Let's face it - in nowhere but Britain could a band like Spear of Destiny have surfaced and survived. In that broad grey twilight which spans UK rock's no man's land between all-out pop glamour and the blood and iron hues of Gothdom and Metal, a thousand dark and different ideas found a musical voice during the 20th century's last two decades. When we think of Spear of Destiny we think of imagery. It is encapsulated in the angular, European visage of the band's leader, Kirk Brandon.Their album covers, with their Cyrillic graphics and strong, propaganda art styles, hark back to another time. As the pop world around them shifted and changed between sequins and make-up, strange trousers and rolled-up jacket sleeves, S.O.D. dared to be different with a music, lyrical approach and a look which crow-barred its way into your consciousness with a Spartan strength, courting controversy along the way.
Spear of Destiny have their roots where so much of today's good popular music was germinated - the punk explosion. They began back in 1978, even before the Iron Lady had ascended her regal throne, then known as The Pack, knee deep in the chaotic period of punk anarchy. The line-up then was Kirk Brandon, with guitarists Jon and Simon Werner, from Canada, and Scottish drummer Rath Fae Beith. Their aggressive stand and lyrical approach represented the world they lived in at that time; they were young men, struggling in the squats of South London in a grim period of political history which only promised worse to come
