Baron Steele was formed in Austin, Texas in 1985 and entered the thriving Central Texas heavy metal scene which included such notable contemporaries as WatchTower, Militia, SA Slayer, & Wyzard. The band wrote epic, well crafted tunes influenced by European greats Witchfynde and Mercyful Fate, as well as lesser known U.S. metal acts like Griffin and Warlord.
A two song demo was recorded in 1987 but received very little circulation due to the band’s dissatisfaction with the final studio mix. In light of this fact, the demo has become somewhat of a ‘cult classic’ known only to true diehard underground metal fanatics.
TMU RECORDS has resurrected this lost tape, finally giving these classic songs a proper release.
