In 1993, Their first show at Telavi Drama Theatre had got great resonance. Since then they appeared at number of rock shows and gala festivals. The band had to work in very bad conditions: civil wars, fast changes of government, with no electricity, no sponsor and so on, which had influenced lyrics of some songs (e.g. Ugunurta Agtqma). The members had to sell things from home for purchasing instruments they needed. As a result, on the spring of 1996, after releasing their second studio album, they disbanded.

The band was influenced mainly by Deep Purple and Black Sabath.
