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.
Mountain Eye released the demo’s ‘Take Control’ and ‘Singularity’ in spring 2018, and started playing gigs in their ‘Take Control Tour’ in the same period. They soon booked their first success by winning the Battle of Hox 2018 band battle.
