The band was formed in 2003 by former members of the black metal band Shadowland. After some line-up shuffle, they released their first demo CD a.d. 542. Later the same year the band made their first live appearances mainly in Sofia on festivals like Metal Repulsive Blasphemy. In 2005 they released their next work, which was the EP they plainly named Demenzia. More gigs followed. In 2006 the band was joined by Georgy Gigov (bass) and Marin Ivanov (keyboards), which meant that the band live show would now also include keyboards. The band started touring some additional cities like Varna and Plovdiv with their new material, which was soon to become their debut album Different Seasons. Shortly after the release of the album in November 2006, the band appeared on the Haunted Shores Festival in Bourgas, organised by their new label IMSB&Nox Studio. In 2007 the band was more active with appearances abroad than at home visiting The Metal Healing Festival in Greece and The Red Alert Open Air in the Ukraine. In 2009 the band released their first video called Faces and toured in both Bulgaria and Serbia. The track for the video is new and does not appear on any releases by the band yet, but is expected to become part of a future album or EP by the band. It marks a change in the band's musical direction leaning towards the new wave of melodic death metal and metalcore. In September 2009 the band released their first official video dubbed "Faces" to YouTube. At the end of the year they make a tour in Serbia. Now they are working on new material which will lead to their second album.
