After Anton Dimitrov – guitars (ITSI), Rumen Minev – bass (Skre4) and Viktor Stoyanov – drums joined, K.O.R.A. recorded three live videos at Ampsonair and were participating concerts both in the capital city and across the country. Several months later Anton and Viktor left the band and Julius Diamandiev (Full Circle, ex. Granulom, ex. 40 days later) joined as a drummer and Hristo Zanev (40 days later, ex. Fyeld, ex. Full Circle) as guitarist. During the next months the band released a lyrical video for a track called “A Good Place But Not My Home” as well as their first video for the track “Unacceptable”. Meanwhile they continued being part of the Bulgarian live metal scene and managed to finish the demo tracks for the debut album. At the of 2013, Julius started recording the drums at the “Na Vilata” studio. Several months later “Out Of The Box” was completed and the album promotion took place at club “Bar Zar” in Sofia.
