It was the brainchild of two musician friends namely Wayne Static and drummer Ken Jay. Initially these two played in a local hard rock band named Deep Blue and later joined Stygian which was a metal band from Chicago. Both Jay and Static decided to form their own band and moved to Los Angeles. Here they were joined by heavy metal guitarist Koichi Fukuda and bass guitarist Tony Campos. For a very long time the band lineup didn’t change but recently Campos has been replaced by Brent Ashley on bass, guitarist Ashes has filled in for Fukuda and Sean Davidson is now on drums.
