Lethal Steel – Debut Album “Legion Of The Night” Out In January

Lethal Steel Debut Album “Legion Of The Night” Out In January 2016

Lethal Steel is a new band coming from Sweden, who just inked a deal with High Roller Records. In 2012, the band issued their first demo which was limited to only 50 copies, and started to play in smaller venues in their home country. Guitarist Johan Frick explains: “The demo was recorded at Fryshuset during a couple of weeks in May of 2012. We recorded it all by ourselves”.

The title of Lethal Steel’s first album for High Roller Records is “Legion Of The Night”. The album includes eight traditional Heavy Metal anthems, and will be available on January 29, 2016, as CD and vinyl LP. “The album was recorded with the help of Olof Wikstrand from Enforcer. It contains five completely new songs, two old tracks that we never recorded (“Into The Void Of Lucifer” and “Nattsvart”) plus “Nocturnal Seductress”. We are all happy with the results. Some songs are based on folklore. For example “Night Of The Witch” is about a Swedish lore in which witches travel to a mythical place called Blåkulla, where they feast with the devil” explains Johan.

Regarding the band’s influences – of old and new bands alike – Johan states: “It’s hard to say which old bands have been the most important to us, but of course Heavy Load are a huge influence. All the members of Lethal Steel met because of a common interest in old bands like Jonah Quizz, Gotham City and Mindless Sinner. So for us, all of those bands have been essential for Lethal Steel forming in the first place. We are the only Swedish band playing genuine Heavy Metal at the moment though, at least that’s how we see it”.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
