Extinkt was founded in 2012 by Uappa (Terrordome) and Tom (ex-Terrordome and ex-Fortress), later completed with Pablo (former ex-Asylum and Kompromitacja). The band started rehearsing in May 2012 and completed a demo material in Zakopane.
By the beginning of 2015, Pablo left the band, making room for a new drummer – Dziadu (Psychopath). The debut album Postnuclear Trip to Nowhere was released in April 2016 by Defense Records. The fall of 2016 brought the first music video to the song "Besetting Affliction".
Extinkt is highly influenced by the literature and cinema of the 80s’ and 90s’, with main theme of destruction of humanity and the post nuclear war. The music itself refers to the darker kinds of hardcore / thrash with elements of doom metal, influenced by bands such as Carnivore, Tragedy or Doom.
