Dion & The Belmonts had come to the fore earlier in the year with I Wonder Why, a Top 30 hit which defined the white doo wop sound and led the way for many more similar (though not as distinctive) groups such as The Elegants, The Chimes, The Passions and The Mystics.
The Regents, meanwhile, had broken up only to reform in 1961 (without Maresca) after their three year-old demo of Barbara Ann became a surprise hit.
Originally a three-piece formed in Saffle, Sweden in the spring of 1994, Draconian -- at that time -- went by the name Kerberos, and was a metal band that fused touches of death metal, melodic metal, and a little bit of black metal to round out its sound.
At the end of that first year, the band took on vocalist Anders Jacobsson, and with the new setup, changed its name to Draconian.
The band's first demo, Shades of a Lost Moon, was released in 1996, and was the result of the group's initial round of songwriting and arranging.
A second demo was scrapped in 1997, a fate that also befell their first attempts at creating a debut album, and Draconian continued to hash out their sound on a series of demos.
