BORN FOR BLISS

April 1997; Born for Bliss, existing since 1994, awakes with the overwhelming "Flowing with the Flue". The roots of this fact are placed over a decade ago. In those times the dutch Born for Bliss-members Frank Weyzig and Willem van Antwerpen created thrilling sounds together with the still cultic (Clan of) Xymox. During the most exiting period of this electronic-wave legend (mid till end of the 80s), Frank and Wim have been involved in this band. From this period result the first two Xymox albums which are still classic highlights. Since 1995 the third member of Born for Bliss is Remco Helbers. He found his way to Born for Bliss via The Dreamside and Love Like Blood on stage. With his very own style of playing the Chapman Stick, Remco adds a special dimension to the Born for Bliss-sound. Together, this trio guarantees an ultimate seductive soundoutput which was proved impressively by their pre-released cd-single "Arabia" (for 'Nuclear Blast / Deathwish Office') in 1996. This single has become an addicting clubhit and made its way into the german alternative-charts. Those of you who have seen the band on their german tour together with The Dreadful Shadows, know that Born for Bliss stands for an impressive live-show! We're back in 1997. Now "Flowing with the Flue" marks Born for Bliss long desired longplay-debut. "With Impres- sive elegance the band produced a couple of fascenating pearls. The prickling melodic changes between melancholy and dynamic along with 80s-charme and 90s-scenery will not only electrify all wave-fans! The sounding potpourri impresses with original songwriting, interesting arrange- ments and charismatic vocals. Already in the first week after its release "Flowing with the Flue" entered high into the german alternative album-charts!" At the end of 1997 Nuclear Blast decides to quit their sub- division Deathwish Office. So Born For Bliss used the following year to write a new album and to look out for a new record company.
