The story of Mindfield started back in 1994 when guitarist Rainer Sickler got together with 4 other guys. Due to a couple of line-up changes it took two years until the first demo "Fields Of Vision" 1996 came out. Gigs with band like Totenmond, Night In Gails or Crosscut and also positive reactions in the German metal press helped to spread the name of Mindfield.
"The Final Piece" recorded 1997 (produced by Andy Classen) finally brought Mindfield to their first deal with Gutter Records in 1999. The debut CD "Deviant" (once more produced by Andy Classen) released in 2000 was pretty successful in the German metal press and also in the international underground. Further gigs with bands like Crack Up as well Die Apokalyptischen Reiter or Solstice brought their tunes to a bigger audience.
Through out the years Mindfield developed their sound in order to create some kind of modern melodic but also harsh and atmospheric music. "Below" (their upcoming album on Lifeforce Records) is to be seen as the latest step of the bands musical "evolution" The record proofs that there are many ways to play really hard as well as catchy modern music besides the category of "Nu Metal".
