This British band managed a self-titled effort on the tiny Guardian label near the tail end of the NWOBHM movement, featuring a style typical of the genre. By 1988 the band was done and seemed destined for the NWOBHM archives, but vocalist Mark Duffy resurrected the name in 2015, recruiting a new lineup. They put out Caught In a Warzone in 2016, a collection of earlier recordings by the original band, followed by the proper comeback album Awakening in late 2017.

Recent album: The Sign Of Evil, released on May 19, 2023.
