Who Are They?
Andy Smith: Guitarist-Vocalist-Delivery Man founded the band in the summer of 1988 under the moniker, Cemetery. Not being fully pleased with this cliche heavy metal name, the band felt they needed a more original tag to describe their style.

After exhausting the talents of two bass players, two rhythm guitarists, and one drummer — the band now believes that it has the right ingredients to complete their goal.
The ingredients are: Steve Steelman, drummer/locksmith, and Eric Clark, bassist/gigolo.
