This Swiss quintet was formed in 1984 by Dave Barreto (vocals), Angi Schilero (guitar), Fabian Emmenger (keyboards), Urs Hufschmid (bass) and Laurie Chiundinelli (drums). Taking their name from Deep Purple’s 1974 album, they specialized in melodic power metal, evidently based on the works of the latter group. However, it proved to be a rather nondescript tribute, and attracted few supporters. Disillusioned by the lack of media and public response, they split up soon after the album was released. Schilero went on to play with China for a short time, before starting his own band.
