The band was formed in 1983 by three brothers: Mario (electric guitar), John (bass, vocals) and Stefan Flores (drums) under the name Titan. [1] Together, they recorded a demo that contained four songs. [2] Guitarist and keyboardist Bill Richardson joined the band following the demo release. [3] They played some local gigs and opened concerts by Jag Panzer. In 1989, their self-titled debut album was released on US Metal Records, with Jag Panzer lead singer, Harry Conklin, on vocals. In 1991, the band released their second studio album, Winner / Loser. Following a tour in Germany with Anvil and Scene X Dream, the band separated from their label and returned to the United States.

The band has continued to make occasional appearances on stage, such as at Bang Your Head!!!, a German heavy metal and hard rock festival.
