Space Eater was formed as a project of former members of the band called After Life, Boško Radišić (vocals) and Stanislav Šaršanski (lead guitar) in October 2004, when Nemanja Pavlović (guitar) and Karlo Testen (bass) were introduced to the band, as well as an old After Life compatriot Nikola Roglić (drums). With one completely finished song back from the After Life period (‘Afterlife’), Space Eater quickly took of and made another original song (‘Merciful Angel’). The band then applied for the national Radio 202 Demo Masters Tournament and reached semifinals, where its performance was interrupted by the police due to violent moshing (the guy broke his leg) and band never actually finished it. Although the band hadn’t gone to finals, it was called to perform as guest on the finals night that was broadcasted live nationwide and recorded in the Radio Belgrade’s Studio 6. That night Space Eater for the first time presented 2 new tracks, an intro titled ‘Beyond Time’ (which would later be renamed ‘MCMXCIX’ on the album) and a new song ‘Bombs Away’. In 2005 Space Eater entered qualifications for “Zaječarska Gitarijada”, the oldest and the biggest competition for unsigned rock bands, and took third place amongst numerous participating bands nationwide. Space Eater was the only metal band to enter the finals. The live recording of ‘Bombs Away’ featured on “Bombs Away!” demo is from the finals of that event broadcasted on national TV. In March 2006 the band release a new 3-track demo “Bombs Away!” that features following songs: ‘Bombs Away’, ‘Merciful Angel’ and ‘Space Eater’. Demo was again recorded at Studio 6, on professional equipment and at the time was representative for what Space Eater stands for: speed, strength and strong sense of melody. This demo has been awarded the ‘demo of the month’ title in April issue of Serbian Metal Hammer magazine. In the beginning of 2007. the band has signed a deal with the Swedish label I Hate Records, who release the “Merciful Angel” album in August 2007. Next year band was sporadically playing because 4 members were serving mandatory army duty. In January 2009. Space Eater recorded 8 demo songs for the new album and started looking for the label to release it. On june the 3rd the tragedy happened, Bosko and his sister died, and the band was stopped. In January we signed with Stormspell records and started to practice for the new album that we recorded from april to june and played a several gigs, of which the largest was on Exit festival. The album was released in august, so we are now preparing for live promotion of it, and making new songs for the next album.
