Substance Black was an Industrial Metal band formed in Zagreb, Croatia in 2009 by members Bojan Gradiš, Ivor Stipetić and Luka Đanić. They decided to leave the experimental phase of metal and to concentrate heavily on industrial metal as their primary genre style. During the winter of 2010 Igor “Deimos” Čeranić joins them on the electronics, as well as Dominik “Q” Dojčinović as the rhythm guitar player.
After that, they recorded their first EP which was released on 16/07/2011. The second album was finished by 2013, but technical difficulties resulted in abandoning the project.
