Mystery Blue (1978-1989, 1995-present) is a Heavy Metal band from Strasbourg, Grand Est, France.
ounded by guitarist "Frenzy" (Real Name: Francis Philippon) in 1982, along with Patrick Faller (bass), Jean-Marc Gogel (drums) and Yvan Bailbled (guitars/vocals), Mystery Blue would publish their demo in 1983.
By the time the self titled 1984 debut happened, the membership changed to feature F. Philippon (guitars), P. Faller (Real Name: Patrick Faller; bass), J.M. Gogel (Real Name: Jean-Marc Gogel; drums), Y. Bailbled (Real Name: Yvan Bailbled; guitars) and M. Torres (Real Name: Michel Torres; vocals). Circle of Shame (1986) would follow before a long string of demos and a membership shift before the act split in 1989 due to internal differences.
It would be nearly 10 years later when the band reformed under the membership of Nathalie Geyer (vocals/keyboards), Vince Koehler (drums) and Dany Ohlmann (bass) to release Spirit of Your Song (1998). More demos would follow before the release of Metal Slaves (2003) in an attempt at a comeback with a more mature attitude and sound.
Rikki Mannhard would assume bass for Claws of Steel (2006) and Hell & Fury (2009). For Conquer the World (2012) Matt Gabnai would be on bass. Over their career, Mystery Blue would tour with Saxon, Motorhead and Def Leppard.
