After the first demo, Martin van Drunen (bass/vocals) joined them. These two demos - Dysentery (1986) and The Penance (1987) - are raw, sounding mostly like a cross between Possessed and Schizophrenia-era Sepultura.

Shortly thereafter, guitarist Randy Meinhard left the band to pursue other musical goals in a new band named SacrosanctThey released four albums before disbanding in order to pursue other musical directions in 1994. « hide
