The band was established in December 2015 by guitarists Míra Litomerický (ex-Return To Innocence) and Tomáš Sršeň (ex-Mean Messiah). The band was completed by Tomáš Lebenhart on drums (Alter in Mind) and bassguitarist David Hradílek (Vidock, ex-Törr) in spring 2016 and is active since then. In November 2016 is recorded first EP called „InnerSphere – EP“ also a lineup change happened. On guitar came Lukáš Mai (Sinetrium) and on bass guitar Jan „Kaťas“ Karel (Self-Hatred, Llyr). The band continues on writting a new, more progressive material for first full lenght record.
In spring 2017 happened first minitour – „Spring Storm Tour“ with Torharry and Six Degrees of Separation. Songs of Innersphere are first played on an indie radio shows.

In 2019 the band tours alongside NAHUM with another befriended band Purnama. The “Within Destruction tour” contains many concerts mostly in CZ/SK/PL and is a celebration to a new Nahum record and their 15 years anniversary. During this tour Innersphere fill the schedule with more shows in Austria, Croatia and Slovakia – totally playing over 40 shows in 7 countries in 2019. You can see them for example on Death Coffee party festival (CZ) in June or GOATHELL Metal festival in Pula (CRO).
For the year 2020 there were ambitious plans – Innersphere were to play on Flame of Rebellion tour with Purnama and a new album was recorded. Nobody expected that Covid crisic will occur – this stopped the actual tour and many festivals and events were rescheduled to autumn or year 2021. We too expirienced a personal change former drummer Tomáš Lebi Lebenhart departed from the band and Filip Wintr took over his place. In this new lineup we prepared and recorded a new full lenght album in May 2020 – the album was recorded, mixed and mastered in The Barn Studio by Dan Friml. The new album “Omfalos” was released in February 2021 under Slovak Metal Army records and recived rather positive feedback.
Since that, Innersphere supported the Omfalos release and returned to playing live shows as soon as restictions allowed it, returning for example to Brutal Assalut 2021. Year 2022 once again brought various new challanges and approach. We played a number of shows and different festivals, mainly in Germany and the Czech republic, playing at festivals such as Basinefirefest, Vienna metal meeting, Mammut festival and many more. Innersphere too recorded a whole new album in September of 2022 which is now fully mastered and will be released in 2023.

“Blossoms of death that dwell within my head
Red river called “The Grief” flows silent inside of me
A vision of sunrise is far gone
So dive and drown in the thousands of blossoms”
