Hailing from North Carolina, Cerebus was one of several bands snapped up by the young New Renaissance label in the mid-eighties, and their sole album, Too Late To Prey, is a fine representation of the state of indie metal back then, traditional Priest/Maiden-ish metal bordering on speed metal. A couple of rare EPs were later put out but the band never really gained traction and faded away in the early nineties.
