Mordred was founded in 1985 in San Francisco, USA. Initially part of the San Francisco thrash fraternity of the eighties, Mordred starting making a name for themselves by incorporating funk influences to their sound, which back then was quite a novelty. Though most of their debut "Fool's Game" was standard Thrash Metal (with the exception of "Every Day's A Holiday" and a cover of Rick James' "Superfreak"), the follow-up "In This Life" was where band's influences (aided by the rap-style turntables of Aaron Vaughn) really come to the fore, giving the album and band a very distinctive style. By the time of "Visions" (1992), internal friction within the band had developed, leading to the departure of longtime vocalist Scott Holderby. With new vocalist Paul Kimball, the band released "The Next Room" (1994), after which they parted ways. After years of silence, Holderby and most of the core members reunited in late 2001 to play some shows and pursue a renewed career. Following their last show in late March of 2002, the band announced that they would be changing their name and drastically changing their style as well. However, very little has been heard from the band since then.
