"Starbourne Traveler" marks a new beginning for Crystal Eyes. The addition of Henrik Birgersson on drums and Jonatan Hallberg has really brought new life and energy to the band and that's been affecting the songwriting a lot. Mikael Dahl has always written all music and presented complete demo songs to the band but this time the other band members wanted to be involved in the writing process as well, so they started with Mikael's song ideas and parts of songs which they arranged together and also tried different ideas while jamming, which has not been the case for at least 15 years. The result is that the songs turned out really solid with a very positive vibe, and everything unnecessary has been left out. There was no plan in changing the musical direction or anything, Crystal Eyes just focused on getting the best out of every song. "Starbourne Traveler" is still 100% Heavy Metal and just as they started the band in 1992, they're still trying to keep the legacy that's been set in the Eighties by Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Accept, Helloween etc. As always, the melodies are in focus whether it's the vocals or the guitars. It's a very diverse album with everything from the fastest Helloween or Running Wild style through mid-tempo songs with echoes of Judas Priest, Manowar, Ozzy, Accept or Saxon, traditional Iron Maiden galloping, a big epic anthem in the title track as well as a ballad which will leave no one untouched. And to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album "World Of Black And Silver", Crystal Eyes have re-recorded "Extreme Paranoia" and "Rage On The Sea", which both fit perfectly to the new songs.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
