Fyeld established themselves as the most successful and hardest touring modern metal band in Bulgaria in the past 7 years. With over 100 concerts in Bulgaria and Romania between 2001-2004 they managed to get a solid following among the open minded metal fans and sold the whole 3000 copies of their first album “Fyeld” (2003) only on home ground which was an exceptional achieve¬ment for a metal group in Bulgaria and were also chosen as one of the bands supporting Slayer and Halford in 2002 and later Anthrax in 2003.
The heavy rotation of their single “I Scream” which stayed in MM tv’s (Bulgaria’s first music television) weekly chart for 8 straight weeks voted by tv viewers (the only metal song to that) lead to nominations for “Best Rock/Alternative video” and “Best Rock/Alternative album” at MM’s Annual Music Awards show.
In 2004 Fyeld was the only metal band to go on the “Music Against Drug Trafficking” tour with some of the hugest pop and hip-hop stars in Bulgaria passing through 8 of the country’s biggest towns! In 2004 they broke up with their former label Joker Media and began working with Stain studio. After a long hiatus leading to the departure of their second guitar player in 2007 they welcomed aboard a new guy called Emo and immediately started recording their new album “Not Blond Enough to Survive the Holocaust”.
With developing heavier and crazier sound Fyeld released a radio single called “Rolling Spawns” in April, 2008 which quickly rose to N. 1 position at “Tangra Mega Rock” radio’s Tuborg Top 40 chart. Additionaly it got serious rotation on “Z-Rock” radiostation and its video is regularly aired on MM Tv. A month after the single’s release the band started a mini-tour in rock clubs across the country bringing their own definition of metal (which the band calls “dirty grooves”) and energy to the excited fans. They also managed to play at the first “Spirit of Burgas” festival, sponsored by MTV and nominated among the 15 best European festivals for 2008. Later in the year due to increasing requests from fans wanting new music from the band Fyeld decided to release a new single with Bulgaria’s biggest metal magazine called “Pro-rock”. The issue contained the song “Beefinger” and its video plus a short film about the quintet. The song was present in “Z-Rock” radio’s daily Top 10 chart voted by fans and its weekly Top 40 chart. After lots of great feedback the band decided to take a break from gigging and concentrate on mixing the album which is about to be released soon.
Fyeld’s musical approach could be explained like this: as much vocal rage as possible brought by lead vocalist/guitarist Bobz with the extraordinary help from aforementioned Emo and 4-stringer Axl also supplying the songs with either funky or gut pounding bass, super cool sounding electronics from Timo - the Finnish groovemaster, ass-kicking drums from Dodo and savage and twisted not-so-regular riffs. Feel the dirty grooves!
