Profile Mach 1 hailed from Los Angeles, California formed in 1987 by brothers Marzbetuny and former Divine Rite drummer Donny Sarian. In 1989 they released their debut 6-tracks EP independently and they became highly successful on the L.A. Club circuit with sold out shows at the Whiskey, Roxy and Troubador being par for the course. Their sound was reminiscent of Classic Hard Rock/Metal bands like Queesryche, Judas Priest and even UFO.

The song aptly entitled “Our Forgotten Cry” tells the chilling story of the suffering that the Armenian’s faced under Turkish rule. Other highlights on the CD are “Pain of desire” with it’s heavy backbeat and nightmarish lyrics of a love lost, and “Turn Around” which is a sad tale of living life under the control fears & phobias. A must have for all who enjoy well structured classic Hard Rock/metal with a strong message and brilliant musicianship. They were active till 1992 when they split-up.
