Back in may 1989, Eternal Solstice was founded by Ramon Soeterbroek, Philip Nugteren, Edwin Roor and Kees-Jan Schouten. After Edwin Roor left the band, two ex-Sempiternal Deathreign members we "recruited" and the following line-up was a fact:
* Kees-Jan Schouten - Vocals
* Philip Nugteren - Guitars
* Victor van Drie - Guitars
* Ramon Soeterbroek - Bass
* Mischa Hak - Drums After a period of practising Mischa Hak came up with the idea to realize a self-financed split album of the two bands he was playing with (besides Eternal Solstice he also played with a band called Mourning).
