Chateaux was a prototypical Ebony Records band, meaning that they played decent, typical NWOBHM styled metal with somewhat low-budget recording/production values. They managed to recruit Grim Reaper vocalist Steve Grimmett to sing on their Chained And Desperate debut, with his performance a bit more controlled and less histrionic than his later recordings. Two more albums were released, and they were done. Virtually the entire catalog was released on a two-CD collection entitled Fight To The Last, released in 2003 by Sanctuary Records.
