IGNEA was started in Kiev, Ukraine back in 2011 under name Parallax. Intentionally, it was the first Ukrainian band to play oriental metal. The band, however, didn't limit itself to strict boundaries of oriental metal, and included elements from symphonic, industrial, modern, progressive and other modern subgenres of metal. In 2013, the band entered Morton Studio, well-known rock and metal studio in Ukraine, to record its debut EP, titled Sputnik.

In 2013, the band prepared a follow-up single titled Petrichor, featuring bouzoukitara playing and a guitar solo from Yossi Sassi, at that moment the guitarist of oriental metal fathers band, Orphaned Land.

In 2015, the band finally changed its name to IGNEA and released a new work called Alga, named after a war call of Crimean Tatar people. This song is contributed to Crimeans who are defending their land.

Alga is the first ever original song from a Ukrainian band, recorded with a full symphonic orchestra.

In December 2016, IGNEA released Halves Rupture, a track from the first full-length album "The Sign of Faith". The album is going to have a heavier sound, with lots of growls and authentic middle-eastern melodies, common for oriental metal genre. However, the music will keep melodic fundamentals and OST feeling.
