From left to right: Danté, Cronos and Rage.
Originally began as a 5-piece called Guillotine with Clive Archer on vocals, Alan Winston on bass and Cronos on rhythm guitar. Archer and Mantas met at a Judas Priest concert in 1979 which led to Archer and Abaddon (both of the band Oberon) joining Guillotine.
Cronos switched to bass when Alan Winston left the band a week before a gig - his decision to plug his bass guitar into a guitar amp is credited with the development of his trademark "bulldozer bass" sound. The line-up was further trimmed down to a three-piece following the first demo session when the rest of the band decided they prefered Cronos' vocal style to Archer's.
