The Eye Of Time is the Solo-Project of French musician Marc Euvrie. Euvrie’s musical development is deeply connected with the French DIY punk and hardcore scene, though he has been classically trained as well. His output was never supposed to be understood as resignation. There is no other option then showing society’s open wounds and bringing up the most painful subjects, as it seems there is a strong need to face the darkest things before your very ears to finally wake up. And Marc notes: “I try to drag the listeners into hell as deep as possible so that they don’t have any choice but to be beaten to the ground and to jump back into light.”
