In the winter of 2000/01 the band won a festival that gave them the possibility to record a e.p. that procured a contract with the Italian independent label Vacation House Records.
In 2002, they came out with their first l.p. “The Sky“: the album collects all the songs written in the first years of activity of the band, where the guys tried to create their own style, combining all the different music styles that are spinning around the hardcore, but without taking a precise direction.

These experimentations seem to don’t convince the band, that after radical and numerous components changing, remains in a power-trio line-up.
In 2008, they came back to record a new l.p., “The Earth“, in which they tried to fix their style restricting the range of sonority between the east-coast hardcore and the crossover.

In 2010, they changed the label leaving the Vacation House Records for the Black Shirts Records, and in 2011, they released their third l.p., “Rising from a Burning Desease“: this new album signed the change in the style that brought the Italian band to modify the drafting of the songs for keeping them concrete and effective, clutching more closely their sound and leaving away the contamination with external genres outside hardcore.

The beginning of 2012 was distinguished with a line-up extension with the joining of a second guitarist and with the release of “Face the Truth“, their fourth studio l.p. This album confirmed the line settled with the previous record and becoming, for chronological and stylistic matters, the natural continuation of “Rising from a Burning Desease“.
In mid-2013, they released the fifth l.p. “One Life to Fight“, that contained an increasing of sonority of the guitars. The band moved away from the pure old-school style where the two guitars follow a common rhythm line, “detaching” one of it for giving them a lead line with harmonization on the new-school/post-hardcore way. In this work, the band enlarged the line-up with the joining of Rocca at bass that was left by Pav, who became the front-man.
During the promotion of the album, the line-up of the band affected a change with the moving of Divi to the bass and the entry of Migue at the lead guitar. Ending the One Life to Fight tour, the band concentrated on the writing and arrangement of a new l.p. “Our Reality“, that will be released in 2016, in which they followed amplifying the post-hardcore harmonization idea, joining it to a beatdown hardcore style, just strongly present in the last albums.
