Empatic / Bio

The band was formed in December 2005 in Ostrołęka. Its founders are two musicians from Ostrołęka: a vocalist- Maciek Rochaczewski and a bass player- Włodzimierz Małaszek, alias Włodas. They are the ones who assembled the new group. It turned out that founding of the band resulted from the break-up of two other music bands from Ostrołęka.
