Imagine the perfect blend of Swedish metal and New York hardcore… You can’t? Then you better listen to EYELESS, the newest French sensation! At the turn of the new millennium, the French metal scene was all about nu-metal. But a violent musical beast was about to rise…

Eyeless was born in 1999, fed with melodic death and hardcore music, and blindly determined to crush it all. Their first EP, Self Inflicted Torture, was just a first bite of what they had to offer, but still it gave Eyeless a chance to share the stage with bands like Crytopsy, Dying Fetus and Vader to name just a few. In 2002, Eyeless releases a second EP, When Shadows Seduce, and thanks to it, is the winner of Roadrunner France contest “Ondes de Choc”, rightfully acclaimed as “best newcomer” on the French metal scene.

As one can imagine, concert offers flew after this, leading eventually to the main support act of French rock stars Lofofora, at the mythic venue of La Cigale in Paris. After so much noise, a label is easily found and the first Eyeless album, Path to the Unknown, is released early 2004, to press accl.. “The cocktail Eyeless made for you will blow you away” (Hard N’Heavy), “Eyeless music will cleanse your ears for good” (Rock Sound).

The following tour (with label mates Eths) will bring them to every main city for a sold-out “tour de France”. Some bands would rather rest after so much effort, but not Eyeless: the band is eager to write new songs for their second album. But one last touring opportunity shows up, that will delay the writing for a few more weeks: a European tour with Misery Index in April 2005!

Finally back home, Eyeless is ready to unleash the fury they kept for the new album. The songs are recorded during the summer at Trendkill Studio, near Montpellier (South of France). Danny, singer of Angel Crew and long time friend of Eyeless, was down there on holidays, enjoying the sea and the sun. So, very naturally, he ended up recording one song for the new album (“Crushing All My Enemies”).

During the fall, the band flew to Denmark to mix the songs with producer Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Hatesphere, Dagoba). Being in Denmark, they also took the opportunity to get Jacob Bredahl (Hatesphere) to sing on the song “Cursed”. The eleven songs are now ready, the album is completed. While shopping the album to labels, Eyeless is invited to give a song from their first album to the Listenable Records compilation Revolution Calling, alongside the best of the French metal scene (Scarve, Gojira…).

Summer 2006: Season of Mist signs the band, seduced by their raw energy. The Game of Fear is a new start for Eyeless with a more metal and melodic sound but still a hardcore flavor. Such a musical jewel needed a fitting box. The artwork was done by Chad Michael Ward, known for his work with Static-X, Fear Factory and Marilyn Manson. Now, please, don’t be afraid: open the box and don’t worry, this Game of Fear will be played for your pleasure only…

But the new album the game of fear needed to be discovered live. So the band well rehearsed took the road again. They shared the stage with the most famous french bands (Lofofora, Dagoba...), shared the stage in famous venues (Zenith, Secret place...) with Marylin Manson and Devil driver and they made the french tour with Bullet for my valentine. Eyeless found the time to make a video clip programmed on MTV2, MCM and M6 Rock.

In the beginning of 2008 Eyeless bolt locked the doors of the Trendkill studio and started to write a new page of their book. A new way of composing tracks was taken and more than just album was recorded. After a hard selection, the new tunes just needed a master producer to follow the direction which was taken by Eyeless. Jason Suecof and Mark Lewis at the Audio Hammer studios in Florida were the guys who get the job done perfectly.

The mix and the mastering filled the waiting of all the guys in the band. 12 new pages were written, The Diary was written and you need to check this out to discover the perfect blend of French metal and American kick ass producing.
