From: Aarau, Switzerland
Genre: Melodic Death Metal
Active: 2019 - today
Ophelia's Eye offers a mix of the Gothenburg Melo-Death and Metalcore from the 2000s.
The band really got started in 2020 and since then Ophelia's Eye can already look back on various concerts, e.g. at Z7 at "Riff Against War" or together with "Pro-Pain" as well as several live streams, despite Corona.
Ophelia’s Eye is based on Olimpia’s Eyes from the novel “The Sandman” by E.T.A. Hofmann.
Olimpia for us is a characterization for the goal we want to achieve with our music:
In the course of the book, Nathaniel's perception of Olimpia changes as he observes her through a pocket lens in her room: "But as he looked sharper and sharper through the glass, it was as if moist moonbeams were rising in Olimpia's eyes. It seemed as if only now the sight was ignited; more and more vividly and vividly the glances flamed." (page 28)
And toward the end of the story, Nathanel is enchanted by Olimpia. He calls her "heavenly-beautiful," admires her every day, and is desperate and driven by longing.
We, too, want to "enflame" the audience, bring them to life and cast a spell over them. Through our songs the listeners should also lose the connection to reality - at least for a while.
