1980s metal music group Kublai Khan released a single well-received album over time of underground existence and opening areas for touring groupings, including Metal Cathedral. Shaped in Minnesota in 1984 by Greg Handevidt (who got just spent a short amount of time in Megadeth) and guitarist Kevin Idso, Kublai Khan became energetic on the neighborhood scene following the addition of bassist Mike Liska and drummer John Fedde. After several opening slots for a few larger brands in steel, including King Gemstone, Kreator, and Steel Cathedral, Kublai Khan discovered itself using a wider group of fans. The band’s debut documenting, Annihilation (1987, New Renaissance), highlighted tracks by Handevidt and Idso. The discharge gained them some interest and compliment, but inner turmoil led to Kublai Khan disbanding simply two years afterwards.
