Season’s greetings. It’s been quite a while since we last posted a blog but we’ve been VERY busy over the last few months. Believe me, all has been far from quiet on the Steel front.
For a start, I moved to London back in August so the Steel is now primarily based in our country’s great capital. I’ve been in talks with loads of past members regarding filling the vacant slots in the band and I’m now pleased to announce that Shaft of Steel has a complete line-up once again.
You’ll have to wait until the New Year to find out who we’ve picked to fill the long vacant drummer, keyboardist and second guitarist slots, but it is definitely worth the anticipation. There’s a very familiar face making a return to the Steel fold and anyone who remembers my work in other bands prior/post-Steel will also see a couple of welcome surprises in the ranks.
In other news, ‘Tyrannosaurus Rex Shafts the Steel of Donkey Kong’ has become ‘Release the Lion Within’. Rob’s vocal work on this track is truly astounding and I can’t wait to unleash it on SoundCloud soon. Without a doubt, it’s the best thing we’ve recorded to date.
Finally, I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who responded to the appeal for band members that I sent out on Facebook a while ago. It’s great to know that so many people remember us and, more importantly, wanted to offer their services to the band this time around.
That’s all for now. Prepare yourselves for Shaft of Steel v2.0. We will be victorious in our quest for ultimate metal glory!
