Agnosia was formed in 2003 by the composer/guitarist Dionysis and vocalist/guitarist/composer Manos. Originating from Piraeus / Hellas, the band plays progressive metal music, with influences from classic rock, hard rock, jazz and ethnic music genres. The lyrical work based on concept stories. In the same year the demo cd “The Inner Confict” was recorded at Fragile Studios in Greece and finally released during 2004. The Bass Sessions for that recording were arranged and performed by the producer Vangelis Yalamas from the Greek Progsters Fragile Vastness. The worldwide metal press was impressed by that first sample of agnosia’s work. Respected metal magazines and fanzines such as Metal Hammer Greece (8/10), Metalzone Magazine Greece (8.5/10) Metaleagle.com (7/10), The Metal Observer (7.5/10), Shapelesszine (8/10), Metalcoven.de (84%), Barikada.com (8/10), Powermetal.de had written enthusiastic and optimistic words for agnosia. During 2004, the former keyboard player Chris (Wastefall) has been parted ways with the band due to lack of time and obligations. The multi-skilled musician and composer Pantelis filled the place. Additionally Julio assumed the responsibility of the bass-lines as a full time member. During 2006, agnosia was starting to prepare and pre-record its first full-album.Further line-Up changes had been occured. Konstantinos came to the band as the new full-time drummer. However, before his access to the band, the drums in agnosia's first album were recorded by Akis Gavalas (from the Greek progsters Sound of Silence) after the sudden withdrawal of the former drummer Kostas Exarchakos. The line-up was completed by the singer Chris, after Manos decision to concentrate on guitars. The album was recorded during 2007-2009 in Noise Factory and M.I studios in Athens/Piraeus, Greece and was mixed at Finnvox Studio in Helsinki,Finland by the infamous producer Mika Jussila (producer also in Nightwish, Amorphis etc.).
