The beginning of SALTUS reaches as far as to the 1997, when Wojnar (guitar) begets the Dark Forest band. Its irregular line-up, though, causes many rehearsal difficulties. Meantime, the band gets reinforced by Faun (vocal) and Bithorn (guitar.) At the same time the name has been changed to SALTUS. At the beginning of November 1997, the horde registers a demo / rehersal. titled “Inexploratus Saltus”, featuring: Bithorn – guitar, Wojnar – guitar, keyboards, Faun – vocals, Jack – drums. The material meets with various opinions, but the band is not happy with it.
