History

Born in 1986 and named after a witch in a Disney story, Cruella was initially a quintet. DeCarlo formed the band after the folding of XINR following the death of two members of the latter band in a motorcycle accident. The group featured bassist Kate "Fate" Wilson (soon fired), Kirk Johnson on second guitar (who would leave the band to go to war and the army) and Wes Johnson on drums. A demo was called Metal Revenge. Another demo was called Power Metal. Cruella played a cross between thrash and power metal. With Nolan's departure, the band's drummer took over the vocals on Shock The World. The band hailed from Oregon. The group split up in 1990, reformed and definitively threw in the towel in 1992.

The band’s albums were re-released by Heaven & Hell Records in 2017, which followed the 1989 reissues by US Metal.
