-The whole thing started as a recordingproject summer  97.We recorded two demos - 'Vol. 1' and 'Vol. 2: Tour & Turtle'. I (Nicklas Andersson) - guitar, bass and vocals , Jörgen Andersson - vocals, Daniel Gustafsson - guitar, keyboards and bass, Emir Horozic - drums. In the end of 98(after that friends have said to us) we send out some CD-r demos, ten or something. We get a contract immediately. Even Manīs Ruin was interested. Eric on Music Cartel was very interested and he really wanted to sign us. After some weeks with The Music Cartel quit the drummer Emir Horozic and started to study on highschool. And in the spring 99 I started to drum and Kalle Berlin took over the bass. After that everything have been going fast. Our debutalbum was released in august last year and the new record Noara dance came out some months ago.
