After developing and refining their sound through their succession of pre-productions, they released their first demo inception in 2003. They received a good reaction with their demo from many CD shops and fanzines in Japan and they started to have energetic live tours since June in 2004.
They already have a big fan base here in Tokyo through uncountable tours.
In November 2007, they made a contract with Prosthetic Records from the US.
And they made worldwide release for their first album on February 19th, 2008.
In May 2008, they welcomed the new official drummer after three years.
On July 7th, 2009, they will release their second album "Worship" in the US proir to the worldwide release. They welcomed Shane Gibson (supporting guitarist for Korn) as a guest in "Into The Void" and the mastering was done by Ted Jensen from The Sterling Sound, NY.
