2014: First formation as MiLLaEditFirst known as MiLLa, the band debuted at Shibuya REX on May 21, 2014, where they released their first (and only) live-limited one-coin single, Misery. Bassist KO-YA, who was their support member at the time, joined the band later on August 25 at their live at Shibuya duo MUSIC EXCHANGE. After a good run, the band would cease activities on December 30, after their live at Ikebukuro BLACK HOLE.
2015: Mediena kicks off the new yearEdit
On January 1, 2015, the band would spring up once more under a different name, メディーナ (mediena). They held a demo live at Ikebukuro BLACK HOLE on January 9, and a formal live later on the 22nd at Takadanobaba AREA, where they were also the opening act for the Ains label presents live event Dark in the Dark-Vol.011-. The event also featured the Ains band, 黒百合と影 (kuroyuri to kage), plus other bands such as アルルカン (Arlequin), DADAROMA, and エルム (Elm).
The newly-formed Mediena would later release their first demo single, 奈落ヘノ階段 (naraku e no kaidan) to indies stores on April 29. They would then hold their oneman live, 輪廻転生, at Ikebukuro BLACK HOLE on March 23, as bassist Riku would depart afterwards due to personal reasons. He was quickly replaced by support member Tooka the next day - Tooka would then become an official member later in August.
On September 18, Mediena participated at MALISEND's presents live, 契約の儀-終焉への誘い-, at Meguro Rock May Kan, alongside other bands DAMY, Minerva, Miss Rainy, Lydiar, and VENDETTA.
