art rock, very melodic, varied genres
Alias Eye was founded in late 1998 when Philip Griffiths, Matthias Richter, Frank Fischer and Ludwig Benedek, who had been playing together for over four years, teamed up with keyboarder Vytas Lemke. After writing a repertoire of songs, the band recorded their first CD Beyond The Mirror in 1999, which was very well received by the international press.
In sping 2000, the band was brought into contact with the dutch label DVS Records who signed Alias Eye in November of that year. Work on Alias Eye's debut album "Field of Names" began immediately; an adept producer was found in Christian Schimanski, who had a grasp of the sound and feel the band was aiming for.
The album was finally completed in March 2001 after 5 long months at Blue Sky Studio in Southern Germany. Encompassing 10 songs and clocking at a total of 54 minutes, "Field of Names" represents the essence of Alias Eye's music, a diverse collection of tunes from a variety of different genres, ranging from rock, pop, funk, jazz to classical. So far, "Field of Names" as had excellent reviews from all over the world, gaining the status of "album of the month" in many music magazines/webzines. alias eye will continue to promote the album live; an important concert will be 2nd Eclipsed Festival in Aschaffenburg on the 27th of October, where the band will be playing together with "The Flower Kings" from Sweden and "mostly Autumn" from England.
