Inopia started with a present. A guitar which Salex Iatma got from his colleagues on his 17-th anniversary. Although he did not benefit of any previous musical education, after only three months of playing he joined a hard core metal project initiated by Michael Weigand. Shortly after he decided to form his own band, feeling the urge of developing his creativity. Luck was on his side, and very soon he met Claudia Gorgan, a graduate of Conservatory who became keyboard player and vocal.
