MesajSubiect: THE 69 EYES   Sam Mai 31, 2008 8:28 pm

(Thanks to martin_gore_sound)

The 69 Eyes, a very dramatic goth metal band, formed in the early '90s in Helsinki's rock clubs , they take their influences from Elvis Presley, The Misfits, Guns ‘n’ Roses and a hefty dose of The Sisters of Mercy can all be heard throughout their music.
Other influences are Hanoi Rocks, The Cult, Alice Cooper ,Danzig Circus Of Power ,The Doors, Iggy Pop, The Ramones ,Type O Negative ,Billy Idol The Cramps, The Throbs, The Lords of the New Church

"WASTING THE DAWN" was The 69 Eyes's first international release on ROADRUNNER RECORDS. In 1999 with its unique concept of Gothic melancholy mixed with hi-energy rock'n'roll roots of the band, the album not only brought some long-waited fresh blood into the Gothic scene but also launched a new term to the media: GOTH'N'ROLL

The album's hit single, Wasting the Dawn paid tribute to the Doors' Jim Morrison. The video featured Ville Valo from HIM posing at a snowy cemetery as the ghost of Jim Morrison.

They first went gold in their native Finland with 2000's "Gothic Girl" single, and from then on their popularity increased.

In 2002 the band released Paris Kills, which would be known as their definitive album. It stayed for weeks as number 1 in Finland and went gold in a month, June 2002. In Germany it rose to number 35 in the first week. After touring Europe and Finland for months, a sold-out show at Helsinki's famous Tavastia was filmed and documented in November for use in the "Helsinki Vampires" DVD.

2004 saw the release of Devils, their 7th album, to which they toured the UK in support of Wednesday 13. Once again the album was number one in their native Finland and reached gold in a month. It was their first release on a big major label Virgin/EMI. Released in their native Finland in October 2004 later on in Europe through Virgin/EMI and in October 2005 in USA through 456 Entertainment it is also their 4th album to reach gold status and again another number one position on the Finnish TOP 40 album charts.

In 2005 The 69 Eyes played nearly one hundred shows around the world in fifteen countries, from Mexico to Japan, also in 2005 the band filmed their video for their biggest ever hit single Lost Boys in Hollywood and the Philadelphia area, directed by the band's friend and MTV superstar Bam Margera.

In 2006 The 69 Eyes toured for the first time in the USA.

In March 2007 their new album Angels, the sequel to their 2004 album Devils, was released , with an appearance of Apocalyptica on the song 'Ghost'.
"Angels" has gone gold in Finland. It also went straight to NUMBER ONE on the Finnish album charts on its first week after release!
