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.
In the summer of 2018, the Netherlands and Belgium get to know Mountain Eye in their ‘Take Control Tour’. At the same time, debut album ‘Roads Uncharted’ is recorded. The album is released in January 2019 with a release show in legendary Dutch venue Melkweg Amsterdam. In the ensuing six months, the album is streamed over 70,000 times, and the band wins several band contests. Mountain Eye is heading for the top.
