Eilera and Loïc Tézénas both come from the metal music scene. After years of classical guitar and singing for Eilera and of Jazz guitar studies for Loïc, both of them took the path of melodic metal, mainly with the bands Kalisia and Chrysalis for Loïc and with Chrysalis for Eilera.
With Kalisia Loïc worked on a mini-CD which was released in 1996 by French label Adipocere Records. Their other recording was a concept-album.
In Chrysalis Eilera was one of the guitarists – together with Loïc ! - and she used to compose the music and write the lyrics. A mini-CD was recorded and released in 2000 (Adipocere Records) and the recording of an album had been planned for September 2003… Until Eilera decided in July 2003 to put an end to the Chrysalis adventure and focus on her work with Loïc.
With these two bands, Eilera and Loïc got a good experience of recording and of the stage, as well as great memories. Yet, they soon desired to see some different aspects of music and go further.
Their collaboration on a side-project called Bliss begins in 2000 with a first home-studio recording. The music at that time was a mixing of electronic sounds with metal music.
Several concerts follow the recording of the demo, revealing a personality which surprises and attracts the public's attention. Some musicians – cello player, guitarist, keyboards player and drummer – work with them on these occasions.
