23/05/14 - Vocalist Tim Leaves the Band

Our singer Tim has decided to part ways with us and move onto pastures new. Tim's been with the band since October 2013, so just over a year and a half, and we've played some great gigs together. We thank him for his contribution to the band and wish him all the best in the future.

16/01/14 - New Drummer

After a long search we've finally found ourselves a new drummer. We're very happy to welcome Mark Bottomley to the band. Mark has been a big Dio fan for many years and impressed us with his knowledge of the material and also his playing ability.

For the first time in quite a while we now have a full line-up and we'll hopefully be back gigging again soon.

07/08/13 - Web Page Launched

Our new web site launched today. Only 2 pages at the moment, 'Home' and 'Gigs', but we'll be adding more over the coming weeks. It's still a work in progress, and it still needs a lot of work, but it's good to finally get something out there.
