The band, 300 WISHES, was started in January 2011 by the idea of a collaboration between Melaina Mulder (singer) and Harry Loisios (guitarist) and so they decided to kick off the search for musicians to be part of 300 WISHES. When the band was supplemented with Bjorn Velthof (drums) and Mickeal Schuurman (bass), the band is ready to start officially.
Beautiful melody and instrumentals interspersed with the vocals is the idea. The genre is therefore described as a melodic guitar oriented gothic/metal band with neo-classical input. Main difference with bands of the genre is that the music is very much alive. Just what we found in other genres of music and consequently 300 WISHES certainly is a salient identity that will appeal to music lovers of various genres.
HARRY LOISIOS about 300 WISHES:
"300 WISHES is more than just a band. It is an electrifying storm of sound. Passion for music is waiting to be shared with all of you. Join 300 WISHES..."
MICKEAL SCHUURMAN about 300 WISHES:
"If you're hot and sexy (like us), just give us a rub. We'll grant you 10 times more wishes then Aladdin's Genie did"
BJÖRN VELTHOF about 300 WISHES:
"This is a band that makes adrenaline run through your veins and so it keeps you begging for more. For as long as we play music around the globe our combined forces will make sure it slaps you in the face and keeps your head banging.''
MELAINA MULDER about 300 WISHES:
"Music is a place where we can rest our senses. ''The stages of our souls'', when shared, it strengthens us. Telling we are not alone in this ''march we can't prepare.''
