2) Symbolic ( also check: http://www.last.fm/music/Symbolic+Band ) is formed in Tuzla ( BiH) in summer of 1999 when old line up split up.
Remaining members Mirza (Smajlovic) on guitar and Piper (Eldar Ibrahimovic) on drums asked Dejo (Slavuljica) to join on vocals. Band began with composing when they were joined by another Mirza (Osmanovic) on bass guitar just few weeks after. Band played a mixture of older classic rock music and a neo-classical progressive music. In just few months time band had five songs and a demo recording. All songs were written by all band members together. Demo was recorded in a home studio, where most of the rehearsing also took place. In September of 2000 the band had its’ first live appearance which took place in Palma, Tuzla. Each year the band turned up with few new songs and did a gig. In July of 2001 band was joined by Jelenko (Bosnjakovic) on the bass guitar as Mirza showed more interest for other kinds of music. Soon after, band played on a “Tuzla Wave festival”.

In August of 2002 the band began recording in an improvised home studio and result was a 10 song CD. The CD was finished in December of 2002. Mastering was carried out with help of Jusuf Sehovic, apart from that the CD was composed, arranged, recorded and designed by Symbolic members on their own.

In 2003 the band line up changed once again. Dejo was unable to continue working with the band and a quick but decent solution was Zlatko Josic. The band was able to do two gigs after few weeks of rehearsing with Hard Time from Croatia and Bavaria Fest 2003. Soon after for some personal reasons, Jelenko also left the band. This was not an easy replacement, since there are few good bass players in this area who love progressive music. Three months later, (cca. Nov. 2003) the band was joined by Ado Osmanovic, which was followed by number of gigs. The band did gigs in B&H including Sarajevo, Domaljevac, Gracanica, Odzak, and some places in Croatia as well
(Osijek and Kumrovec Open Air Fest). This line up completed a demo material in November of 2004 simply called “DEMO 2004”, which consists of four songs and was positively recognized in the media.

At the end of 2004 Zlaja also left the band as the demand for rehearsing and practicing increased. The band was joined by Gogo as a lead singer and Amna as a background singer in late 2004. From then onwards the band worked on new songs. When total of 10 new songs was reached the band decided to start with the recording of their second full length studio material. The band decided to purchase studio equipment from the money earned by playing gigs and to record studio material on their own. Recording began during summer 2005 and ended at the beginning of 2006 following by extensive mixing period. The band also played on numerous festivals throughout 2005, such as Soda Open Air, Bosnian Metal Fest, Radio Mir Demo Fest, and so on. During the recording session, the band split apart with background singer Amna.

In early 2008 Symbolic was invited to be featured on Melodic Metal Worldwide compilation CD released which was released in June 2008 by Shaded Moon Entertainment label.

In the year 2007 the band scheduled a release of their Dreamend through a label from Bosnia. After more than half a year from scheduled release date it turned out that label was unable to carry out the agreed deal. The band went back to studio to improve the quality of recording and produce a professional material in order to find appropriate record deal. After days of remixing, mastering and looking for a label, the album was finally released trough Shaded Moon Entertainment on 15 March 2009. The band was recently joined by Emir Hujdur on bass guitar.
