Elixir

Elixir's 1986 debut, Son Of Odin, was released during the waning years of the NWOBHM movement and generated a fair bit of interest, and their 1990 followup was notable for including ex-Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr. They never really rose above cult status but have recorded sporadically throughout the years, admirably with a pretty stable lineup. Their last official breakup was in 2012, but in 2019 the same fivesome decided to give it another go.
