As it turns out, this was another of those secret project bands, this one led by Virgin Steele's David DeFeis and unleashed by the same folk who came up with two other fake bands, Piledriver and Convict. Exact details on Exorcist are hard to come by. There are reports that Exorcist was a real band, that collapsed in the studio during the records of the album, and DeFeis (originally hired as producer) finished the project on his own. More likely it was probably just another attempt by some record execs to make some money, and DeFeis (and who else, no one seems to know) were hired for the job. It is not known whether any of the names listed on the album are real or not. Regardless of what's really true, Nightmare Theatre is a pretty enjoyable album that harkens back to the good old days of 80's underground metal.
