OUR RATING 90/100
Out last year with amazing album STAY STEEL, Crying Steel are one of the best italian HM band born in Bologna in 1982.
After three demo, one promo and one EP, they released the well known first album "On the Prowl" in 1987.
In September 1988 guitarist Alberto Simonini and singer Alberto Bonzagni left the group, then several line-up changes happened, although in 1994 and 2003 Crying Steel reunited again with the classic line-up.
With this they released "The Steel Is Back", out in 2007, but unfortunately after the release both Simonini and Bonzagni left the band once again.
In 2013 they released "Time Stands Steel", the first with a new line-up, featuring Stefano Palmonari on vocals; in 2014 they played live at the prestigious Wacken Open Air Festival representing Italy, in 2018 it's time for the new album, the abovementioned "Stay Steel" with special guest Tony Mills (T.N.T., Shy) on vocals.
Now JOLLY ROGER RECORDS is ready for this fancy reissue compilation called STEEL ALIVE that contains on CD1 the first two releases "Crying Steel" and "On the Prowl" completely remastered, and on CD2 an unreleased live Concert at the Locomotiv Club in Bologna, recorded in 2016 to celebrate their 30th anniversary and featuring all tracks from "Ep" and "On the Prowl".
