Far Beyond (Germany) is a solo project from Eugen Dodenhoeft. He has released ‘The Bleeding Rose’ (2003 Demo), ‘An Angel’s Requiem’ (2005) and ‘Songs of Hope and Sorrow’ (2009). Another of his projects is Euphoreon where he collaborated with Matt Summerville (New Zealand) and released a self-titled album in 2011. The latest Far Beyond album sees Eugen enlist some guest musicians for ‘A Frozen Flame Of Ice’ (Sept 2016).
Whilst the earlier releases were described as melodic death metal, there has been a move towards gothic, progressive and dark symphonic metal due to the mix of vocal styles. Also the melancholic nature of the lyrics leads it down another path too.
