=== Formation and first EPs (2011 - 2012) ===
Originally meant to be an experimental project of the two members of a nu-metal band TimeTwisT Alexander Zaitsev and Anton Chugurov, Abstract Deviation soon became a full-fledged progressive metal act as the founders were greatly surprised and inspired by the music they created. They decided to invite their old friend Alexander Buslaev, who was already an experienced prog-metal bass player, to the band. As for the drummer search, the situation was terribly complex, but when hope was almost abandoned the band contacted Nekit, which showed the skills and musicality that suited the band just right. Keyboard player Andrew 'Orochi-chan' Sazonov became an addition to the band, soon accompanied by Alisa, the band's new vocalist.
