Bjesovi

Profile:
The band was formed in 1989 under the name "Baader-Meinhof". After changing the name to "Saint Gallen" and later to "China Blue", the band got the name "Bjesovi" (by a Dostoyevsky book The Possessed). Marić and Marinković, both vocalists and lyrics/music authors, were backed by Predrag Dabić and Goran Filipović on guitars, Božidar Tanaskovic on bass and Goran Ugarčina on drums.

The band then won the Čačak Guitar Festival in 1989 and recorded their debut album U osvit zadnjeg dana ("At The Last Day's Dawn") released only on cassette.

The year 1991 brought the band a new lineup since Ugarčina and Tanasković left the band and were replaced by Dejan Petrović on bass and Miroslav Marjanović on drums. The band then won the Zaječar Guitar Festival in 1993 and Brzi Bendovi Srbije festival (Fast Serbian Bands Festival) in 1994, which eventually led to a recording of a new album. The untitled album, or simply Bjesovi as many people call it, proved not only to be their finest studio effort but one of the best works of Serbian/ex Yugoslav bands.

Following the success of the second album, the band entered the studio to record their third studio album Sve što vidim i sve što znam ("All I See And All I Know") and after thirteen months the album was released. Unlike the previous record, the band made deals with religious topics, the end of socialism and more optimistic ambient.

In the meantime, the Untitled album was re-released by One Records. On March 22, 2002, the band recorded their appearance in Gornji Milanovac. During the summer in the Free Zone Studio in Belgrade the recordings were remixed and post produced in a way the band thought it would be best. Na živo skipped the first album and focused on the second, with five, and third, with two songs. It also featured three new tracks.

In 2006, the band appeared at Zaječar Guitar Festival and beside their classics presented a new track "Bolje ti" ("You Better") which would appear on the new album. In the meantime Zoran Filipović, who played guitar on the first three albums, returned to the band as a bass player. The band recorded twelve new songs in Češnjak studio in Kragujevac, and then moved to Vršac to for the mixing of the album.
