Hamburg-based Project Pitchfork started in 1989, primarly inspired by electronic New Wave artists such as Ultravox, The Human League, Invisible Limits, SPK and others. Another influence was the New Age movement that included acts like Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis. In the first half of the 1990s, Pitchfork had become one of the most popular music groups of the German Dark Wave culture. Between the mid- and late-1990s, the band changed their musical direction to a more trend-oriented style, which was strongly influenced by Rock, Electropop, Techno/Trance, Trip Hop, Breakbeat and Big Beat music. The result of this musical blend has been released on the albums "¡Chakra:Red!" (1997), "Eon:Eon" (1998) and the most successful work "Daimonion" (2001).
