After participation in several "basement" projects, I have wanted to create the group, and after long failures with search of structure to me, at last, it was possible to find adherents, and in 2000 there was group "NIGHTWING". Has passed as early as two years, but all material which has accumulated in this time in my head, it was possible to realise. And I began to reflect on the second project so has appeared “one man band”: «NYCTICORAX» and the first дэмо in English. It was very weak record, but it differed that I did in «NIGHTWING».
Then my basic group began to vary, structure changes, star fever of some participants, creative pauses during which time I have fully completed structure "NYCTICORAX" began to appear. (And at once has decided to go on more difficult way of development, i.e. Not clear name, a crude sound, the Russian-speaking lyrics upon which sense it is desirable to ponder.)"
