Sonic Particles was shaped in Norway in 1995. The account at that time was Morten Bergseth (drums), Knut Bergaust (bass), and Tommy Nilsen (electric guitar). A calendar year later, these were joined up with by Rune Sørheim (business lead vocals). The lineup was comprehensive in 1998 when Peter Ringvold (keyboards) became a member of the group. The group released their initial record, Velvet Thorns in 2000.
