Exposed to the "Swedish wave" when they were young, they have been influenced by bands like At the Gates, In Flames and Dark Tranquillity.

After internal arguing, and difficulties to be produced, the band finally managed to find its own style, as melodic death metal.

Songs included in video games

They composed several of the titles present on the soundtrack of the game *S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl * (Dirge For The Planet, Fighting Unknown, Against The Ionized Odds), *S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky *, and *S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat * (Live to Forget).
