Taramis is a somewhat obscure Australian group, whose debut album Queen Of Thieves has a slightly progressive feel but is otherwise straightforward metal, not bad for it's time. Metal Blade apparently saw something in the band, and licensed the album in the US. A few years later, the band resurfaced with a new lineup and album. In general there is more of a progressive feel, and also more of a thrash sound -- Stretch Of The Imagination might remind one of Realm, or perhaps a tamer version of Watchtower. The band broke up in 1994, played a reunion gig in late 1998 (leading to some rumors of a permanent reformation and/or new recordings), and is now permanently disbanded.
