But if this change could easily survive ,then in 1994, the team received a severe blow when the departure of Wagner said. Darryl was much older than his colleagues, and it seemed to him that it is time to engage with the music business. Depressed by the loss of frontman, retired and Karavalla who did not believe that "Pyrexia" can survive without Wagner. However, the rest of the band is not got cold feet and continued to cut demos.
