Love Ingwie's playing, need we say more?

From: angelfireast197 Date: January 22, 2002 at 23:47
This is the ULTIMATE YNGWIE playing at 17 years old! Check out his intro solo (you might remember it as the buzzsaw sound to Metalshop). This album F*cking Rocks! Long live the Yng!

From: TIM Date: May 17, 2002 at 18:44
They had a great lineup, but there's only a few tracks worth listening to.

From: Desslar Date: May 18, 2002 at 15:35
Picked this up to hear some kicka$$ Yngwie licks, but there aren't any. Sounds like Keel demos. Dull.

From: b casarin MEX Date: September 26, 2002 at 20:35
steeler kick ass!!! 85/100

From: Blue Tequila Date: September 27, 2002 at 20:53
Has anyone heard the "Other Steeler" with Axel Rudi Pell? I have a CD by them called "Strike Back" that I got from Germany dated 1986. Sounds like it has some influence from Scorpions and Accept. Very good album.

From: Steve Date: October 28, 2002 at 9:51
German Steeler were much better than the American one. Strike Back is a classic album. They had three others though, Rulin' the Earth, Steeler and Undercover Animal. Strike Back is the better album, but UA is pretty good too.

From: ROBERT Date: October 28, 2002 at 10:46
¿DONDE ESTA EL undercover animal? para mi el mejor, con el gran axel rudi pell a las 6 cuerdas..

From: MT Thunder Date: April 15, 2003 at 16:23
Good god this album ROCKSSSS. Ron Keel, Ygnwie Malsteim need I say more. This is a must have CD. Somewhat crude but Awsome. This album is a Heavy Metal Classic. Cold Day in Hell, Back Seat driver,On the Rox's must i go on....Go get this.

From: Yngwie Date: May 9, 2003 at 15:18
This was the first album I used my lefthanded three coloursunburst Strat.Ron was pretty cool at this time I was 19 and fresh in LA. Then I got a good deal with Alcatrazz and that`s it.

From: Zenari Date: May 24, 2003 at 4:51
Steeler REALLY rocks. I dunno why Yngwie don't like it...

From: Edward Date: September 25, 2003 at 10:45
This is really a good album! Yngwie Malmsteen and Ron Keel together, WOW!! what an album! The songs rock! Was Yngwie really that young when this album came out? He's one of the best guitar players. Really, REALLY GOOD!

From: Scandinavia Date: September 25, 2003 at 11:20
Yngwie from Germany??? Hmmm something isn't right here now is it? Anyway, this one's good as a Keel album but Malmsteens style ain't that present at all...Mr. noisemaker is luckily restrained & only gets to fire away on the instrumental parts...Why he always has to be considered a genius is still a mystery to me??? He sure can play & he sure is fast but he repeats himself on every album...That's his style you say, yeah, but a damn boring one!

From: BLAST 4 ME Date: October 3, 2003 at 18:06
This is YNGWIE at his best because this YNGWIE within the basic rock format and burning at will until KEEL pulls back on the reigns. The music is typical at the time it was made, but the guitar makes it an all time classic. Out of all the SHRAPNEL releases at this time, this was one of the only ones to go to CD. YNGWIE RULES !!!!!!!!!!

From: brian Date: October 13, 2003 at 0:02
Both Steelers had something to offer. I really liked "Waiting for a star" great guitar work. Of corse no Yngwie. Lets not forget that trader Ron Keel is a Country singer. Fight for rock Ron, not.

From: Desslar Date: October 18, 2003 at 3:58
Yeah, "Waiting for a Star" is an awesome song. Fantastic solo. Go check out Axel Rudi Pell's Steeler and forget about this one.

From: Scandinavia Date: October 19, 2003 at 7:17
I've recently submitted all albums by ARP's Steeler...They haven't turned up in here yet though...

From: Blue Tequila Date: October 19, 2003 at 12:05
I hope they get added this time Scandinavia. I submitted 2 of the 4 releases last year and they were never put on the site. Couldn't figure out why since their sound is appropriate for HH. "Strike Back" is one of my favorite albums.

From: red Date: February 5, 2004 at 0:32
Yngwie's playing is very good here. The rhythm section is good, but Ron Keel's vocals are terrible!

From: Jimm W Date: May 31, 2004 at 2:39
Saw 'em in San Jose and they were great! This is great stuff. Don't know if anyone noticed but in Men In Black Two there's a little snippet of "Speed Demon" when they go to the post office to bring Agent S back to duty. Pretty funny stuff.

From: Ace Rx Date: September 3, 2004 at 12:55
no doubt....this album is very under rated.....

From: Geoff Date: September 5, 2004 at 2:15
Good solid hard rock. I like this album, even if it is not one of those ones where many tracks really stand out, it is a good consistent hard rock release.

From: Mike h Date: October 26, 2004 at 23:19
Great cd!!! Ron Keel's voice goes so well with yngwie's guitar riffs. The best Yngwie solo ever is on the track HOT ON YOUR HEELS. Yngwie was truly born to rock!!!

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 16:54
Fantastic disc! Yngwie and Keel were perfectly matched on this one. Great riffs (of course), awesome throat. This is essential for you even if you don't care for Yngwie or Ron. You're a fool if you don't, but you know what I mean.

From: Swriter Date: April 25, 2005 at 19:40
man, what memories, among the early 80's metal was Steeler, Rodz, Wild dogs, Saxon, Highway Child, Riot, Exciter, Culprit, and Y & T. This is really a great one!!!!!!!! Probably the best Keel ever sounded, wowowowow, when Cold Day in Hell started and Malmsteen's guitar, this was insane!!!!!! Really a must have for early 80's metal and a must for all Keel and Malmsteen lovers, songs are fantastic!!!

From: Rhodeislandrock Date: January 2, 2006 at 14:15
Just replaced my old vinyl last week. Finally got this on CD & I've been spinning it constantly. A great pairing (Keel/Malmsteen) but I prefer the Bonnet/Malmsteen pair in Alcatrazz. A must for any 80s metal fan, Steeler is classic!

From: Metal T Date: January 23, 2006 at 17:57
Yngwie (post Steeler) playing the same licks alongside repetitive keyboards with an endless revolving door of lame duck singers =A complete and total waste of time.Yngwie,a Strat and a Marshall.......Priceless.

From: Bobby De Date: April 16, 2006 at 20:40
If life could only be this wonderful...If my dreams could be this powerful...If my passion could be this strong I too would be able to Serenade forerver and ever! Thank you for everyone that was involved in this project...Life will never be the same again once you hear this! My heart will forever be yours...I owe you my life!

From: Fat Freddy Date: October 12, 2006 at 10:32
Never heard the German band by the same name and I've never been a huge Yngwie fan, but I always liked Ron Keel's voice, so I took a chance on this oldie but goody. It sounds a little dated nowadays but overall brings back some pleasant memories of the early 80s US metal scene. I get the feeling that this was less of a "band" and more of a "project" assembled by their record label, I assume that Ron & Yngwie did the record, cashed their checks, and went their separate ways soon afterwards.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 24, 2007 at 2:19
Good Hard Rock/Melodic Metal, este disco de buen nivel Hard Rock y Metal Melodico aunque los Alemanes tienen un estilo que personalmente me agrada mas pero ambos se las traen, ya Ron con su otra banda es otra historia 8/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 1, 2007 at 11:48
Ahora Ron Keel esta dedicado al country music!!!.Anyway este es un album solido tanto en composicion y ejecucion de los temas,claro el gran Yngwie estaba presente jejeje!!!.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 16, 2011 at 13:42
Well a band that was comprised of 2 icons of metal nowadays,Ron Keel & Yngwie "who" Malmsteen ...typical early 80's metal stuff..."Cold Day In Hell" superb!,"No Way Out" catchy feel,"Hot On Your Heels" has a great guitar intro courtesy of "who?" that leads to a good rocking track,"On The Rox" & "Born To Rock" are the picks of this album...a good delightful effort...90/100

From: dany69 Date: April 24, 2019 at 18:47
