Home / Biography / Steeler


Although some metalheads most likely assume that Swedish guitar shredder Yngwie J. Malmsteen’s initial U.S.-structured band was Alcatrazz, he was a short person in another obscure Los Angeles-based metallic band called Steeler. The group also included upcoming Keel frontman Ron Keel (bassist Rik Fox and drummer Tag Edwards also curved out the music group), because the quartet’s music was like the pop/party steel which was ruling the Sunset Remove at that time. The music group was among the first to become authorized to Mike Varney’s Shrapnel label (one which offers since become associated with highly specialized guitar shredders), producing a lone self-titled launch from 1983 before their separation shortly thereafter. Even though album didn’t make much sound upon launch, it became a interested cult item for followers after Malmsteen and Keel would ultimately continue to larger and better points.
