Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, the band built a name for themselves through Midwest tour dates and their 2007 album Monuments on Melissa Records. Last year the core of the band, Steve Handel and guitarist Alex Ritchey relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada to team up with Avenger of Blood drummer Shannon Frye to complete the ‘Prelude to Madness’ EP, issued late 2009 by Heaven and Hell Records.
The band’s debut for the label has been met with rave reviews worldwide as anticipation grows for their second full length.
"The new material is more aggressive than past efforts, and all of us involved, feel that this music is much more matured. And to be working with Lance Swain again on this project will be great!" - guitar/ vocalist Steve Handel.
