Mountain Eye is a metal band founded in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. After playing in an alternative rock band, guitarists Tim and Omar decided to start a project in which metal is made accessible to the general public by adding influences from hard rock, alternative and funk.
In the summer of 2017, the guitar duo was complemented by three young, experienced and creative musicians. First of all, vocalist Arthur joined the band. In the same month, bass player Kieft, with roots in funk and jazz, and rock drummer Matthijs joined the band as well. Catchy songs with heavy guitar riffs and compelling vocal lines soon became the trademark of the band, with which it tries to reboot the once popular nu metal scene in their own innovative way.
During 2018, Mountain Eye toured the Netherlands and Belgium in their ‘Take Control’ Tour, and won the Battle of Hox band battle. In the meanwhile, they recorded their debut album ‘Roads Uncharted’, that was released on January 28, 2019. The album was presented in the legendary Melkweg venue in Amsterdam.
