Eternal Flight


ETERNAL FLIGHT rose from the ashes of the band Dream Child, and was formed in 2001 by lead vocalist Gérard Fois. A s/t demo, released in 2002, paved the way to the signing with the Italian label Cruz Del Sur Music, where the band released its debut album “Positive Rage” (2004) in Europe and America, as well as in Japan via Spiritual Beast. Gigs with Paragon and Nightmare followed. The album “Under The Sign Of Will” followed in 2007 and was released via the French label Pervade Productions, and was also released in the US via Nightmare Records, which allowed the band to cement and expand their fan base there.

The band once again played numerous gigs and even appeared on TV. In late 2011, “Diminished Reality Elegies And MysterieS (D.R.E.A.M.S)” was distributed in Europe and Japan via the German label YesterRock, and was also released in North America. Drummer Ricardo Confessori (ex-Angra, ex-Shaman) was featured on the album as well as other guest musicians on lead guitars, like Chris Caffery (Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Mark McGee (Luvplanet, ex-Vicious Rumors, ex-Gregg Allman Band) and Rob Love Magnusson (Dynazty). After some concerts in 2012, the band embarked on an European tour for 3 weeks as the opener for the US cult metal band Circle II Circle and Nightmare from France! In 2015, ETERNAL FLIGHT returned with a new line-up and recorded 3 new songs with none other than John Macaluso (Labÿrinth, ex-Yngwie J. Malmsteen, ex-Ark, ex-Riot V) on drums! The songs were shared on social media and the band also shot a video for one of the songs, “Angels Of Violence” – and received great feedback! The band also revealed a new look – customized flying suits – to have an original visual identity on stage.

In August 2016, the band entered the studio to record the 4th album, and was joined by a new drummer. 10 songs were recorded at Gérard’s studio, Morphoenix. In August 2017, the band proudly signed a worldwide deal with the legendary German label Massacre Records for the release of their 4th album, “Retrofuture”!

Once a metal head, always a metalhead. My parents thought it would only be a period, but they were wrong. I quit to explain the beauty of metal music to others that are not into metal, because it is something you can't tell in words... It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
