Nightchild were a traditional Heavy Metal quartet formed in Indianapolis, Indiana in May of 1981.
The name was originally suggested to Randy Joe as a great name for a band by a friend back in 1977.
Being a die hard vampire fan RJ never forgot it and wrote a song called "Nightchild" in 1979.
The band adopted the name from the tune, which was the first original they learned when they got together.
Their sole release was the 1000 copies only "Remember The Faithful" 7", pressed on red vinyl, which was issued by Nightmare Records in 1985.
A planned 11 track album was recorded at the same time as the single, but it went unreleased, subsequently surfacing only as a nine song demo cassette in early 1987.
Sadly, by the time the demo was being traded, Nightchild were no more, having split that March.
Guitarist Randy Joe Duke went on to form the band DIREWOLF in 1992.
