Panikk was formed in 2008 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and to this point, they evolved into a vivid thrash act. They play fast and energetic old-school thrash metal influenced by Bay Area thrash acts such as Vio-lence, Forbidden, Forced Entry, Exodus, etc.
In 2009, Panikk recorded a demo, and since then, they played numerous gigs across Slovenia. In 2013, they released their first album, titled Unbearable Conditions, through Slovenian label Metal Tank Records, which immediately gained a wealth of accolades and positive reviews.
In 2014, new drummer Črt Valentić from Mephistophelian joined the Panikk ranks, and Unbearable Conditions was reissued by Xtreem Music with worldwide distribution. In 2015, they played the MetalDays festival, opened for Nuclear Assault, and shredded through many other venues both at home and abroad. In September of that year, Jaka Črešnar replaced Nejc Nardin on lead guitars, and they released the EP Pass the Time. Renewed, the band spent all of 2016 working on their second album, Discarded Existence.
