In summer 2010 the band released its second LP, “Terminal Code”.

Band Members: Marcin “Hyeev” Galicki - Vocals; Tomasz “Archangel” Gabryel – guitar, production; Robert “Binar” Gregorczuk – synthesizer, keyboards; Jakub “KRN” Lasota – bass guitar, production, synthesizer; Michał “Alvaro” Waliszewski – guitar; Bartłomiej “Bart” Mieżyński - drums.
