The band made its recording debut in 1993 with Mikä Ihmeen Apulanta? (1993). Following a couple more EPs the next year, Apulanta made their full-length album debut in 1995 with Attack of the A.L. People. Late in the year, the band released the Hajonnut EP (1995), whose song "Mitä Kuuluu" was a smash hit.
