Product Description

Crying Steel were born in Bologna in 1982. To the founders Alberto Simonini (guitar) and Angelo Franchini (bass) soon joined Luca Bonzagni (voice) and then in 1983, after several changes of line-up, Luca Ferri (drums) and Franco Nipoti (guitar). After their first demo-tape they are noticed by the well-known journalist Beppe Riva of Rockerilla magazine who included them in the compilation “HM Eruption, The Italian Way of Heavy Metal” with the track “Thundergods”. After a new demo in 1984 it’s time for the EP “Crying Steel”, published once again by Metal Eye label in 1985. In the following two years Crying Steel intensified the live activity playing all over Italy, to mention the performance at the Heavy Metal Festival in Bologna in June 1986 with Motorhead and Twisted Sister. After two demos in 1985 and 1986 they released the first album “On the Prowl” in 1987. Revolutionary album for the New Wave of Italian Heavy Metal (NWOIHM) not only for the musical style but also for the sound, recording process and format, infact is published not only on Lp, but also on CD, absolute innovation for the time. In September 1988 Simonini and Bonzagni left the group, then several line-up changes happened, although in 1994 and 2003 Crying Steel reunited again with the classic line-up Simonini / Nipoti / Bonzagni / Franchini / Ferri, the same of the two previous releases. With this, in 2006 they began the recording-sessions of the new album “The Steel Is Back”, released in 2007, but unfortunately just 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 “Stay Steel” with special guest Tony Mills (T.N.T, Shy) on vocals.
