The band then polished their styles further, and made some changes in the line-up. After having been with the band since it's formation, two of the members left the ranks, to be replaced by Stephan Laschetzki (bass) and Stephan Machon (keyboards). Initial discussions between the band and 'Limb Music Products' and 'Publishing (LMP)' were held in December 1997; 'LMP' subsequently offering the band a contract.
Their second album, Beyond The Stars, was released 17th of April 2000. It was an album that contained everything from classical and orchestral arrangements to hard riding guitar riffs and melodic refrains. During that time there were also extensive promotional activities all over the world but especially in Paris for the French release under the license label 'NTS'.
In 2001 new band members would arrive in the form of Stefan Ikert (bass), Heiner Risthaus (keyboards) and Florian Tabbert (drums). Machon, Laschetzki and Thrunke left the band due to personal reasons. Extensive promotional activities in Sao Paulo, Brasil would commence with the license label 'Rock Brigade'; the band would leave the contract with 'LMP' in 2002.
Björn Bombach would assume bass for IT (2006) and Heiner Risthaus would be out for IV (2011).
Dirk Meyer took vocals and Frank Fasold assumed keyboards for Stronger (2019).
