Southampton’s Toledo Steel have been conquering stages across the UK and Europe since 2011 with their own style of ’80s influenced high energy heavy metal and have proved themselves to be one of the UK’s leading forces in the New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal.
The band recorded a strong demo in 2012, but it was the release of their self-titled EP in 2013 that, along with countless gigs and festival appearances, pushed Toledo Steel into the spotlight and won over audiences, listeners and reviewers across the world. The band then entered the studio again to record their widely praised second EP “Zero Hour” which has sold nearly 1,000 copies since its independent release in 2015.
With their new track “Rock Nights” appearing on the “British Steel” compilation album, Toledo Steel are continuing to build momentum and are now gearing up to record their highly anticipated debut album which will be released by Dissonance Productions in 2018.
