B I O G R A P H Y

After Forever was formed in 1995, their music was mostly death metal orientated with classical influences. When Floor Jansen joined the band (1997), the music got more diverse but always contained metal elements.
After Forever recorded their first album Prison of Desire in 2000. This album was recieved very well in the press and gave the band the oppurtunity to develop.

In 2001 they released Decipher.
After Forever became internationally recognised as one of the best female fronted metal bands.
They toured through Europe and South Amerika with succes, performed in nearly every venue in Holland and recorded the mini album Exordium in 2003.This mini album also contained a mini dvd and gave a glimpse of the new album they would release in 2004:Invisible Circles.

The album is a concept album, this pretty serious concept (about a girl that has to grow up under difficult circumstances) suits the music very well and earned a lot of respect. Invisible Circles even reached 26th place in the Dutch Top 100 album charts and also recieved very good critics in Germany wich will be an important market for After Forever. It is very obvious that After Forever has grown a lot the past years and they will continue to grow.

Video for Ayreon's Come Back To Me, with Joost of After Forever looking endlessly amusing in his outfits while he plays keyboard.

I'm surprised people haven't known about this...

Taken from a translation done on the Femme Metal Board.

"After Forever celebrated its 10th birthday in 2006, a period during which the gothicband produced/wrote 4 albums + 8 cd-singles for Transmission Records. In March, the band left the label after 6 years. Transmission is now planning on releasing a compilation album Mea Culpa, a double-cd with the best tracks by AF, completed with new tracks, non-album tracks, alternative tracks, rarities and new remixes. Sharon Den Adel, Arjen Lucassen & Damian Wilson and Marca Hietala will also be featured on this album."

Apparently there's four new songs too and it's out soon!
