The history of Infinite Tales began in 2001 when Glorf's friends presented him Nightwish DVD "From Wishes to Eternity". Glorf said "It was something amazing for me. I remember that I fell in love with heavy music on that day. Thanks to Tuomas Holopainen." Soon Igor learning to play guitar and when he was 15 he bought his first electric guitar. In 2005 Glorf shared his band creation  idea with bassist Dmitry (Koma) and guitarist Nazar (Nazar Ustyannik), which at that time were playing in different bands. This idea was very interesting for them but the creation of the band was delayed because of the involvement of future band members in other projects. By the way, Glorf, Koma and Nazar are classmates. In 2007 the guys realized that they can not wait anymore and the first band's lineup was assembled after 2 weeks. Glorf said "The lineup was a nightmare, everything was not as desired". Several of the following band lineups were like first one.

Glorf met drummer Perevod (Alexei Perevodchik) when he was a freshman. Glorf was impressed with his drumming skills. "It was so great that he agreed to join Infinite Tales as he had much more musical professionalism than we had".

In 2007 she met guys from Infinite Tales and she life has filled with the music again.
