Miljenko Rajaković aka Dj Mary (co-founder of Implant Code project & electro-industrial DJ in various European clubs) 
and Siniša Očurščak (founder of the TeHÔM project on NER/World Serpent, professor of philosophy in Zagreb) 
were the active minds behind the Principia Audiomatica project.
 "Systematic Sonority" was their debut album for the Italian label Minus Habens Records in 1995, 
based on eight different notions of the environmental systems. 
This work shows an impressive vision on the theme, that lead to a complete development 
of the brilliant "Biodigit" MCD of Implant Code, creating cold and lost electronic ambient structures, 
sometime fused with mind-absorbing rhythms.
Siniša Očurščak died of cancer in 1997 while Miljenko re-activate the project in 2010 
and started working on a new material for an upcoming album release.

Ever Dark was formed in February 1990 by Storm and John "Berzerker".
From day one they sought to lead and create their own style of "Dark Graveyard Metal".
Their three song demo "Christian Execution" never came into existence.
In 1991 Storm left the first line-up behind for a second one, which failed, so in 1992 the band split up.
In February '93 John talked Storm into reforming the band with John's previous band members.
After that Chris joined the band and in May '93 Jay came as session drummer but later he joined fully.
The band wrote 4 new songs, 3 of which were recorded for their "Gravesite Rites" demo that was released in 1994.
Late May '94 they recruited Tom for a twin lead guitar team and they played a few huge gigs to promote the band.
The demo-sales were going pretty good and soon Full Moon Productions approached them for a 7" EP

which later ended up as a planned split CD with Naglfar.
The split CD never happened so Full Moon had them record a mini CD entitled "Armageddon's Birth", 

unleashing 4 new tracks and a demo song.
In the summer of 1996 Ever Dark signed to II Moons.
The recording for their first full length album, entitled "Not Of God" started in October '96 and released in 1997.
After the release of the album the band ceased to exist although there are rumors 

that they assembled in 2006 and split up again in 2010.
