Since the birth of After Forever in 1995, the band has continually strived to innovate. Remagine, albeit featuring the trusted sound we have come to know as typically After Forever, still manages to sound vital and new. After Forever have been enormously influential with regard to other bands, and were there at the birth of what has now become known as 'gothic metal'. But whatever influences were drawn from After Forever by subsequent bands, they all seem to miss the two characteristics that make After Forever particularly unique: the eternal desire to re-invent themselves and move forward, and of course the inimitable voice of Floor Jansen. Who later joined Nightwish. Jansen seems to switch effortlessly between her usual singing voice and a sensitive soprano, as well as being the driving force behind the choral singing featured on the album, and writing the majority of its lyrics. She also came up with the album’s title. "The title is open to various interpretations, as are my lyrics", Jansen disclosed. "Some people read into the word “remagine” as being a sign that we are re-inventing ourselves. For me, it’s combining dreaming with realism: a combination of 'reality' or 'reflection' and 'imagination'. On this album, dreams and reality merge together." Remagine has emerged as After Forever’s most diverse and dynamic album, due to the band’s ever-present urge to innovate. On this album, the band members are exploring the outer extremities of metal’s borders, stepping outside them convincingly and with no qualms whatsoever at times, all the while retaining the unique identity that constitutes After Forever. Transmission, the label that discovered and signed After Forever, re-releases Remagine as a double-LP, containing 8 bonus-tracks. Included the non-album tracks Taste The Day (Remagine) & Live And Learn, Being Everyone - acoustic version and a touching piano version of Strong. The recordings have been dynamically remastered from the original masters and come packaged in a deluxe gatefold-sleeve, containing exclusive pictures, memorabelia and new liner notes by guitarist/composer Sander Gommans.

"And on the seventh day He listened and He heard that it was good... Not simply good, no, magisterial! So magisterial that Mea Culpa, the first song on the album, can easily hold its own with the best material from other dark metal bands. Sorry, the goalposts have just been moved!"With these words After Forever introduced themselves to the metal front in 2000; a success story that continues until 2009. On this deluxe 2 LP document of Prison of Desire, which includes 6 bonus tracks, you can hear how it all started. Prison of Desire roams through inky black Wagnerian passages, draughty cathedrals, ethereal apparitions. Singer Floor Jansens (Nightwish) classically trained soprano voice is a true revelation and can stand up as easily to a complete choir as to the deeply shrouded grunts from Sander Gommans (HDK) and Mark Jansen (Epica). Prison of Desire operates in the same twilight zone as, for instance, Nightwish, the Gathering, Therion and Within Temptation, but, at the same time, has its own unique sound. Lucidly mixed by Oscar Holleman and with singer Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation) as special guest, this is one of the most impressive Dutch metal debut albums of the past few years.
