Essentially a satanist hard rock outfit, collectors are showing more interest in their albums now. Their best known song was "Come To The Sabbat", by virtue of its inclusion of the budget double LP, "Fill Your Head With Rock" compilation. A fourth album was also recorded but remained unreleased until 1998.  Gannon later played with Fox and Yellow Dog. Challenger later drummed for Showaddywaddy.
