M.A.R.S. was a short lived Shrapnel Records attempt at a super-group back in the 80's. Their material was considered to be too heavy and progressive by most major labels at the time, and seeing who's in it you kind of know what to expect (musically speaking) from them. Their only album was released in 1986, after the group had been disolved by Rudy and Tommy, who went on to join Whitesnake, and Tony had decided he wanted to go back to instrumental music and continue his solo career.
