1997; Born for Bliss, existing since 1994, awakes with the overwhelming "Flowing with the Flue". The roots of this fact are placed over a decade ago. In those times the Dutch Born for Bliss-members Frank Weyzig and Willem van Antwerpen created thrilling sounds together with the still cultic (Clan of) Xymox. During the early, exiting period of this electronic-wave legend (mid till end of the 80’s), Frank and Wim have been involved with this band. From this period result the first two Xymox albums which are still classic highlights.

Since 1995 the third member of Born for Bliss is Remco Helbers. He found his way to Born for Bliss via the Dreamside and Love Like Blood on stage. With his very own style of playing the Chapman Stick, Remco adds a special dimension to the Born for Bliss-sound.

Together, this trio guarantees an ultimate seductive sound output which was proved impressively by their pre-released cd-single "Arabia" (for 'Nuclear Blast - Deathwish Office') in 1996. In that same year this single became an addicting club hit and made its way high into the German alternative charts.

We're back in 1997. Now, 'Flowing with the Flue' marks Born For Bliss' long desired long play-debut. "With Impressive elegance the band produced a couple of fascinating pearls. The sounding potpourri impresses with original songwriting, interesting arrangements and charismatic vocals. Already in the first week after its release, 'Flowing with the Flue' entered high into the German alternative album-charts".

In 1999, They finished the final recordings for their album "Between Living and Dreaming", mixed at the famous Impulse Tonstudio in Hamburg by J.P. Genkel, known for his work with 'Lacrimosa' and 'Cradle of Filth'. Soon after the final recordings of "Between Living and dreaming", the band disintegrated due to problems with their former management and record label and the album was never released.

In 2010, Frank Weyzig gave the band a new birth with the long anticipated release of the fore mentioned album “Between Living and Dreaming” on German label Echozone, followed in 2011 by the re-release of the first Born For Bliss album, 'Flowing with the Flue’, a remastered version of the 1997 album plus extra, never before, released remixes.

In 2013, Echozone released the Born For Bliss EP "Innocent". The first new recordings from the band since 1999.
