Epiclore, which plays symphonic epic atmospheric metal, was founded in April 2000 by Olli & Panu Hurskainen in Joensuu, Finland. Back then, Olli played all the instruments except drums, of which Panu took care on the first demo. The band worked under the project name Endeavour at that time. The first demo "Eulogy" was produced in our school's music class and released in May 2000. Two songs of the demo were also released on a collection of songs produced in our school.
