Seduce formed in Detroit in the early 1980s. They built a bit of a following playing clubs in town and released their self-titled debut in 1985. When movie producer Penelope Spheeris made The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years pseudo-documentary, she put Seduce in it, which, due to their part in the movie and ensuing interviews in the press and all, resulted in pre-release orders of their second album of Too Much, Ain’t Enough to be in excess of 25,000 before it was even released.

The album – released by I. R. S. Metal – even though it was not as heavy as their debut, would arguably have a better production and song quality, cementing the trio in the power metal world for the time being, as their songs of “Any Time or Place” and “Watchin’” got plays on heavy metal radio Z-ROCK and they opened for metal guitarist Vinnie Vincent during a tour.

Unfortunately, even though they were planning on making a third album, they broke up for whatever reasons not long afterwards.
