Hexagon was formed in 1980 under the name Rockbris by Tommy Trnborg (drums), Hkan "Krax" Karlsson (guitar), Roger "Bogge" Svensson (bass) and Micke "Snucke" Carlsson (now Eklund) (vocals, guitar). At the beginning they played covers-songs such as "Cadillac", "Lets Dance", "Johnny B Goode" etc but after a while they started to write their own material. Their first song was called "Staden r Vr". In 1981-1982 Tommy was replaced with Jonas Thome and Hkan by Kricka Karlsson. The name was changed to Paradise and they recorded their first demo at Medborgarskolans Studio in Norrkping. The tape included the songs: "Jorden r Rund", Heta Killar & "Diamanter". Paradise later got to open for Factory at Ramunderskolans auditorium. They also played at the Focus recreation center and attended a rock-contest at Brunnsladan organized by Studiefrmjandet (the boogie-rock band Bderna Spark from stra Ryd won).

In 1983 the band changed name to Hexagon and started to play heavier music. They wrote their own songs and recorded a 3-track demo at a studio in Finspng (tracklist: "We Want Information", "Let's Spend The Night Together", " (Up In The Sky) I Want to fly"). Hexagon made their last gig at Sderkpings Kanaldag at Rdhustorget 1984. Kricka later played with band such as Blaise and Backstaqe. Bogge joined Allegiance and later Marduk.
