Shaft of Steel are a 1980s-influenced UK heavy rock band who blend melodic metal and synthwave to create a new genre – metalwave.
Their debut EP was released independently in 2014 and it led to a string of festivals and support slots with major artists in the AOR genre. Their first full-length album was released by German label AOR Heaven in 2020 to wide acclaim in heavy rock magazines worldwide.
They have since released a popular cover of Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn” and a state-of-the-art music video for their first release of 2023, “Back to Me”.
