A vicious yet highly melodic Los Angeles Hard Rock outfit, named after a type of torpedo, formed by ex-ACCEPT and SACRED CHILD vocalist David Reece with Ian Mayo and Jackie Ramos, both former members of the Atlantic Records signed HERICANE ALICE. JAG PANZER guitarist JOEY TAFOLLA was seemingly involved at an early stage of the group but was well out of the picture by the time they were in a position to begin recording. Ex-RAZOR MAID men John Kirk and Curt Mitchell took his place.

The 1992 album, 'On Target' produced by Max Norman, offered a mixture of songs drafted in from outside writers, ranging from AUTOGRAPH's Steve Plunkett ('Angel In Black') to JON BON JOVI and ALDO NOVA ('Do The Dance'). Recording line-up comprised Reece, guitarists Curt Mitchell and John Kirk, bassist Dan Greenburg and former KIL D'KOR and BRUNETTE drummer Darek Thomas Cava. The latter went on to PAIN SOCIETY.

Upon the band's demise Reece formed SIRCLE OF SILENCE with ex-members of UNRULY CHILD, whilst Mayo and Ramos teamed up with ex-LION guitarist DOUG ALDRICH in BAD MOON RISING to enthusiastic response in Japan. Mayo would later continue the pairing with Aldrich in a fresh venture BURNING RAIN. Reece would later unsuccessfully audition for JUDAS PRIEST.

In 2002 Jackie Ramos featured on the SINBOY album ''Experiment #13: The Path Which Should Be Taken'.

David Reece returned to action in 2007, joining Swedish band GYPSY ROSE for their June 2008 album 'Another World'. In early 2009 the singer was touting a solo project band simply entitled REECE featuring seasoned German musicians guitarist Andy Susemihl of U.D.O. and featured Jochen Funders from HOLY MOSES on bass, and Stefan Schwarzmann, of ACCEPT, HELLOWEEN, KROKUS, RUNNING WILD and U.D.O., on drums..
