BLACKKOUT was formed in 1984, initially consisting of Richard W. Elliott IV (vocals, guitars), Gale P. Morse (guitars), Triad (bass) and Jeff Patton (drums). This initial version of the band scored a 7 vinyl single Fallout in 1985

Several line-up alterations later, the band hit the studio again in 1988, now as a trio consisting of Richard Elliott IV, Jeffery Klaus and Triad, to record their only full length effort. The final result was released as the limited edition cassette "Ignorance of Man" in 1989. Greek label Arkeyn Steel reissued this production on CD in 2010, with the tracks from their 1985 single added as bonus tracks.

The final version of the band saw the light in 1990, this time with Richard Elliott IV (Vocals, guitar, flute, bagpipes), Jerry Outlaw (vocals, guitars), Darren McFarland (bass) and Lee Gibson (drums) as the members. In this guise they won a local metal band competition, and also started to record new material. But the band folded prior to finishing any more material, the main members continuing on with a new band project called The Last Things.
