A swaggering, barbaric music group of thrash metallers hailing through the wastelands of LA, Crom — yes, these were named following the deity worshipped with a fellow referred to as Conan the Barbarian — shaped in 1992. Their initial slab of warrior steel, the full-length The Cocaine Wars 1974-1989 got a while escaping .
