INK were formed in August of 1999 in Alexandroupolis – Greece when Savas Karabalasis (guitars, samples, producer) and Kostas Apostolopoulos (lead guitar) were recording their first demo. They brought in Chris Tsantalis, a young vocalist from the area. This demo received very good reviews from Greek magazines. Then, they started immediately to record their first complete EP which was named New Day. This had a lethal mix of heavy guitars, psychedelic melodies and soulful vocals. This EP was well received as well. After this, they recorded their full length, Diary in 2009.
