The band, driven by the abrasive guitars and energetic personality of Tommy Massara, came to light in Milan, Italy, during the cold winter of 1986.

1993 saw the release of their first studio album ‘Tension at the seams’. The end of 1993 saw the release of the mini LP ‘Proud, powerful ‘n’ alive’, which included the superb cover of the Dead Kennedy’s hit ‘Too drunk to fuck’.

1995 saw the recording of ‘The positive pressure of injustice’. During 1996 and 1999, the extrema war machine, paused a while to dedicate time towards various side projects and “collaborations”.

In 2001 the album ‘Better mad than dead’ showed the world that they were back.

In 2005 the band entered the Rodger Music Studios to record their latest offering, ‘Set the world on fire’. Their 20 years career was celebrated with the release of the live cd ‘Raisin’ Hell with friends: live at the Rolling Stone’ (recorded at Milan’s Rolling Stone during the latest italian tour) and the gigantic double DVD ‘Murder tunes & broken bones – 20 years anniversary DVD’, containing almost 4 hours of live material (including the now legendary gig with metallica at turin’s stadio delle alpi in 1993), backstage video footage and tons of extras.

But it’s now time to talk about the band’s long-waited brand-new album, ‘pound for pound’, set to be released in May 2009 on Scarlet Records, followed in 2013 by the album “The seed of foolishness”.

In 2016 see the light “The old school EP”.
