KrOnic started as a project by Zumar to create a few instrumentals joining hands with Imtiaz. They tried to develop something they thought could be quite interesting. Zumar being just more than a starter in the field of guitar playing, but with a brilliant creativity and talent approached Imtiaz, who at that time played keyboards and guitars for fun, messing around with different tunes and sound effects, yet just trying to catch a sound he could call a little different.

After a month or two, a new guitarist Ahad joins the formation. Imtiaz switches to bass. Jointly they start recording bits and pieces of their compositions which had become a plural number. In the mean time, Nafeez joins the band coming back from Canada as the drummer. The fixed band line up hence became - Zumar ( Guitars/Vocals ), Imtiaz ( Bass/Vocals ), Ahad ( Guitars ) and Nafeez ( Drums & Percussions ). Personal problems however forces Ahad to quit the band, who is then replaced by Rousseau. But Rousseau leaves for higher studies and Saadi takes the position of lead guitarist. However, Rousseau and Zumar are still active members of the band regardless of living abroad for the time being.

Participated in numerous concerts.
Released the song ‘Ditio Prohor' in the mixed compilation album ‘Agontuk' in 2003.
Released KrOnic's debut album ‘Asroy' in 2005. The album was sold out within five days of release.
