Formed by Jari Mäenpää as a side project when he was in Ensiferum. When the sessions booked for the recording of the first album clashed with an Ensiferum tour, Jari left Ensiferum. The first album was recorded entirely by Jari, apart from the drums which were played by Kai Hahto.

Former Ensiferum drummer Oliver Fokin briefly preceded Teemu Mäntysaari as the second guitarist but left before the recording sessions for second album began.

Jari used to describe the band’s genre as “Extreme Majestic Technical Epic Melodic Metal”. Later on, after “Time I” was released, he referred to it as “Universal Metal” due to lots of various influences included.
