Producer Spencer Proffer, however, insisted on all new material for the band's major label debut, and the demos were scrapped, never to be released. Combining their ideas and talents, they recorded King Kobra III for Appice's own Rocker Records label. Songs like "Perfect Crime," "Mean Street Machine," " "Red Line" and "Walls Of Silence" exhibited a new maturity and growth in the band's sound. But it was not to last.
