The sarissa (σάρισα) was a spear used in the ancient Greek and Hellenistic warfare. It was introduced by Philip II of Macedon.

Jimmy Selalmazidis was the only constant member. He originally played bass, then switched to guitar, and then back to bass.

At the time of Jim's passing, they had been working on an album, having finished seven of the ten planned songs.
