Hatecraft band was formed in September of 2001 by Alexander "Stepan" Stepashkin (bass, vocal), Alexander Kharavin (guitar) and Victor (drums). In November of 2001 the musicians got their 1st studio experience recording their 3 song demo. After that Victor Drujinin left Hatecraft and his place at the drums took up Boris "HyperBoryan" Oreshkin. Inspired by the new drummer the band activated preparing the concert program and material for record. By this time Hatecraft got a huge creative & material support from their new friend Uri Klochkov who began "an engine" of the band.
