Toranaga was part of a cadre of British thrash bands that sprouted up in the late eighties, recording a fine debut EP (Bastard Ballads) for the Peaceville label before being snapped up by major label Chrysalis for their debut full-length album, God's Gift. Despite some good reviews, the album didn't seem to fare that well, perhaps due to label non-support (Armored Saint suffered a similar fate at the hands of Chrysalis). Eventually EMI bought out their contract, the band went broke, and never recorded again.
