At that time Epicardiectomy played a few shows but because of constant changes in line-up many of them have been cancelled and haven’t remained any more or less qualitatively made records for that period of time. The line-up has been definitively completed in year of 2009 with the arrival of Tom on vocals (WWW, Luco Brazzi) and Serge on guitar (Fleshbomb, ex-Katalepsy, God’s Eye Cataract).
