The story of Ageness starts in 1983 with the band Scarab, where Tommy Eriksson and Kari Saaristo played together. Scarab made a self-financed debut album in the same year and rapidly split up. Sometimes, they met each other and made some jam sessions and sometimes talked of a reunion. In 1991, they decided to go further than just talk. So Eriksson and Saaristo recruited two friends, Jari Ukkonen and Vesa Auvinen, to form a totally new band called Ageness. The band released their first single in 1992 and soon after that, keyboardist Jari Laasanen joined.
