They wanted to create something that had the same intensity as In Flames, but with a different approach- they wanted to make it more brutal and faster. At first the name "Dimension Zero" wasn´t at the two young men´s tongue, as they had chosen another name for their project-Agent Orange. This name was active for a while, but unfortunately, they found out that another band carried the same name, and to their disappointment it was impossible to make them change their name, so Jesper and Glenn made a new name- and Dimension Zero, was formed. The line-up in 1996 consisted of: Hans Nilsson (Luciferion, Crystal Age, Diabolique) - drums, Jocke Gothberg (ex. Marduk) - vocals, Fredrik Johansson - Lead Guitar, Glenn Ljungstrom (ex. In Flames) -Guitar and Jesper Stromblad (In Flames) - Guitar and Bass. This line-up was the one featured on the mini CD that was released in 1997 on War Music: "Penetrations of the lost world". The mini CD "Penetrations of the lost world" was released and it did very well across the world, especially in Japan. One year after the release of "Penetrations.", the band got together to make a tribute song on a compilation album to Sepultura - Troops of Doom, which featured Daniel from In Flames on Vocals (he was then in Sacriliege), and Jeppe, Glenn and Hasse-(Fredrik wasn´t a part of this recording). They also made a Mercyful Fate cover: My Demon, which was featured on a tribute- to Mercyful Fate Another year passed by and nothing happened in the life of Dimension Zero But they did, however manage to record another song "They are waiting to take us" for the 1998 WAR DANCE Compilation, which once again featured Jocke on Vocals. After this the band decided to break up, for good. A lot of stuff had happened that made them take to this drastic solution, including Touring, Children, Fylla, Sex and tons of unmentional stuff. Sad but true- Dimension Zero was no more. But then in the beginning of the new Millennium- year 2000- the band decides to put their differences aside and once again start working together as a team. The line up stayed the same except for some minor changes, Hans Nilsson - drums, Jocke Göthberg - vocals, Glenn Ljungström - Guitar and Jesper Strömblad - Guitar and Bass. It was first in early 2001 that the band started rehersing and writing songs for the soon to be released album. In June 2001 the band signed a record deal with Regain Records. Finally the band entered studio Phlat Planet and with Anders Friden (In Flames) behind the mixing table the band started recording their album. The recording lasted for 16 days and features nine songs of the rawest metal the world has ever heard.
