One of their most notable shows was support act for Royal Hunt in 2008. Eclipse Hunter released a digital demo EP entitled Lost Symphony in February 2007 and started recording a full-length album the same year, in December. The album production was complete by May 2009 and a few months later, the band was signed by an independent label - NewRock Music.
