With vocals and guitar work similar to Prong, mixed with Alternative bands and techno-industrial sounds Thorn, featuring the line-up of John Jesse (vocals/bass),Stephen Flam (ex-Winter; guitar/back. vocals) and Roy Mayorga (ex-Medication; drums) started in 1994. In 1994 they would release several discs, the first two Pacing (1994) and She Rises Like The Sun (1994) being only EPs on indie labels. It wasn't until 1995 that they released their debut album proper, Bitter Potion. With drummer Roy Mayorga later joining Soulfly, however, the future of the band is in question.
