Making a name for themselves through many triumphs in international band competitions, this chance of a lifetime was a turning point for the band and the beginning of an international musical career that prompted them to sign a worldwide recording contract with Napalm Records.
In 2005, naio ssaion completed work on their Napalm Records debut album to be released on 25 November. A refined mix of modern and powerful rock songs featuring spellbinding vocals and sensational violin arrangements, "Out Loud" remains true to the band's mantra: ?If we don't like to play it live, it won't make it on the album?.
