Early in their career, Sniper competed at Yamaha's MidLand '82 band battle. However, they didn't win. They played the songs "Dedicate" and "Kaku Densetsu".

Vocalist Shigehisa "Kinny" Kitao & bassist Romi "Rommy" Murase, who were present on all but one of Sniper's releases, essentially revived the band with the formation of Drive playing a similar style of heavy metal.
