Cyclone Biography

by Eduardo Rivadavia

An obscure speed metal act from the Belgian town of Vilvoorde, Cyclone (originally known as Centurion) initially parlayed the warm fan reception to their 1985 "In the Grip of Evil" demo into a two-track appearance on Roadrunner's Metal Race compilation, then signed with the fledgling label for the release of their 1986 L.P. Brutal Destruction. The band's lineup of vocalist Guido Gevels, guitarists Stefan Daamen, Pascal Van Lint and Johnny Kerbush and drummer Nicholas Lairin soon splintered, but Cyclone recruited replacements D. Kapelle (guitar), G. Vanoverloop (bass) and G. Langhendries (drums) and hobbled along for a few more years until 1990's much improved (but still somewhat deluded of title) Inferior to None album signaled the end of their brief existence.
