Crystal Eyes was formed in 1992 by Mikael Dahl and Niclas Karlsson to keep the legacy of Heavy Metal set in the eighties by Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Accept etc. A strong underground reputation was built during the mid-90's with four official demo-tapes. In 1996 Crystal Eyes launched their official website and got to open for Blind Guardian the same year.

Crystal Eyes was formed in 1992 by Mikael Dahl and Niclas Karlsson to keep the legacy of Heavy Metal set in the eighties by Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Accept etc. A strong underground reputation was built during the mid-90's with four official demo-tapes. In 1996 Crystal Eyes launched their official website and got to open for Blind Guardian the same year. The German label CLM offered a deal in 1998 and the debut "World Of Black And Silver" was released the year after.
The follow up "In Silence They March" was released in 2000 but after some difficulties Crystal Eyes broke with CLM and signed with Swedish label Heavy Fidelity. The third album "Vengeance Descending" was recorded and mixed in Crystal Eyes own studio and featured guest vocals from former Chroming Rose vocalist Gerd Salewski and Lost Horizon vocalist Daniel Heiman. This record received even better reviews than the first two and got Crystal Eyes on the Sweden Rock Festival in 2003. Mikael Dahl who had been the guitarist, vocalist and songwriter since the beginning now felt it was time to "do a Kai Hansen" and take a step back from the microphone.
The fourth album "Confessions Of The Maker" was released in 2005 and featured former Lost Horizon singer Daniel Heiman on guest vocals. This year Crystal Eyes was the opening act on Sweden Rock Festival and this became the only appearance with Daniel who went on to form his own band. The search for a new permanent singer began and by the end of the year the perfect voice was found in the Danish vocalist Nico Adamsen. The band decided to take a step up in the production and let the mix for the next record be handled by a professional. ...show less
