The band itself was founded in July 1998, in Rivne (Ukraine) by Bohdan Torchylo and his friend Nazar Mazurok. From the very beginning the band began to play gothic-doom metal. The early history of the band's formation was not rich in important events in the creative and concert way. The progress of the band was slowed down due to different changes of the band's cast and musical difficulties for a long time. That was the reason why the creative and musical activity was not making progress as fast as wanted.


The short chronology of that period:
