April 18th 2008 (Lion Music)
“1994: THE AFTERGLOW” is a slice of
historyand its gives us great pride to be able to
with Lion Music to offer Mind's Eye's little heard
1994 debut album “The Afterglow”.
by Daniel Flores and re-packaged with all new artwork
by artist Carl-André Beckston (Monowasp),
the album is wrapped up with a variety of bonus
features (including the bands debut video –
Castle Of Eternity), all showing the humble beginnings
of the band.
the first ever release by Mind's Eye, this is a
genuine chance to get to know the band as they started
their career. Back then the bands core of Daniel
Flores and Johan Niemann along with original singer
German Pascual and guitarist Fredrik Grunberger
proved they already knew that they wanted to show
the world that good music CAN be created with discipline
and emotion. Sounds like a paradox? Not for Mind's
musicianship and song writing on “1994: The
Afterglow” belies the bands tender years at
the time, Daniel and Fredrik where 18, German was
20 and Johan was only 15. Musically the band had
the same goal as they do today. What they didn’t
have back then was the experience and knowledge
they have today, yet this album shows the unique
seeds for future works and any listener will be
hard pressed not to appreciate the talent on offer
even today some 14 years on from original release.
: The Afterglow" is the start of the musical
adventure of Mind's Eye.
