Steel Attack  


Formed in 1995, Steel Attack has now survived more a decade in the business, recently releasing their fifth album. In their early days their style was squarely in the Helloween /HammerFall camp of classic Germanic power metal (upbeat singalong choruses, swords 'n sorcery lyrics, driving double-bass drumming), no suprise given song titles such as "Defender Of The Crown", "Heavy Metal God", etc., as well as their signing to AFM Records, a label specializing in just that style of music (and, admittedly, Steel Attack would appear to be a perfect name for such a band). Over the course of several albums and lineup changes, though, their style has shifted, as on their 2006 Diabolic Symphony release they are now much more a traditional Euro metal band and not a stereotypical power metal band, a welcome progression indeed.
