Formerly referred to as Satan, this Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England band became Pariah in 1988, feeling that their original name may have resulted in misconceptions concerning their style. These were never a genuine black-metal clothing, as their primary moniker recommended, but were rather area of the New Influx Of British ROCK picture. Pariah comprised Michael Jackson (vocals), Steve Ramsey (b. 8 July 1964, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Britain; electric guitar), Russ Tippins (electric guitar), Graeme British (b. 4 November 1963, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Britain; bass) and Sean Taylor (drums). Their initial record was The Kindred in 1988, an record of hard, fast steel, seen as a the dual electric guitar onslaught of Ramsey and Tippins. Pursuing Blaze Of Obscurity, Jackson give up and was changed by Tag Allen, but there is no more significant progress within their profession. Ramsey and British went on to become listed on Martin Walkyier in Skyclad. Along with Demon, Pariah appeared doomed to move into history among the most talented steel serves of their era to become dropped to obscurity, conserve for mentions in guide books. It had been a pleasant shock when Ramsey, British and Tippins reunited in 1997, with brand-new associates Alan Hunter (vocals) and Ian McCormack (drums), to record the studio room album Unity.
