History

The group began its assault courtesy of Thomas St. Jones (Keyboards), Andy Kammer (Guitar) and Ricky Van Helden in Hannover in 1984. Soon enough Attack was the domain of singer and bassist Ricky Van Helden. Van Helden further anchored Attack with the occasional drumming and guitar playing. The band's first vinyl appearance was a single called Mouse In A Maze in 1984. Attack played heavy/power metal and underwent complete line-up overhauls between its debut and sophomore releases, sophomore and third releases and upon regrouping at the end of the 1980s.

Kammer and Tros were on the debut, Niewidok and Franz and Ewermann were on the second outing and were all replaced after the respective albums.

A compilation album entitled Revitalize was issued in 1994 which also featured rare and unreleased songs. Compilations and re-releases have been on the attack ever since.
