Odyssice (a fantasy name associated with Greek mythelogy) was founded in 1986 by
Bastiaan Peeters (guitar), André Hubbeling (keyboards) and Alan Natele (drums).
The first member changes has occured in 1989. Bart Kühne replaced Alan and Erik Aafjes was added on bass.

In September 2003 Odyssice finally found themselves a new bass-player in the person of Gijs Koopmans, formally bass-player of Cliffhanger. Gijs left after 6 months and was replaced by Peter Kosterman. With this new fresh member the band started working in new material.
The year 2007 and 2008 were mainly used for creating more new songs and for Bastiaan to realise his long-time dream; a private digital home-recording studio.
The recording of the new album began in Februari 2009. Seven new songs, that were selected from the demo’s, were recorded in the new ‘Legend Studios’. The new album Silence is released on May 23rd 2010.
