MISHKA started shortly after Greg stayed over Mikhail's house in Brooklyn. Greg had just got back from Europe and had purchased a very obscure Black Metal record from a band called Sacrifyx. A band who, it is rumored, died in a plane crash the night after recording their Black Metal opus. The rumor also claimed they buried a powerful prayer to Satan on the record. So of course the boys decided to play the record backwards. Soon after, a gateway opened up in Mikhail's bedroom. What happened after that not to many people are certain, but soon after MISHKA was born!
