Based in Berlin, Germany, CRYSTAL PALACE started out in 1994, formed by Helmut Hirt (vocals),
Jurgen Hegner (guitars), Ralf Jaschob (guitars) and Jens Uwe Strutz (bass, vocals). For the
first few years of their existence various drummers and keyboardists helped out when needed;
for live shows as well as studio work. Their first full length album, "On the Edge of the World",
was issued in 1995; and promoted for the next few years. In 1998 Hirt left the band,
but by November of the same year he had been replaced by Tom Young (vocals).
Sven Brehm (drums) and Frank Kohler (keyboards) joined at the same time;
and this first permanent band line-up recorded and released the EP "Children of the Sun" in 1999.
In 2000 Young left, and after searching for a new frontman for some time,
it was decided that bassist Strutz should take care of the vocal duties instead;
and with that matter settled the band hit the studio again; resulting in 2001's
full length album "Demon in You". In 2002 a live EP with this line-up was issued,
"Unplugged by the Shadow", recorded at the wedding of drummer Sven Brehm.
Supporters of German icehockey club "EHC-Eisbaren Berlin" saw to it that their
next release would be a more high profile one, as the band won a contest through
internet voting to record a fan song for the club. The single "Eisbar'n Forever"
was the end result, released in 2003. At the same time Brehm left the band,
replaced by Mathias Wallasch (drums). He stayed just long enough to record
the full length production "Psychedelic Sleep", issued in 2003, before leaving.
Early in 2004 Hegner left as well, and the remaining band members started to involve themselves
in side projects for a while following this. Dagobert Wei? joined the band briefly in the same period
; but personal matters saw to it that he moved out of Germany, leaving
CRYSTAL PALACE without a drummer yet again. Early in 2004 the band lost their studio location as well,
and had to rebuild their recording studio at a new location. In November 2004 the new studio location
was up and running.
