Cydia was formed in 2007 in Samara, Russia. The founders are: Oleg Zoob (guitar) and Stas Nobody (guitar/vocal). After a while, Oleg Bizon (drums) and Ed Coffee (bass) joined to the band. Groove Metal based on the Melodic Death Metal became a reference point in musical direction.
At the end of 2007 the band spread through the web their demo-EP “Diary Of Freak” which besides Groove obviously tapped elements of Nu Metal. At the same time the band engaged in successful concerts activity.

In May 2012 a single “The Last Groan” was released, and video for the same track was shot. Also the track was appeared in Metal Scrap Records XX Anniversary compilation album.
