Heavy rock band originating from Oulu, Finland, formed in 1998 by Taneli Jarva, the former vocalist/bassist of Sentenced. The original lineup included Taneli Jarva (vocals), Sir Luttinen (drums), Maike Valanne (guitar), Alexi Ranta (guitar) and Florida (bass). With this lineup the band released three full lengths ("Ichor" (2000), "Utopia A.D." (2001). and "Man's Ruin Revisited" (2004)) and the "Doomsday Sun" EP (2001).

At this point Jarva had relocated to Helsinki and as the long distance operation of the band became impossible, the lineup was completely renewed around 2004-2005. Only Maike Valanne from the original members continued with Jarva. The three new members were Heavy Hiltunen (guitar), Rale Tiiainen (drums) and Ilkka Tanska (bass). With this lineup the band released two albums: "A Place Called Bad" (2005) and "Ghost Brothel" (2009).

On October 5th 2014 Jarva announced that the band has stopped being operative.
