After Forever was originally assembled in , under the name Apocalypse. They were originally a death metal cover band with harsh male vocals. Soon, the band began composing their own songs, and then they changed their name to After Forever. In , the band recorded two demos entitled Ephemeral and Wings of Illusion , which drew the attention of the Dutch Transmission Records label, with whom the band signed a contract.
The album obtained very good reviews in Europe. Ayreon is the most successful of the many projects by Dutch guitarist Arjen Anthony Lucassen and that album is only the first of many other collaborations with Floor Jansen. In , the band released the album Decipher , which featured for the first time live classical instruments and a live choir. The complex arrangements of the new compositions pushed After Forever's music even more towards the symphonic metal genre.
In Mark Jansen, one of the main composers and founder of the band, was fired from After Forever and subsequently assembled the band Epica ,  where he continued to pursue the combination of symphonic metal with death metal elements, already present in the first two albums by After Forever.
He was replaced by Bas Maas, who had been a roadie for the band for years. In , the concept album Invisible Circles was released. The album, that deals with childhood traumas and abuse, introduced progressive metal elements to the music of After Forever and the use of a clean male voice. The album reached No. His hood was still fastened securely around his head, his hair providing an additional level of cover over his face.
The downside of that was his vision was severely impaired, leaving him stumbling over the uneven ground. His eyes cast about desperately, looking for a form of shelter away from the incessant crowd, even for a moment.
He was backed up against a wall of tents, the barricade of people in front of him stopping him from moving forwards.
He had to get out of there before he simply fainted from the pressure. Maybe if he got down on all fours and crawled? Yuri felt his cheeks redden, his face feeling like it was about to explode. Just stay like that for a minute, will you? Let me just put something on. Ok, you can turn around now.
Still blushing furiously, Yuri did as he was told. Unfortunately, his already racing heartbeat would not quell, rather it seemed to speed up more at the sight of the man before him. It did not help matters that he was dressed simply in a dark silk robe, his long legs visible, as was the flush on his chest. Do you want some tea? I was just about to make some. Unable to speak, Yuri merely nodded, doing his best to not stare. The other man beamed, rummaging around through a chest before withdrawing a quaint looking teapot and two cups.
He sat silently, watching as the other man puttered about the tent, leaving for a moment to come back with a pot of steaming water. He set it down on a rickety looking table in the center of the tent, deftly pouring it into the teapot causing a few leaves to rise to the surface, as did an enticingly fresh aroma. He did as told, quietly watching as the other man finished up with the tea, pouring it into two cups.
