Through more than a decade, Chandeen have managed to artistically steer clear of the stereotype of ethereal music. Over the years, they have created a sound that is distinctly their own, and instantly recognisable. With Pandora's Box the band once again shows the spectacular, epic and also the calm, melancholic moments of their 12 years history. The album also contains the last two unreleased tracks and shows Chandeen's way of history from Shaded By The Leaves through Echoes. Harald Löwy: 'We choose the songs which describes our musical journey. They are bridges of our evolution which was everything else than continuous.' Chandeen was founded in 1990 by Oliver Henkel and Harald Löwy. Chandeen's first singer - of Iranian descendence - was Aline Akbari, who entered the band in 1991. The second singer, Antje Schulz, joined in 1992. Akbari and Schulz shared vocal responsibilities for the first two years. During the same year Oliver Rösch, founder of the world-wide famous label Hyperium Records heard Chandeen and offered a contract. The group went to record their first album Shaded By The Leaves, but without Aline Akbari who left the band some weeks before they signed their contract. The new singer was Catrin Mallon who sang with Antje Schulz on the first Chandeen album. In Autumn 1994 Oliver Henkel and Harald Löwy moved to Jutland, Denmark, for six weeks to compose and produce the second album Jutland. They created a deeply atmospheric album which had a lasting effect on the complete German underground scene. Ecki Stieg, the eye and the ear of the scene in 1995: With Jutland, Chandeen created an album which will be a benchmark for all other band in this genre. This is the best release in several years. The album reached Top Ten peak positions for more than 10 weeks in the German independent charts and until this day Jutland remains the most starling and unique of Chandeen's albums. However, new personal problems emerged within the band, problems which already existed during the record-session of Jutland. These problems resulted in Catrin Mallon and Oliver Henkel leaving the band in late 1994. In Spring 1995, vocalist Stephanie Härich joined the band. Six month later came the EP-CD, Light Within Time, followed in 1996 by the third album, The Waking Dream. Chandeen toured extensively in 1996 and became the spearhead of the German Heavenly Voices- Romantic scene. In 1997 Chandeen left Hyperium records and signed a new contract with SPV. One year later they released their fourth studio album Spacerider-Love At First Sight, with their new guitar player Florian Walther. It was no coincidence that the wide music-industry had begun to take notice of the potential of Chandeen's music, and in late 1998 the band filmed their first videoclip, Skywalking.. The clip got many plays at MTV and Viva for several weeks and Chandeen received a nomination for the German clip award. In Spring 1999 Chandeen began to tour again while Harald Löwy founded his own record label Kalinkaland Records and released the fifth album Bikes And Pyramids in Fall 2002, the last album to feature Stephanie Härich. They released their latest and sixth studio album Echoes in 2003. Echoes was the returning to Chandeen's roots: the meditative, romantic part of their music became the centre of their influence again. 'Echoes is an album full of energy ', Harald Löwy mention, 'it sparkles and glows and has the soul which we missed from our later works.' We've come full circle for Chandeen. We could say that Antje Schulz and Harald Löwy were Chandeen, because they may not be making music together anymore. But their songs live on beyond that, in a delicate, timeless way.
