The German Melodic 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 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 was released in 2007 and is called "FUEL FOR LIFE". The first longplayer “STATE OF SIEGE” ,released in August 2010 via Stone Stallion Records, 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” via 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 selftiteled Album "STEEL ENGRAVED", released on January 25th 2019 via 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).
