The Battle of Wizna was fought between September 7 and September 10, 1939, between the forces of Poland and Germany during the initial stages of Invasion of Poland. According to Polish historian Leszek Moczulski, between 350 and 720 Poles defended a fortified line for three days against more than 40,000 Germans. Although defeat was inevitable, the Polish defence stalled the attacking forces for three days and postponed the encirclement of Independent Operational Group Narew fighting nearby. Eventually the tanks broke through the Polish line and German engineers eliminated all the bunkers one by one. The last bunker surrendered around midday on September 10.
Because the battle consisted of a small force holding a piece of fortified territory against a vastly larger invasion for three days at great cost before being annihilated, Wizna is sometimes referred to as Polish Thermopylae in Polish culture. One of the symbols of the battle is Captain Władysław Raginis, the commanding officer of the Polish force, who swore to hold his position as long as he was alive. When the last two bunkers under his command ran out of ammunition, he ordered his men to surrender their arms and committed suicide by throwing himself on a live grenade.

"Wicked Garden" was created as the idea of Dario Bulatovic and Vedran Cecelje. Long-time friends also share the interest and love of rock music in the 90s, especially grunge. Matej Hoyt, a friend of Darius and a member of the band, was soon found in this story. They got a call to go to the 90th Rock Classical Concert for the Night of the Museum 2012. and agreed. On the first try they saw that there was chemistry, professionalism and most importantly, that it was fun to play. All three have years of experience with instruments, Vedran and Matej are classical musicians, and it is especially interesting that in some things Matew plays cello, Vedran drum or guitar, sings etc. Soon Mihovil Konečni, who plays everything, joins the band. They also combine a fiery set and an unplugged set to provide an evening full of different emotions, an evening where people can swim and chill for a few minutes with the beer. Prepare for Alice in Chain, Stone Temple Pilots, Nirvana, Metallica, Foo Fighters etc.
