History

Greece-born Kyriakos Tsilios and Steve Sacco were schoolmates where the latter was trying unsuccessfully to teach Tsiolis how to play guitar. John Lovette started out on bass before switching to guitar. Not to be confused with the many other Aftermaths from places like Texas or Australia, this Mid-western thrash metal band was formed in 1985 and recorded the heralded Killing The Future demo in 1987. A Metal Forces magazine sampler appearance was followed by the Words That Echo Fear demo. Selling a total of 3,000 demos, the band was signed by Big Chief Records (with a Warner distribution) and entered the studio to record its debut. With Big Chief declaring bankruptcy during the recording session, the band formed its own Zoid Recordings and released its sole record.

The album was again released bu Lotus Productions of Greece. The band opened for the likes of Carcass, Trouble and Pitchshifter before splitting. All the band members went on to form a techno band called Mother God Moviestar which signed to Interscope.

In 2015, Commemorating its 30th anniversary, the group was reissuing Eyes Of Tomorrow through Shadow Kingdom Records. This version was remastered by Paul Logus (Pantera, etc.) and comes with an expanded insert. The band also played the Headbangers Open Air.

The band had lost a lawsuit for its monicker to Dr Dre.
