Dreamscape was founded by lead guitarist Wolfgang Kerinnis and rhythm guitarist Stefan Gassner in 1986. After numerous changes in the line-up, singer Tobi Zoltan, drummer Andreas Angerer and bassist Benno Schmidtler were hired to perform full-time with them. After very thorough preparations, they started performing live in 1992.
In the wake of the CD production, the band decided that they needed a keyboardist as a permanent member, hiring Jan Vacik to fill the spot. Vacik's hiring caused a rift, and as a result three members left, one of them being founding member Gassner.
During the twelve months in between recording and releasing, the band had already created new songs but were delayed once more when lead vocalist Zoltan was asked to leave due to what was called 'lack of motivation'. Vocalist Hubi Meisel replaced Zoltan as vocalist.
Very and End of Silence
After a tour to support the first album, the band went back into the studio, and within a year they came out with their second album Very in 1999. Since then, there have been multiple line-up changes.
5th Season and Everlight
Also in 2008 Dreamscape and Lanfear had planned on performing concerts with each other, but their newly hired lead vocalist Mischa Mang left the band to concentrate more on another band named Ivanhoe, thus postponing the shows indefinitely.
On 2 April 2009, the band announced that Erik Blomkvist, formerly of the band Platitude, would be their new lead vocalist, and was scheduled to appear on their new album However, he soon stepped aside soon after production and recording started, due to unforeseen health problems.
Frank Marino, vocalist, journeyman guitarist and formerly leader of the legendary prog-rock band Mahogany Rush, signed on to complete the album, and was listed as the lead singer. Blomkvist donated vocals to at least one of the tracks on the album, which they released in 2012, titled Everlight.
