In 1999, one of the original Osvajači members, guitarist Dragan Urošević, with a new band (which included former Osvajači member Saša Popović) released the album Vrelina under the name Osvajači. This album is considered the continuation of the original Osvajači work, which is not the case with the albums released by Pantović and Jakovljević during the 1999-2002 period. In 2005, Pantović, Jakovljević and Urošević reunited, performing original Osvajači songs, but in 2009 Urošević left the band. Pantović and Jakoveljević continued to perform both original Osvajači and Osvajači All Stars songs and Urošević and Pantović formed the hard rock band Čipi & Industrija (Čipi & Industry).
Pantović is currently vocalist for both bands. The band was formed in 1990 by Zvonko Pantović (vocals), Dragan Urošević (guitar), Saša Popović (bass guitar) and Miša Raca (drums). The keyboardist Laza Ristovski and the bass guitarist Dejan Dačović were also involved in the band's activity. Ristovski played keyboards on the recording and produced Osvajači debut album, and performed with the band on various occasions. The band's debut album Krv i led (Blood and Ice), released through PGP-RTB in 1990, was mostly glam metal-oriented, while their second album Sam (Alone), released in 1995 through PGP-RTS, on which they were joined by the keyboardist Nebojša Jakovljević, although still fitting into glam metal, marked the band's slight shift towards a heavier sound. After releasing a compilation album The Best Of in 1997, Osvajači disbanded. After recording the song "Vino crveno" with band Prvi Čin, Zvonko Pantović formed the rock/pop/folk band All Stars Osvajači.
Nebojša Jakovljević soon joined Pantović's new band. All Stars Osvajači continued to be typically referred to as just "Osvajači", which caused confusion among fans. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
