Based out of MEMPHIS, TN, the band know early on in the later 80's by such names as "Minas Morgul", "Jeremiah Weed" and "Shocker" got it's start when Chuck Gordon got together with Mike Atkinson to help him get started playing bass. Along with various singers and drummers (current vocalist Brice Hamrick among them), the band set out to craft a unique metal style that cannot be pinned down to sounding like any other band. These 3 guys have been playing music together for over 25 years. That's quite an accomplishment even for a signed band. The band has always been a relatively tight knit group with only a handful of other players involved at various points. Now in 2011 with Brice back on the vocals and Gary Dacus on the drums, the band is on a determined mission to bring original material to the masses, the band has amassed an impressive roster of 30+ songs completely their own. The band prides itself on not playing any covers. As Chuck often says, "You wouldn't go to see Metallica and ask them to play some AC/DC".
