The band, based in the East Coast, released the self-titled album Bible Black in 1981. It was followed by Ground Zero in 1983, and then by Burning at the Speed of Light, a collaboration with another group called "Thrasher." None of the albums were particularly successful.

In 1985, McDonald joined Savoy Brown. Driscoll found regular work, which he supplemented with stints as a session musician.
