TIGER STAR / Bio
TIGER STAR is no doubt a ".. major rock talent from Toronto, and is one of the fresh promising jewels in the Canadian rock music that is rocking the scene,” according to Live Music Metropolis.
In the sweltering summer of 2009, 5 octave vocalist Mila Star created Tiger Star as a way to express her desire to perform the music she feels deeply about. Teaming up with Cam Carnage as songwriting and producing partners they created a heavy blend of rock, metal and elements of pop to create a sensational modern form of metal, which could change the minds of many music lovers. Armed with a batch of their own songs, they surged onto the Canadian music scene with heavy and energetic performances alongside greats such as Vince Neil, Thor, Michael Monroe, Famous Underground, Faster Pussycat, Cauldron, Kobra and the Lotus, Sister Sin, Genitorturors, and many more artists. Tiger Star is vocalist Mila Star, Cam Carnage on guitar, Sean Striker on drums and Johnny B. on bass.
Their tracks “Lolita” about wanton desire quickly climbed up and stay on the charts of Indie Love Radio in Canada, an internet-based radio station which garners millions of listeners a month. This track is also featured in full in the grindhouse-style horror film Black Eve, in which Mila Star and her band also make appearances in. LMM also adds “…where so many bands chose they easy path of writing flat songs void of climax or substituted guitar skills with 3 chords, vocals with growls Tiger star choose the difficult path of Employing a style of complex style of Iron Maiden/New classical style melodies with upbeat riff and a female vocalist with a wide vocal range and a 21st century touch. The band’s front woman has a 5 Octave range and she is not afraid to use it. ``
"Lolita" is also featured in full - in the indie horror film Black Eve - which also features cameos by members of Tiger Star; including costumes which Mila Star designed under her fashion label Metal Star. The movie is slated to be available on DVD later in 2012.
Dubbed as the "Marilyn Monroe of Heavy Metal" by fans, Mila's voice is sited as "hardcore and silky smooth" by Expressions magazine; as Hellbound says that she is "impressive." In addition to the "precision" of their guitars and bass, TIGER STAR's unique blend of metal and rock is enough to get even the heaviest of metal heads wanting more.
Tiger Star’s debut album dropped worldwide on the net on January 13, 2012 winning raves from music lovers and fans alike. LMM states Tiger Star’s debut efforts “that this record composition in production is close to an early "Iron Maiden" album quality. Mila's voice is a voice you might find as one in a million or one in 10 million......"
Indie label Cherryfire Records released Tiger Star's debut album on January 13, 2012, in which they recorded half at The Palace Room (Formerly EMI publishing studios) and at Carnage Studios, Mila Star wanted to ensure that fans received what they had been anticipating for during its fall and winter recording. As the main lyricists of the band she sings about kings and queens, battling for the soul, and turbulent love between people.
A modern twist to what sounds like a mix of the best of heavy rock and metal, TIGER STAR is destined to leave a deep unshakable impression to music loyalists.
