Tytan founder Kevin Riddles started his musical career as the original bass player for Angel Witch, leaving the band in the second half of 1981. The multi-talented Riddles lost no time declaring that he would be keeping the spirit alive with a new venture. He teamed up with vocalist Karl Swan to form Tytan. Musically, Tytan were nothing like Angel Witch, relying on strong melodies, Swan’s remarkable vocal range and the heavy use of keyboards. Kamaflage Records (also responsible for Tank) issued Tytan’s debut 7” single/12” EP »Blind Men And Fools« in 1982 - a soon to be NWOBHM classic.

However, it took another three years for Tytan’s first album »Rough Justice« to hit the shops. It was too little too late.

Originally issued in 1985, »Rough Justice« came out at a time when Tytan was not an active unit anymore. Featuring accessible numbers such as “Cold Bitch”, “Ballad Of Edward Case”, “The Watcher” and stage favourite “Money For Love”, it was a fitting tribute to the band’s hard core of supporters. In his book »The NWOBHM Encycloedia« expert Malc Macmillan was full of praise for the album: “All things considered, it was an extremely strong selection of material, and the overwhelmingly enthusiastic response of the rock community confirmed that the label had been entirely justified in going to all the effort of exhuming the master tapes.”
