Band Information

One of the earliest of Melbourne’s metal entities, Renegade originally came together in 1983 in the wake of the NWOBHM; their sound began to take on elements of the rising thrash metal movement later in their career, particularly after the inclusion of former Depression guitarist Johnny Feedback into the line-up and thus became one of the first Australian bands to experiment with the style. When Feedback left Renegade in 1987 he was replaced by another former Depression member Richard Liddy but shortly afterward the band had their gear stolen from their rehearsal room. Gibson then left for personal reasons and the band folded.

Total Armageddon is being re-issued in 2011.
