The debut bandâ€™s concert occurred in april 2004. In summer 2004 the band works on musical material and settles their own rehearsalhouse in garage. At the beginning of autumn Malinconia prepared musical program and was completely ready to perform it. At that time Vitaliy Derevyankin (bass) leaved for England for 6 months.

The new staff was gathered almost right away (by then Vitaliy (bass) had already returned from England). Elena Chebanenko had occupied a place of the keyboard player, Vladimir Shulga became new guitarist. It was decided to take one more guitarist Yury Politko.
