Shaft of Steel (Alex Markham, Rob Fenning, Andy Cooper, Will Keen)

Shaft of Steel are an unashamedly cheesy power prog band based in Scarborough at the University of Hull. You love the steel, you know it's true... Feel free to add us on MySpace - www.myspace.com/shaftofsteel FEEL THE STEEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Inspiration: Dream Theater, Gamma Ray, Helloween, Manowar, Don Henley, Bruce Hornsby, Queensryche, The Lotus Eaters, Meat Loaf, Blind Guardian, soundtrack music. Anything with a melody really...

  • Steel AvengerThis was recorded about a year ago on a crappy 4-track in my garage. It's the original version I did with my band in Kendal, Acrimonious Anguish. Laugh at the vocals, go on I dare you. I will get some Shaft of Steel originals and solo recordings up on here as and when they materialise...
  • The Impending Darkness of the Lonely SausageAnother song from my vast collection of badly recorded metal mastery. Originally the outro song on my "Beat Your Meat for Metal" CD. Even if the music isn't to your taste, the lyrics will give you something to laugh (or cringe) at.
  • Together As One TonightThe ultimate in cheese metal. Submitted this as songwriting coursework and hopefully it will appear in Shaft of Steel's set list next year. Seriously, Gary Barlow could have written this...
