Progressive metallic outfit No Hour was shaped in the SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA Bay area in 1993 by brothers Troy (bass) and Jasun Tipton (guitar), alongside longtime friend Mike Man (drums). The visit a vocalist appeared to be over when Frank Mendez (previously of Rogue’s Gallery) became a member of in 1995, alongside keyboardist Mike Conner (ex-Prodigy — not really the electronica group or the rap musician). Nevertheless, Mendez was eliminated before year’s end, and Conner helped recruit his previous bandmate Erik Rosvold to consider Mendez’s place. Sadly, Conner created carpal tunnel symptoms because the group was getting ready to record its debut record in 1997, and was compelled to keep. His place was used on record with the label group of Matt Guillory and Phil Bennett, both veterans of several a prog program. The music group self-released its self-produced, self-titled mini-album in 1998, and it ultimately landed No Hour a cope with the neo-prog label Laser’s Advantage/Sensory. Their main label debut, The Towers of Avarice, was released in early 2001.
