the haze I history 01 I 02
August 1994 Colour Haze was formed with Stefan Koglek (git., voc.), Tim Höfer (dr.) and Christian Wiesner (b.) and did a kind of artificial Doom-Psycore. Tim and Stefan played together since 1989 in the Krautwave and later on Jazzcore-formation Surface Tension. With Christian, Stefan played together at Organized Noise, the local Goth-(Punk)Rock heroes then.

In January 95 the first CD „Choppingmachine“ (1000copies made) was recorded and released in August on the small Munich Label David Records – with overwhelming critics-response, but unfortunately without an effective distribution. In the following year CH did some gigs all over Germany and recorded a few new tracks for some. VA-compilations.....
1997 was a dead year for CH –In search for better artistic development, the original line-up split up...Tim went to the Noise-Core heroes Tailgate, Stefan and Christian, together with new singer Felix Neuenhoff, checked some drummers...and made a lot of new songs, recorded some...and did a few gigs
In August 1998 Christian left the band and Manfred Merwald (dr.) (former drummer of myriads of Hardcore and Crossover and Tom Waits-Cover-Bands in Rosenheim) and Philipp Rasthofer (b.) (formerly disappointed of being in bands, didn’t play for years, until he met Stefan in 1996 – they did a lot of jam-sessions then) came in. Together with singer Felix they recorded, again with engineer Chris Void, the CD „Seven“ (50 CDR-copies made) in December...Troubles weren’t over yet and Felix, too occupied with work and soccer-fanatism, left the band suddenly in
May 1999, two weeks before a couple of gigs...Stefan, out of singing since two years, had to do the double- part again...and it worked – somewhat wiser and more relaxed Philipp, Mani and Stefan did a great number of new songs. With the LP-Demo „Periscope“, recorded, with Tim Höfer engineering, in the CH-rehearsal-place in October 1999 (100 CDR-copies made) new interest was stirred up. Mani and Philipp moved to Munich....
