SACRED STEEL, which was previously signed to such labels as Metal Blade and Massacre, established itself in the '90s as one of the leading true metal bands. Their albums "Wargods Of Metal" or "Bloodlust" are considered by many to be some of the best '90s traditional metal releases.
SACRED STEEL's last album, "Carnage Victory", was released in 2009, and was supported by a number of European live shows, including well-received appearances at such festivals as Bang Your Head!!!, Summer Breeze and Rock Hard.
