Candela are founded by Michael Siegmund (bass) and Uwe Giesa (rhythm guitar); the first songs are written.
Stefan Lötsch (drums) joins the band.
Juliane Ehl (lead & rhythm guitar) joins the band; excessive search for a singer seems to lead nowhere.
Scotty is supposed to be the perfect choice for the singer, but he leaves the band two days prior to their first gig in November - no one really gets why.
The band finds Pedro Fuentes, an enthusiastic south-american singer who has never done metal before; the voice is a little unusual, but the reactions are positive; the band plays their first gigs and records a demo.
Pedro has to leave the band to return to Chile.
On the search for a new singer the band finds a keyboard player - Thomas Schwarz - instead; some songs are changed to fit the new line-up, new songs are written.
Christian Kulike (vocals) is done doing karaoke and joins the band.
