Additional information
from - James Rees (30.06.2005):
PREYER were formed September 1984 and hailed from various parts of industrious South Wales.
The line-up at the time consisted of Pete Macintosh - Vocals (ex -Salamander), Phil Scourfield - Bass (ex - Shanghai), and Craig Thomas -Guitars (ex - Salamander). Phil John completed the line-up after leaving his band Nightime Flyer.
PREYER immediately began working on an original set, basing themselves very much on the JUDAS PRIEST, ACCEPT mould and penned such numbers as 'Distant Lights', 'Sentenced to Hell and 'Over The Top'.
In January '85 the band headlined at Swansea University and received local airplay through a Live tape made at the gig, this also provided interest in and around the Swansea area. Later that year the band recorded their first demo entitled 'On The Prowl' at STUDIO 2 in Cardiff and was produced by Mal Skrines.
The demo attracted a bigger following which led them to audition for a fifth band member, namely James Rees formerly of MAMMATH (who had previously released a single on NEAT RECORDS entitled 'Rock Me').
In September '85 PREYER released their second demo 'Fear The Dark' with production again handled by Skrines, this time though with the added guitar pyrotechnics of James Rees. 'Fear The Dark' brought the band further reviews with mentions in KERRANG and many Independent Rock Magazines throughout the country. This was followed by extensive gigging throughout Great Britain and the band went from strength to strength.
In early December '85 PREYER recorded two tracks namely 'Shout It Out and 'Preyer for a B.B.C. T.V. rock magazine called 'JUICE'. The programme was broadcast a week later, and proved highly successful, reaching an estimated audience of over 4 million.
This created interest with BLACK DRAGON RECORDS and IRATE MANAGEMENT amongst others, however it was EBONY RECORDS that eventually signed the boys up.
This led to the recording of PREYER'S' debut album 'TERMINATOR' at EBONY studios in Hemingbrough, North Yorkshire, which was produced by Darryl Johnston.
'TERMINATOR was released in November '86 and to date has sold well in Great Britain and Europe.
In December '86 PREYER recorded another session for 'JUICE' now in it's second series, this time performing only one number 'Leather and Chains' a popular live and album track. More gigs followed and the band to this day grow in strength and provide first class mainline HEAVY METAL and delivering a powerful, dazzling live show.
PREYER'S music has been described as "A sharp kick in the kidneys", "Crunchy Solid fare throughout" and "Embodying Metal at its sharpest".
With the band constantly writing new material and forming an aggressive style, 'PREYER' see 1987 as an important year for their aim to become a major force in the Heavy Metal Stakes.

And Now We're Coming Back... On The Prowl.
