In 1984-m "Laaz rockit" gained a contract with an independent firm "Target records" and debuted with her album "City`s gonna burn". Made in a style close to power metal, the plate is characterized by low quality and producing in the United States had not much success.
But it was noticed the Germans and later re-released "City`s gonna burn" for the European market. A similar story was repeated with a second disc, "No stranger to danger": lousy sound, low sales in the US and European licensing.

The concert had to be canceled, and the "Laaz rockit" have been looking for a new drummer. To suffer for some time without a drummer, the band still persuaded Victor to return to his seat. In the fall of 1986 the band recorded the album "Know your enemy",which is very close to thrash metal. The contract with the "Target" by that time had already been lost, so the team had to spend some time looking for another " roof ".
