History

The band was formed one early day of 1998 by Tomas W├Ąppling (vocals), Patrik Lund (guitars), Bo Pettersson (guitars), Peter Wiberg (bass) and Stefan Svantesson on drums. A demo called The Blood Of Mortals was recorded at Studio Mega and released and mailed to labels in October. To obtain success the band hires a keyboardist. The next demo was called Somewhere In Nowhere and after receiving a positive reply from the now-bankrupt Loud N' Proud label the band (with a new singer in tow) records its debut. Right after the recording Lund leaves the fold. The band plays some shows and splits up in 2001 when keyboardist Johansson and bassist Wappling leave.
Not too long thereafter though, the remaining members regroup and reform the band. With a promo CD out, Arise Records of Spain showed interest and the band signs with the company which announces a second album for October of 2002. In April 2002 The band went into Studio Underground and recorded its second album. After the recording Stefan Svantesson leaves and is replaced by another Crystal Eyes member in the form of Martin Tilander.
The band name is a play on a guitar's fret board and an imaginary and fantasy land.
