Rising Steel is a band from Grenoble (Fr) whose reputation among the French heavy metal landscape has been growing since 2012.
Largely influenced by the 80’s NWOBHM scene, the band delivers a solid and powerful metal music, legacy of the great Priest’s and Maiden’s spirits.
Heavy metal is the Law !
Their first 4-track EP “Warlord” (2014) and led them to share the stage with internationaly renowned bands such as Sister Sin, Crucified Barbara and even to open for ADX at the Rising Fest (Dijon, France). This self-produced EP received good critics and reviews on national and international medias and so did the video clip of the eponymous song “Warlord”.
Building upon this first success, 2015 was a year spent working on new material. So on the early 2016 they hit the Control studio to record a 10-track album with Antonin Chardonnereau, the same engineer who recorded the EP.
For the vocal parts, the band decided to work with legendary Norwegian producer Terje Refsnes (Carpathian Forest, Nightmare, Sirenia..) at the Soundsuite Studio in Marseille (France).
The mastering has been carried out by Audiosiege (Portland ,USA) with Brad Boatright (Corrosion Of Conformity, Black Tusk …), who specializes in extreme music and metal mastering.
This explosive blend gives this upcoming record a crushing sound and reveals the sharpness of the band’s new songs, which will no doubt conquer a large audience.
