That invigorated it was even possible to tour Germany as the support of the genre greats of Skyclad.

Contrary to all expectations CUSTARD were received warmly by the audience of the folk metal band, so the guys were able to establish themselves in filled up clubs every night. Inspired by the unexpected success, CUSTARD started to write songs for their first adequate album. With KINGDOMS OF YOUR LIFE (Point Music) a product was released which, according to the specialist publications, did not have to hide behind the international competition.

Also FOR MY KING (BO Records/Last Episode) could win the international press as well as fans in many countries straight away. In 2005 the album WHEELS OF TIME (Mausoleum Records/Soulfood) was created.

With best reviews it was possible to play a lot of festivals and even a headliner-tour with the swedish mates of Sabaton was very successful. 2007 was a year of massive changes. With a fresh line up and a new label-deal the album FORCES REMAIN (Dr.

Music/Rough Trade) entered the stores in autumn 2008 and once more it is named as a blast for press and fans. ... to be continued ! .
