Seraph was a Christian rock band from the early 90's based in Memphis, Tennessee. The band was first formed around 1989, and played several shows around the Midsouth area. They were the opening act for several big name Christian rock bands of the era, like Guardian and Mortal. In 1994, they were signed to Big Toe Records. They released a split EP with labelmates Urgent Cry; each band contributing 4 songs each.
Seraph split up during the early half of 1995. A year later, the lead singer, John Cooper, went on to form the Grammy nominated band Skillet with Ken Steorts (guitarist for Urgent Cry).
