Inviktus has its roots in the 2004 Freedom Jam where Vishwath and Prasad looked at the bands playing and said "We should do this" - Only to go home and promptly forget all about it. Blame the (overpriced) alcohol.
Interest in forming a band was renewed in February, when all the frustration that college life is known for began screaming for an outlet. Along with potential band mates Karan and Jeevan, the as of then unnamed band had their first jam session on February 8th, 2005. Two weeks later they added band member Biwi and the band was complete.
