Until now, "Rising From The Ashes" has only been available as a self-release on CD through the band. Here, the London quartet featuring original members Jeff Summers (guitar) and Danny Hynes (vocals) also deliver the finest “British Steel” with a strong production. The songs are a mix of classic metal and modern sound with a slight rock ’n’ roll edge.

The band's current line-up of Danny Hynes - vocals, Jeff Summers - guitar, vocals, Tony Forsythe - bass, vocals and Darren Lee - drums has recorded a version of the classic Thin Lizzy song "The Rocker," which is also included on the album as special bonus track.
