1991 - Early part of the year (february?) brought a tragedy for Topaz,
when their finnish member Coax (Mikko Paronen, music) was killed in a train
accident. A memorial demo was reportedly planned by the finnish scene, but
we have no information on if it was ever released.
1992 - In may, the two danes Caprix (code) and Kirk (gfx, also in Plasma
Design) left the group for Oxyron.
1993 - Dutch Calypso (gfx) joined from F4CG in january, while maintaining
his double membership in Amnesia. German coder and musician Benno joined
from Trance around june. Amarok ended his double membership in Oxyron in
august, to be in Topaz only.
