CONQUEST OF STEEL
"OF FIRE AND STEEL"
NO FACE RECORDS

CONQUEST OF STEEL plays total straight up '80's style Heavy Metal music with
some touches of Power Metal mixed within. These guys claim to have been formed in
1980, but they really were formed in 2000. The band hails from England, U.K. and have
that killer New Wave Of British Heavy Metal sound that was coming out in the late '70's
and early '80's. I love
CONQUEST OF STEEL and even did an interview with them a
few years back. I was sad to just read on their website that they were putting the band to
rest after all these years. This really sucks, as "OF FIRE AND STEEL" is the bands best
release to date. They have an amazingly Progressive '80's Heavy Metal sound with Epic
Power Metal mixed in. The guitar work is some of the best guitar work I have heard in an
underground Heavy Metal band in years. I am a child of '80's Metal, so of course these
guys have made an impact on me. The music itself reminds me of
JUDAS PRIEST &
IRON MAIDEN mixed together with SAXON & ANVIL with touches of RAVEN,
ACCEPT
& LORDI. The songs lyrics gave me that feeling of DIO & MANOWAR,
while the vocals really made me think I was listening to Ronnie James Dio again. He is a
hard man to duplicate, but Dan Durrant comes really close. If you are a fan of these above
mentioned bands, then you must get these releases before they are gone. The band is still
selling their merchandise, but with the band being put to rest, who knows how long you
will be able to purchase them. Get them now before they are gone.
CONQUEST OF
STEEL
would have been a huge band if they would have come out in the '80's. I feel they
would have been able to hold their own with
JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN &
MANOWAR
. Long live the STEEL!
