Vanishing Point was formed in the early 1990′s. The band concentrated their efforts on song writing/recording and their first album, and In Thought was recorded in 1996, and released in Europe by German label Angular Records in 1997.
Vanishing Point headed to Germany for the 2000 Wacken Open Air festival. Later that year the band's second album Tangled in Dream was released in Australia by Metal Warriors and internationally by Germany's LMP label. The following eighteen months was a busy period for the band. In late 2001, Vanishing Point returned to Europe for a tour with Gamma Ray and Sonata Arctica.
In 2005 the band returned to a live performances at Metal For The Brain, and then a show with Nightwish on the Melbourne leg of their Australian tour. Embrace The Silence was released mid-year internationally by their new label, Germany's Dockyard 1 and in Australia by the Wollongong-based Riot! label.
During 2006, Vanishing Point supported Black Label Society and Gamma Ray on the Melbourne leg of their Australian tours, and in May 2007, Vanishing Point supported DragonForce in Australia and New Zealand. The band's fourth album The Fourth Season was released on the 24th August 2007, through Dockyard 1. In February 2008 Vanishing Point supported Iron Maiden, performing a single show in Perth and two shows in Melbourne. Vanishing Point appeared alongside fellow Australian power metal band Black Majesty on tour with Helloween in February 2008.
In July 2008 Vanishing Point supported Joe Satriani for his two Melbourne shows.
In late September 2008 Vanishing Point once again took off for Europe this time supporting good friends Sonata Arctica with Norway's Pagan's Mind, the tour was a success and the band played in many new countries where the band had never been to before. Vanishing Point returned home to Australia for a short break and then to fully concentrate on writing the follow up album to The Fourth Season.
