The German Power Metal Band STEEL ENGRAVED was founded in 2006 by Andy Straehler, Marco Schober, Chris Wende, Thorsten Zirpner and Anton Weber. In December 2009 Daniel Kieslinger joined Steel Engraved and replaced Anton Weber on the drums, Thomas Lang replaced Thorsten Zirpner on bass at the end of 2011. 2013 Katharina Praml took the bass. The same year Max Lindner (keyboards) joined the band.
The first Demo CD was realeased in 2007 and is called FUEL FOR LIFE and gained many good reviews. The first longplayer “STATE OF SIEGE” came out in August 2010 at STONE STALLION RECORDS and was a pretty classical tribute to the Heavy Metal of the 80’s.
Since then the band´s sound developed continiously to modern Power Metal with some symphonic influences but never lost its classical roots.
In 2012 Steel Engraved released their new Album called “ON HIGH WINGS WE FLY” by SAOL records (CMM Marketing) which is a straight piece of true German Power Metal. It was produced by VICIOUS RUMOR´s Mastermind GEOFF THORPE during January and February 2012. It got great references nearly worldwide.
After recording the Album "Steel Engraved", which was released on Jan. 25th, 2019 through ROAR - Rock of Angels Records, Daniel Kieslinger as well as Katharina Praml decided to leave the band and were replaced by Daniel Steckel (Bass) and Jaroslav Rod (Drums).
Steel Engraved shared the stage with many known Bands such as Accept, Queensryche, Edguy and many more.
Steel Engraved has been on several Tours throughout whole Europe with Vicious Rumors, Circle II Circle (European Tour 2010), W.A.S.P. (German Tour 2011) and Iced Earth (European Tour 2012).
STEEL ENGRAVED played several nameful festivals: 70000tons of Metal 2013, MetalDays 2013, Out and Loud 2014, BasinFireFest 2014, Metal Invasion 2010, 2012, 2013 (OpenAir)
STEEL ENGRAVED gathered greatest live references! (RockHard, MetalHammer, The Lagacy etc.)
We get the spirit alive again!
After six years of touring, songwriting, doing nothing (vacation – this is a MUST as well 🙂 ), recording, rehearsing, reorganizing etc., we felt that a self-titled album would be a good fit for a fresh new beginning.
With a guest performance of Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) on “Searching for Regret”, Let STEEL ENGRAVED take you on a majestic, melodic, modern, but still old-school ride!
