The band was formed in the summer of 1995. In January 1996 the band entered the studio for the first time and recorded Demo1. After a while, melodic Deathrash style was enriched with keyboards, which lead to many inovations during 1997 and later. As a result of all that Demo2 was created, Live In Central Club, where a great musical advance could be felt. In that time and later Amon Din had a reputation of a concert active band, and that has been confirmed by many concerts in Serbia.
After a while, in January 1999, Amon Din entered the Cassablanca studio (Belgrade), where the material for the debut album was recorded. Because of the financial situation and the NATO intervention in the country, the band wasn't able to finish everything before November. The creation called Dinamoneyezed finally came to daylight during the first half of the year 2000 (Dinamoneyezed line-up: Sasa Sarcevic - vocals, Nebojsa Sarcevic - guitars, Nikola Rajevac - guitars, Sasa Stefanovic - bass, Bosko Rankovic - drums, Predrag and Andrija Jovanovic - percussions, Boris Novakovic - keyboards).With the release of the DIY tape, Amon Din participated in three compilations: Scream Until YU Like It for the Belgrade Rock Express Records (Umbra + Destiny as bonus track), Awaken compilation VOL. 2 from Prigrevica (again Umbra), and in one Australian compilation (In Dread Of Insanity).
In the meantime Dinamoneyezed became one of the best selling underground records in Serbian history. It sold more than 1000 copies in the region, and the band achived great base of fans. They also played as a Paul Dianno support act(March 2002).
In the period 2002-2004 due to line-up and military troubles, the band paused their work.
In 2005 Amon Din finally deserved their status of leading death metal act in Serbia. They played at several shows, most impressive of which was their performence at the Exit festival, when they played after Slayer. This moment was one of the highlights in their career since they played in front of 3000 people. They also shared stage with Napalm Death and Agnostic Front. After the Exit festival they played with Vital Remains, a legendary death metal act from USA.
On 1st January 2006 Dinamoneyezed was re-released in CD format by Walk Records. It recived a great response from fans and critics. Now they are working on a new album titled Where Dream No Longer Exists. They are also scheduled as a support act in Europe tours for leading death metal acts such as Sinister, Vader and Morbid Angel.
