Our Band exists since 1988.After we ve relaesed our Cd Book of covetous souls in 1991 we had some troubles with management so we made a Break for 20 Years.But Max and me has played just for fun all the time.I have also played in other Bands so I had contact with our second Guitarist Jo Brunner all the time.2014 We ve rerelaeased our Cd with some Bonus Traks again.Since this time we exists again as band to play gigs.Our bandname has no special meaning .The impulse was the song"Ravenous Medicine" from VOIVOD
