Drawing influence from NWOBHM giants like Judas Priest, along with thrash pioneers like Testament and Metallica, the band underwent multiple personnel changes during its formative years, eventually settling on a core unit the included Cosmin Aioniţă, Adrian Rus, Lucian Grula, Sebastian Stanciu, and Alex Dascaloiu. They released a debut EP, Epicenter, in 2010, followed by their first full-length offering, Ground Zero, in 2014. ~ James Christopher Monger
