F

ounded by guitarist Allen West (soon after leaving for Obituary) and drummer Bill Andrews, followed by the arrival of soon-to-be-leader Death member Kam Lee (vocals) and fellow Death member Rick Rozz (guitar) in 1986. They would soon after recruit Terry Butler (bass) and Bill Andrews (drums) to work on demo material before calling it quits with everyone but Lee to work with Death on the 1988 Leprosy album.

Lee would reform the act in 1989 with Rozz and drummer Joe Cangelosi (of Whiplash). An album was recorded by the name of Second Coming but was never released. With such a pedigree behind them it was only a matter of time before they were discovered and soon enough 'Earache' came calling and upon the return of Butler and Andrews to restart the band to it's original membership, their debut album From Beyond was released in 1991 containing mostly material from their demo days. The 1992 follow-up EP, Inhuman Conditions, includinga cover of Venom's Warhead even going so far as to feature the aforementioned act's Cronos as guest vocalist. After Pete Sison and Syrus Peters replaced Butler and Andrews respectively they would finally release another effort in 1996 titled Promise; the album was not received well and the act folded for good soon after.


Footnote: Not related to the Bill Laswell act also called Massacre.
