The band was formed in 1996 by Voluta brothers (Valentin the guitarist and Eugene the drummer) in Chisinau, the capital of the Republic of Moldova. The band was inspired by the band Nirvana and the guys were spending whole days playing Nirvana songs. The band rehearsed a lot and took part at most of the local music fest and played many shows in the capital of the country, Chisinau. The first period of the band finished after graduating from the lycee by three members of the band. A little pause was crucial in defying the future music direction of the band influenced by such bands as Dream Theater, Pain of Salvation, Andromeda, Rush and many other progressive monsters. So, the band reopened its activity by the year 2001 in a renewed lineup. The music was more like progressive rock/metal more than a brutal one. In this period the band played many local shows. The band recorded some songs in this period and stopped again from live and rehearsal activity near the year 2006 because of lack of time and perspectives. In 2009 the virtual activity of the band was reopened and the band which consisted of only two members, the Voluta brothers. Actually, the band was Valentin’s hobby during the studio years. Eugen joined the band Infected Rain in 2012 and concentrated mostly on playing and working live with the other moldavian metal band. So the band is actually mostly a studio project which involves new musicians and featured singers opened for fun!
