Trespass

Trespass seemed to be a can't-miss band from the NWOBHM era. They first appeared on the Metal For Muthas Vol 2 compilation, with their two featured tracks ("One Of These Days" and "Stormchild") clearly the best of the bunch, with a somewhat more melodic take than most of their contemporaries. They did release an EP in 1981 entitled Bright Lights, but after that they seemed to disappear. Eventually it came to light that they had mutated into Blue Blood (and/or Blueblud), by which time they apparently had moved more into the melodic rock genre rather than pursuing anything metallic. In the intervening years a few compilations have surfaced, packaging various demos, radio appearances, and the like. There's also Head, a full-length album released in 1993 of which not a lot is known (curiously, the tracks there don't appear on the compilations). In 2015 a self-titled effort was released, again featuring the core trio of the Sutcliffe brothers and David Crawte, re-recording some of their old classics. Finally, Mark Sutcliffe is carrying on with an all-new lineup and an album released in early 2018.
