Spinning Black Circle was formed in Umeå, Sweden in late 2003. Starting with three guitarists the search for members began. In early 2004, with a vocalist missing in the lineup, SBC entered the studio and recorded four instrumental tracks. The recording was sent out to different vocalists and after continuous mailing of audio files, SBC finally met with Joakim Åström. He joined SBC with his lyrics, but most of all, with his amazing voice. In early 2005 SBC recorded the Hymnus Ira EP for the first time with a full lineup. With great reviews of the EP, and after great reviews of concerts in Sweden, SBC entered the studio again in May 2006. This time for a full-length, self-produced album. In the summer of 2006, after being watch during a concert in Umeå, SBC signed with the French booking/label Spay Prod. On February 6th 2007 the self-titled debut was released in France followed by a nation wide headline French tour in March. March 30 2007, the album was released by Spay Prod and Sound Pollution in Scandinavia. 2008, the band got separated due to differents opinions intra-band.
