One of the most underrated acts of their time, the Swiss thrash trio Coroner were originally members of Celtic Frost's road crew. They eventually formed their own group, recording their demo "Death Cult" in 1986 with Tom G. Warrior of Celtic Frost on vocals. Their first full length album "R.I.P", released in 1987, featured bass player Ron Royce on vocals and he assumed the role for the rest of the group's existence. The group released several albums through 1993, ending with a greatest hits collection, "Coroner", in 1995. Lack of media exposure brought this band to disbanding in 1994 - and eventually to their farewell tour consequent to their self titled album. As of March 2005, rumours of a reunion in the works are hitting the heavy metal newspages persistently.
