In 1986, they released their second full-length album "Burning Ambition". The first two albums of this band are a very representative example of the eighties British hard rock. Some NWOBHM enthusiasts may describe their sound as a cross between Diamond Head and Motörhead with a more upbeat ambience. Their fan based extended from the UK and Europe right up to Japan.
For a short time they played alongside the European tour of classic heavy metal act, Manowar. Chariot disbanded in 1992. Some of its members continued playing in a newer band called Dirty Deeds with a more hard-rock sound. Dirty Deeds was lead by Pete Franklin. The band reformed in 2004 and it was quite a busy year of Chariot releases! The same year they released two compilations -- "Early Days, Late Nights" and "What Goes Around", a DVD release of their 1986 live recording "Sweating Blood - Live At The Marquee" and additionally a demo Promo CD.
In 2006, they came back with all new material with their full-length album "Behind the Wire". The last album strongly resonates their NWOBHM eighties days.

Their music is often depicted as being influenced by the band Cream.
All band members - except the drummer Pug Barker - apparently disappeared without a trace. Hard rocking US power trio spun off from '66-'68 Los Angeles Knack. Dates of release are usually given as 1968, but it is believed to have been as late as 1971 Straight forward, hard rock with soulful raspy vocals, tight playing, tight songs Hard rocking, not really psychy. A mainstream play at a radio friendly Grand Funk/ James Gang sound Guitar playing is tasteful, and in service to the song, therefore, no long crazed solos Overall, a solid and enjoyable late 60's/early 70's hard rock album.
