It started off with Robert Kusik (drums) and Maciej Klimek (guitars). Although two wasn’t enough, they started their search for members to their band.
Shortly after, Alan Szczepaniak (guitars), a friend from the Klimek’s neighbourhood, was introduced to the band on one of the practice sessions. His skills and passion to unconventional playing earned him a way in.
In April 2005 a bassist was found - his name’s Łukasz Marszałek, a great fan of Iron Maiden’s The Trooper.
With such a line-up, they started to gig in Leszno, as Hollow.
One mysterious day in mysterious circumstances, they met Beata Łagoda, who took her place behind the keyboard. That’s when Hollow’s direction evolved, becoming more progressive, inspired by such stars as King Crimson, Dream Theather, Pink Floyd and the polish Riverside.
In February 2006, yet another member joined Hollow - Jakub Roszak took his chances on one of their practice sessions as a vocalist. He got in and his addition started off Hollow’s gigs outside of their hometown, Leszno.
July 2006 - Hollow decides to record a demo, which surely helped the band to arise. The demo material was given out for free on band’s gigs, as a method of promotion.
In 2007, Hollow started recording new material for a new demo. Evolution speeds up and that’s how Retrospective is born…
The group creates brand new stuff and takes a new name – ‘Retrospective’.
Recorded at the band’s own expense, a demo record called “Spectrum Of The Green Morning” appears in July. ‘Retrospective’ is slowly getting to the consciousness of a greater number of listeners. They give more and more concerts and finally play with a living legend of art-rock Fish (support in Wroclaw ‘W-Z’ club)
In 2008 The group decides to go with a stoke and makes their first album. In April ‘Retrospective’ suspends their concert activity to devote fully to creating new material. At the same time they find a potential publisher - record company LYNX from Cracow. On 27 October appears their debut long play – “Stolen Thoughts”.
