I was approached by Claudeous Creamer (now in Possessed) & Mark Sprague (who I had previously played with in Restrayned) in Sacramento to form a new band. Claudeous said he knew another guitarist, Mark Miner, who was also interested. The four of us met up at a Starbucks in late 2014 & went over a game plan to form a new band. We listened to each others demos and decided it would be a good fit. On the initial meeting we thought it might be more of a “modern metal” band, but soon discovered the stuff we had in common were influences stemming from classic metal & heavy metal. Bands such as Ozzy, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and too many others to name from that era. These are the main influences. This became the musical direction for the band.
