Eyesburn is a reggae core band from Belgrade, Serbia formed 1994. The original line up was: Hornsman Coyote (guitar & backup vocals), Laza (bass), Alek (drums) and Nenad (vocals).

During that period, second guitar player Gillespie joined the band and they all started to work on band’s first studio album ”Dog Life” (CD/MC). Unfortunatelly, vocalist Nenad left the band just weeks before studio, and Coyot took his place as a lead singer, continuing to expand his enormous musical talents and skills.
After the album release, Gillespie also left the band, and band continued to play as a trio. At the same time, Coyot starts to take active role as a trombone player as well, and the band started musical exploration of other genres (reggae, dub, drum & bass) making its own specific mixture of styles, and creating their own unique sound which many people liked immediately. All that lead to expanding the line up again and Nino joined the band as a second guitar playe.
