Before practically introducing industrial music to CCM, Jyro and Jerome formed the band Mortal Desire in 1988 with Wilson Peralta and Ray Tongpo. The group released a demonstration cassette, but afterwards shortened the name and lowered Peralta and Tongpo. Mortal’s initial album, Lusis, made an appearance in 1992 for the Intense label; the solo “Mytho-X” became popular for the Christian steel charts as well as the duo had been named the very best brand-new band of 1992 within a CCM visitors’ poll. Mortal added even more guitars for 1993’s Fathom, but discontinued the group right before saving Wake, that was released the next year. Even so, another final record made an appearance in 1996. The duo continue steadily to produce as Bloodstream (with Tag Rodriguez) and record as Flip Zandura, and also have released a live Mortal EP, Intense Live Series Vol. 5. A mellower Mortal aspect project known as Pura can be on Intense. In 2002, Mortal came back to the picture after going for a season off. The cool grooves of Nu-En-Jin made an appearance in fall 2002.
