Fist was one of several early NWOBHM bands who were snapped up by MCA Records at about the same time, along with Quartz, Tygers Of Pan Tang, and White Spirit. Their sound wasn't too different from their contemporaries, with the exception being they had a slightly more melodic feel to their songs. Two albums were released, and like many other NWOBHM bands, they faded away soon after, disbanding in 1984. A reunion in 2001 eventually led to the 2005 release of Storm, and after that version of the band folded, another reincarnation started up in 2013.
