Simultaneously or afterwards band members played in the bands Deathreat, Severed Head of State, Call The Police, Dimlaia, Warcry, Union of Uranus and more. Todd Burdette, Paul Burdette, and Yannick Lorrain, went on to form the hardcore punk band Tragedy. His Hero is Gone was characterized by heavily distorted "thick sounding" guitars and lyrics featuring social commentary, including anti-consumerism. The band and related projects have remained under the radar of a mainstream audience by not promoting themselves via tools of mass communication such as websites or larger music labels.
