A Quick Take on Steelwing

If I were browsing CDs in a store and came across Steelwing’s Lord of the Wasteland it would have been album I bought on cover art alone.

Steelwing: Lord of the Wasteland

I mean it has a robot vulture and a badass muscle car loaded with guns! It is ridiculous. It is awesome. It displays a sense of fun that the metal world doesn’t always show.  If you haven’t guessed this is something of a concept album, though not the sort of epic over-the-top ridiculous other bands will go for, but a wild ride full of foot-stomping, head-banging post-apocalyptic metal.  If it wasn’t obvious this 80s influenced band is part of the “New Wave of Traditional Metal” (NWOTHM) alongside groups like Enforcer, Holy Grail, White Wizzard, and others.  This is the kind of metal designed for summer days driving down the highway with the stereo cranked up to 11.  If you’re looking for fast, furious, epic metal with a large dose of fun Steelwing are the dudes for you!
