Loch Vostok rose out of the collapse of Progressive Metal band Mayadome in 2001. After 10 years Drummer Teddy M”ller was tired of the cheeze and decided to start something meatier - Loch Vostok was born. Three core members, Mayadome founder Teddy M”ller, Keyboardist Sebastian Okupski and Bass Player Erik Grandin set about formulating a new act. M”ller would switch from his erstwhile role as a drummer to that of lead vocalist/guitarist and with the incorporation of former El Presidente guitarist Niklas Kupper alongside ex Imperial Domain drummer Alvaro Svaner” the band was complete. However, Grandin was to relocate to the USA and so former Mellow Poetry guitarist Tomas "Tym" Jonsson stepped in to fill the bass vacancy. Utilizing producer Daniel Bergstrand, Loch Vostok cut a self-financed album "Dark Logic" entirely based upon infamous serial killers such as Henry Lee Lucas, Andreij Tzjikatilo and Ed Gein. The first label to pick up the album for distribution would be the Russian concern CD-Maximum. Shortly after the Russian release, Portugese label Magnetism Records contracted Loch Vostok, and released "Dark Logic" worldwide August 1st 2004.
