History

The Montreal band was initially deemed a hardcore act but was later accepted by metal fans as a solid thrash metal band with a progressive touch. The band was reportedly dropped when it consumed its advance for a third album on narcotics and later had a member succumb to HIV. Dakin went on to do graphics work.

The band's most famous song, The Genesis Explosion, was the basis for a television advertisement campaign in Canada in 2004 for a telephone company. A reformed band was booked for The Montreal Metal Massacre Fest with the likes of Razor, Anvil and Exciter in December of 2005.

Rockatak Productions (which in the past has managed Voivod, Obliveon and Cryptopsy) organized a three-day festival celebrating the 25th Anniversary of metal made in the Canadian province of Quebec in the summer of 2007. This event feature a dozen bands, including eight which were reuniting specifically for this occasion. The festival was set to take place at Club Soda in Montreal from August 31st to September 2nd. Bands like Obliveon, DBC and Necrotic Mutation would take part. As well, the deceased Piggy of Voivod would be inducted into something called the Quebec Metal Hall Of Fame.
