I started 5grs in 2004, and during these years I have worked with many musicians, but most of the time it didn't work at all, and I always looking for some stable guys to work with as a real band.

Meanwhile we confirmes the first persian metal festival in Armenia, and Sanam who was the studio singer and the second oldest member decided to sing for this festival for the first time upon the stage,and finaly Arastoo joined us as the lead guitarist, and I hope we can work together for a long time and I hope we can get what we deserve."
