Mills (guitar), Tony Newton (bass) i Sean Elg (drums), who replaced the injured player before recording the debut album “Sermons of the Sinner” Les Binksthe music of Judas Priest from 1977 to 1979.

Let us recall that when leaving the metal legend, KK Downing stated that there were at least 21 reasons for leaving, including: lack of cooperation with “team elements and management”. Years later, he performed with his former colleagues at the metal legend’s induction ceremony Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in November 2022

The songs for the second album were produced and written by Downing, and mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen. He was responsible for the graphic design Andy Pilkington.
