In 1994, Frank started Born for Bliss with Willem van Antwerpen (also Wim Anvers) and Remco Herbers (ex-The Dreamside).

A self-titled demo CD reached the Ruhr region in the same year, thanks to old XYMOX contacts.

Contrary to the music XYMOX was making at this time, the sound of Born for Bliss dispayed a lot of 80s-Wave flair without relying on modern sample sounds and beats.

The way of playing and the sound of Remco's Chapman Stick brought a very special dimension to Born for Bliss's sound.

Their first EP, "Arabia" (Nuclear Blast), instantly brought Born for Bliss their biggest success; the title track was a seductive, dynamic song, combining the melancholy of 80s and dynamics of the 90s.

The single was a real club hit, and found its way into the German Alternative Charts.

In 1997, the debut album "Flowing With The Flue" (Nuclear Blast, 1997), in its intro not unjustly characterised as "a Wave album for the 90s".

The second album "Between Living and Dreaming" was scheduled to appear in 1999 but differences with management and the record company resulted in Born for Bliss dissolving.

The already-mixed album was never released. After the split of Born for Bliss Weyzig Frank and Remco Helbers continued working as Stargaze Project and Frank began working with White Rose Transmission.c628303026787ad6f56d1871ef1890b1

Born for Bliss's second album "Between Living and Dreaming" was released in 2010 via Echo zone, including as bonus material the track,

"Dragon", which Frank wrote in 1985 during his time in XYMOX.

Encouraged by the good reviews of the album,

Born for Bliss continued working on new songs.
