„Die Offenheit im Umgang mit dem Publikum scheint mir die beste Voraussetzung für erfolgreiche Shows im grösseren Rahmen zu sein. Einem jeden Fan der hiesigen Metalszene möchte ich wärmstens empfehlen, Ophelia's Eye im Hinterkopf zu behalten. Der Abend scheint recht schnell zu vergehen. Das erste Album wird viele Fans des Melodic Death Metal aber auch generell Freunde des Härteren überzeugen. Unbedingt auf dem Radar behalten!“

Bandname

Ophelia’s Eye, a Melodic Death Metal Band, previously known as Project Penny and later on Red Fire Dragon.


As both names occured to be to generic and not fitting the band’s music the band decided to change the name to Ophelia’s Eye based on the novel “The Sandman” from E. T. A. Hoffmann.

The story is about the traumatic childhood experience of the student Nathanael which makes its way to the surface through the surprising encounter with the weather glass dealer Coppola. He believes he recognizes the devilish lawyer Coppelius, who is responsible for his father's death. When the beautiful but quite Olimpia captivates him, he loses himself more and more between delusion and reality.

To make the name sound rounder, Olimpia is called Ophelia in the band name.


Through our songs the listeners should also lose the connection to reality - at least for a while.
