Ageness was founded in 1991. The debut album Showing Paces was released in 1992, and raised a lot of enthusiasm. In next two years they were doing dozens of gigs, including Down By the Laituri and Helsinki Festivals (to 10,000 people).

In the mid 90s Ageness were very active. 1995 they released the second album Rituals, which gained again an impressive amount of international praise. They headlined the 1996 Colossus Prog Festival with Anekdoten. Also in -97, the Finnish Broadcasting Company FST did a 16-minute TV special "Imageness", including the songs "Line of Force" and "Metamorphosis" from their forthcoming new album. The French label Musea Records was very impressed and offered a worldwide license deal and released Imageness in 1998.

In 1998, two big things happened in the band's career: An official promo video Fear, from their new album was released in the summer of 1998. They also played at the Stoa/Colossus Prog Concert with John Wetton and Ritual from Sweden. In 1999 Ageness performed in a studio concert, which was broadcasted live by Finnish national radio. In the summer 1999 band played for the first time at the famous Ruisrock Festival, and also in Holland and Belgium.

During the following years, Ageness played only on very special occasions, like a few tribute concerts for the Colossus Progressive Association (etc. tributes for Wigwam, Rush or Peter Gabriel). In 2002, they played again with John Wetton and Moongarden.
