INJURY was formed by Danijel Levatic (lyrics, vocals & samples) and Jurica Majnaric
(programming) in late 1994. in Varazdin (Croatia) with purpose to experiment with
electronic & industrial sounds and noises. Latter in summer of 1995. the first
song for the forthcoming material was finished. The name of the song “Mass Murder
In The Land Of Terror”. For this track INJURY recorded a black & white video clip,
on well known Varazdin cemetery in collaboration with VTV (Varazdin TV station).
“Mass Murder In The Land Of Terror” video was presented to the audience for the
first time on the underground party “Fisia” in club EX (Varazdin) on the 20. January
1996. and than later on VTV (Varazdin) and on the national TV station HTV (Zagreb)
in the alternative music show "Izvan struje". The song has been presented on some
radio stations across Croatia and was sent to New Jersey / New York (USA) Radio
WRPR - 90.3 MHz, and has been airplayed in a show called “From the other side”
and in France on Radio Station AGORA 94 FM in the very popular Doctor Avalance
Radioshow. In Croatia “Mass Murder In The Land Of Terror” reached number 8. on
the radio show “Alter Indie Chart” (Top 30) of the famous Croatian Radio station
“101” (Zagreb). At that time INJURY was better received than some big names like:
Garbage, Lush, Radiohead, Ministry & Smashing Pumpkins.
Late in 1996. the material for promo tape was finished. Eight dark electro/industrial
songs, each one with the different story. In the music, INJURY combines dark electronics
with industrial sounds and distortions. With this kind of approach INJURY try
to express their visions of the dark, cruel and brutal world that we live in.
Themes that are used in songs deal with dark sides of society, morbid people’s
minds, people’s fears, ... Promo tape was sent to some labels in USA, Germany
and to famous Belgian Side Line Magazine.
In the tape section of the magazine INJURY received good critics and a good score
(7 out of 10 points).
In 1997. after some contacts with people from different labels, INJURY signed
contracts with two of them: ORA MUSIC (USA)
and SOUNDBUSTER (Germany) to participate on the compilations SONOLOGIE ONE (ORA
Music) - released in 1998 and TOMORROW NEVER CAME III (Soundbuster) - released
in August 1998.
Also in 1997. Danijel established a good collaboration with Strategy from the
famous Austrian electro formation TRYLOK and
that was the beginning of the project called TRYLOK vs. INJURY. From this collaboration
project a song “Guardian Angel” was born. Danijel wrote lyrics and Strategy did
vocals and composed music. “Guardian Angel” appeared on 3 compilation CD-s in
USA, Germany and Canada and it is included on the debute STRATEGY album "INTENSE"
released in March '99.
In 1998. Jurica Majnaric left the project, so INJURY is since then, one man project.
The song “Mass Murder In The Land Of Terror” was sent to well known German band
FUNKER VOGT for remix. After this remix
was finished an idea about remix project was born. Collaboration was established
with some other great electro / industrial names for a contribution to this upcoming
At the moment INJURY is concentrated in this remix project, which will include
