty much of the "I have did it before" thing for all the members. Chris and Kostas were together on Ominous Sky, Manos on Rain Novelty, Giannis and Vaios on various local bands in Rethymno. So? Yes it is the same old story dudes...

Nikos from Bloodcult -hail- was fast enough so we have a log before we even have a demo. But the posters for the first show have to be designed...
