In 1984, a band from Tennessee emerged that would change the face of music in that area for the next several years. They were called Hard Knox, in reference to the Knoxville vicinity they hailed from, and consisted of Gene Hadley on Lead Vocals, Daniel Lusk on Guitar, Don Murray on Bass and Billy Baker on Drums. Adopting the style and sound that were prominent in Los Angeles at the time, in 1985 they released an album, “Mark Of The Rocker” that would place the band in the hearts and minds of Hard Rock and Glam Metal fans for the next 5 years.
I am eternal, the ruler of the earth and sky
I am infernal, I am on a quest to see the heavens die
My fascination with the dead
Won't be fulfilled here on this killing spree
And when they dream that's when my spirit arise
