Tyrant  


Formed in 1978 by basst Greg May (brother Glen was drafted in as a vocalist a couple of years later), Tyrant followed the route of many an 80's Los Angeles metal band by appearing on a Metal Massacre compilation (their track, "The Battle Of Armageddon", was one of the highlights of Metal Massacre III) and went on to record two albums on Metal Blade Records, displaying the typical Judas Priest-style power metal and leather/spikes image that was popular at the time. Little was heard from the band for several years following Too Late To Pray's release in 1987, but in the mid-nineties they gave it another go, releasing King Of Kings in 1996, and have since kept busy with the odd tribute album appearance.
