Svarog was formed on November 1993 by the guitarist Zoran Đuroski “Đura Mysterious” (a former Brainstorm, Crist, SMF, Pussycat and Overdose member), vocalist Boško Blažić (a former Sunrise member), drummer Vladimir Vilovski “Šola” (a former Brainstorm and Sick Mother Fakers member) and bassist Milan Barković “Bare” (a former Pussycat member). The band was one of the first Serbian sludge/doom metal bands in Serbia.
