The Aerium band was born in 2001, but it's suitable to say that it was as an idea only. The three of them (Alex, Andrew and Kirill) played together since 1999 in the project called "Version". In 2002 Igor and Veronika joined the band. Two years later they decided to begin a new project, quite different from the previous one. At this time they finally defined the concept of their music and began creating songs with symphonic scores and opera vocals.
