British Steel: The Rising Force of British Metal heralds a new dawn of metal. Acts eager to follow in the size 12's of one-time hopefuls who struck out over the past decades, some of whom went stratospheric, some who didn't but command mega-cult status worldwide. Bands like Iron Maiden, Saxon, Def Leppard, Motorhead, Raven, Girlschool, Tygers Of Pan Tang, Judas Priest and a host of others. Having breathed life back into seminal old favorites from the likes of Raven, Vardis, Onslaught, Samson, Venom, Girlschool, Marshall Law, Blitzkrieg, Cloven Hoof, Jaguar, Xentrix, Amebix, Slammer, Deathwish and more it's now time to unleash the ravenous new breed.

Great Britain, the ostensible home of heavy metal, is spawning quality and varied acts ready to compete with the best of their neighbors. A younger generation, brought up with a broad knowledge of heavy music, have decided that they aren't interested in pushing the boundaries of technique, production and extremity. Instead, these bucks seek only to find their own sound and write songs of the quality they grew up with on the family stereo. This passion for heavy music gives these ‘sons of their fathers' the confidence to make exactly the music they want. Accusations and labels like ‘retro' and ‘old school' roll like water off a metallic aquatic. If you plug away passionately for more or less ten years to tiny crowds with little or no support, it's hard to engage with such negativity. And make no mistake, all of the acts here live and breathe this stuff. 

British Steel: The Rising Force of British Metal is a varied buffet of new artists making waves from the land of NWOBHM. Much like Metal Blade's early development series, British Steel introduces 11 artists that demand your attention including Amulet, Aggressive Perfector, Eliminator, Dungeon, Dark Forest, Toledo Steel, Vuil, Seven Sisters, Insurgency, Neuronspoiler and Wytch Hazel.
