From the moment Eyestare ceased to exist 20 years ago, I felt the need to work on the songs we made back then, because we never recorded them decently, and I do believe in the potential of those songs.
The demo CD "Unknown Perimeters", which we recorded in 2012, 2013 and 2014 with Structure Seven, already contains two of those old songs, namely "Trapped in the Shadowland" and "Fading Dignity", but there are still 6 songs left.
At the end of November 2014, I came into contact with drummer Olivier Droin, a sympathetic Frenchman who is among others influenced by the first generation hard rock drummers like John Bonham, Ian Paice and Bill Ward, which I believe is a very good thing!
Two months later we came into contact with Ernst Roza. Ernst plays guitar in the band Fûgelsang, and he thought it would be nice to be a singer for a change.
The bass player of Fûgelsang, Nico Vogelsang, also joined in, and on January 28, 2015, we practiced for the first time with the four of us.
In October 2015 the cooperation with Olivier, Ernst and Nico stopped, but we're still good friends, and I want to thank them sincerely. Cheers guys!
From now on it's Ric, Sebastiaan, Henrike and Henri.
