Persian Risk  


Persian Risk attracted a fair following in the early eighties, and seemed primed to be a NWOBHM force, but fame eluded them. Their early lineups featured two notables who went on to greener pastures, one being founding guitarist Phil Campbell (who left for Motorhead in 1984) and the other being Tygers Of Pan Tang vocalist Jon Deverill, who departed in 1981. Varying lineups released at least one single and 12" in the early eighties, but by the time their debut album Rise Up was put out in 1986, the band had already collapsed. Rise Up is a passable NWOBHM/hard rock album, decently played for the style but ultimately not terribly memorable.

Apparently vocalist Carl Sentance put together a completely new version of the band in 2012, as a new album Once A King surfaced in that year.
