Echo Image was a Norwegian synthpop band. The band unofficially started in 1997 when Pål Magnus Rybom started experimenting with electronic music. Later that year Fredrik Hansen joined and Echo Image was officially formed with Trine Bilet joining towards the end of the year providing backing vocals and keyboards. Bilet is featured on the front cover of the Endless Day EP.

In 1998, Echo Image recorded the Walkout EP, which was sold locally through a punk/prog label called Kvarts Musikk. Their musical style didn't really suit Kvarts, so in 2000 they signed to US synthpop label A Different Drum. Around this time Lars Kristian Holt joined as live guitarist.

The 2000 single Need To Be Proud was mixed by Apoptygma Berzerk frontman Stephan Groth, who introduced them to the Norwegian label Hard:Drive. After releasing Compuphonic simultaneously on ADD and the now defunct Bloodline in Europe, they signed with Hard:Drive and released the Endless Day EP. Echo Image accompanied Apoptygma Berzerk on the Harmonizer tour in 2002.

The 2001 Single Skulk was also featured in the dancing games Dance Dance Revolution ULTRAMIX 2[1] and Dance Dance Revolution ULTRAMIX 4[2] (Konami Remix), both for the XBOX video-game system.

The members of the band are currently Pål Magnus Rybom, Trine Bilet, and Lars Kristian Holt; Fredrik Hansen left the band in 2004, but is in contact with the band in regards to joining again.



The band was rumored to be working on a second album, although the proposed 2006 time frame has long since passed. « hide
