Formed in Los Angeles, California, USA, Hyskos drew much of their inspiration from the burgeoning fantasy role playing scene. Dungeons and dragons’ styled mythological themes dotted their debut album, released on their own record label in 1982. Tony Gonzales (guitar), Art Gonzalez (guitar), Barry Benjamin (bass), Clay Guinaldo (drums) and Mark Bradley (vocals) found little favour among local critics. Even in 1982, such medieval sword and sorcery themes seemed passé, and their hoped for leap to a major label never took place.
