Heir Apparent  


Heir Apparent released two fine albums in the 80's, the more power based Graceful Inheritance and the Queensryche-inspired One Small Voice, but just when their popularity seemed to be growing they abruptly disappeared. After an extended absense, guitarist Terry Gorle reformed the band in late 1999, managed to get re-releases of the albums as well as an official release of Triad (a set of 1988 demos previously only available on cassette) and has been working on a new album for some time now. The new lineup has changed frequently over the last couple of years, with the most recent additions shown below.
