Their European tour started in Holland, with crowd of more than 4,000 attending. They were given the opportunity to perform again the next day.

At the end of the tour in 2004 Blissed began to record new material for an unnamed label. 2 tracks were produced during this time period. Superhero - written by Jeff Miller & David Pearson and Monster - written by David Pearson & Trevor Barr. Full pre-production of Superhero was achieved, but full pre-production of Monster was never achieved. Subsequently, Trevor Barr (guitars) parted ways with Blissed and has not been hear of musically again since. It was at this time that Stryper reunited and Blissed changed its line-up to include David Pearson (vocals/guitar), Jeff Miller (guitar/vocals), Nathan Kojak (drums/vocals), and Russ Wood (bass/vocals). - Wikipedia
