By drawing in from As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage and Arch Enemy, OPHELIA’S EYE are here to shatter your world with their stunning blend of original modern metal. Although the initial roots and previous incarnations of the band can be traced back to before 2020, it wasn’t until just prior to last year that OPHELIA’S EYE solidified their line-up and refined their sound. Now with a formidable line up featuring: Michel Egloff-Sieber (Vocals), Remo Lemp (Lead Guitar), Corinne Ryter (Rhythm Guitar), Marco Schweizer (Drums), and Sandro Suter (Bass), OPHELIA’S EYE are braced to strike out.
The underground are catching on to OPHELIA’S EYE with many blogs and grass roots radio championing the band’s cause. Popular alterative website RGM revelled in the riff slingers’ previous single, Fight For Us, remarking: “Their sound is one of anger, animosity, and downright wickedness, and it’s amazing that it has the stamina to not drop from its intensity throughout.”
The Euro heavyweights’ new EP, Fight For Us, is a pleasing assault of the senses and everything that a metal record should be: Energetic, vigorous but still melodic, rhythmic, fast, and rammed with pounding riffs and powerful vocals. Guitarist Corinne Ryter discusses the record: “The goal of the EP is to take the listener on a musical journey with deep abysses and captivating riffs and show the band’s enthusiasm and versatility. The sound production was influenced by everyone from Parkway Drive and In Flames to Periphery.”
With live shows in the works and armed with a scorching EP, OPHELIA’S EYE will climb swiftly.
