Julius (acoustic guitar), and Martin Bork (bass), the music group issued their Sound Information debut, the sci-fi idea recording Hypertrace, in 1988. Vocalist Knoblich remaining the group the next 12 months and was changed by ex-Angel Dirt vocalist S.L. Coe, who produced his studio room debut using the group on 1989’s Terminal Globe, another conceptual providing. 1995 saw the discharge from the Balkan War-inspired Mental Booking, this time around via Massacre Information, as well as the band’s 4th studio room outing, 1997’s Ball from the Damned, was also released from the label.
