Band information

One of the leaders of Sydney's metal scene in the late 1980s, Enticer played a mixture of speed, thrash and traditional-style metal. The group formed in 1987 around Steve Moore, Dave DeFrancesco and ex-Fallen Saint Michael Keating. After a couple of unsuccessful guitarist pairings, John Kyd was found and the band was joined by vocalist Gregg Moore. With a mixture of classic metal covers and trad-style originals, Enticer played around Sydney for a couple of years before going in to record "Into Reality" in early 1989 that displayed a more aggressive, thrash-oriented sound. Soon after, Gregg Moore was replaced by Steve Sidhu and the band moonlighted for some months as an Angels cover band called Night Attack.

Kyd left during this time and when Enticer reconvened, it was with Rhett McCoullough. The single "Reaper of the Earth" was recorded and shortly afterward Moore left and DeFrancesco was fired. In mid-1991, Enticer featured at Metalfest 91, a mini-festival event that was headlined by Sadistik Exekution. Two months later while recording for an album, Enticer decider to disband.

DeFrancesco went on to join Mortal Sin for a brief time and Steve Moore later replaced Matt Coffey in Addictive before going on to play in Dungeon and Vaticide.

During 2011, Keating and McCoullough recorded two new Enticer tracks with vocalist Mark Briggs and Syd Green of Mantissa on drums.
