Founded in 2004 by Jarkko Lunnas and Kalle Niininen, the first Demo EP “Darker World” was released in 2007 for which the band played a dozen gigs around the Helsinki area, including a Tuska 2007 Warm-up show.
In 2011 after a more or less hiatus, the material for the first full length “The Wakening” was ready and the recordings got started. The band’s line up was completed by Asim Searah for clean vocals and Tommy Tuovinen (ex-MyGrain) for harsh vocals. With the renewed line up introducing Asim and Tommy on vocals, Jukka Vehkamaa on bass, Antti Lauri on lead guitar the band recorded “The Wakening“ which was mixed by Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity, Nightingale, Bloodbath etc) at Unisound studio in Germany.
“The Wakening“ was released world-wide via Coroner Records (Disarmonia Mundi, Destrage etc) (“The Wakening” debuted at #18 in Finnish physical album sales chart) in March 2013. After “The Wakening“ release and its release gigs the band started working on new material and entered D-Studio to record the drums for the second full length album “Reality Illusion“.
Alongside the drum recordings the band recorded a live “In Session at D-Studio”, featuring four songs from “The Wakening“ album. In between the recordings and the mixing the band visited also Tallinn’s RockClub Tapper to play it’s first outside Finland gig, supporting Suicidal Angels (Gr).
After a tedious recording process where the band recorded everything themselves except the drums, the new album “Reality Illusion“‘s mix was completed in December 2016 by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studios. The band’s hands down finest and most ambitious work to date “Reality Illusion“ is out now in 2017 via Inverse Records!
