Sacred Steel  


Sacred Steel was one of two bands that emerged as a result of the breakup of Tragedy Divine, with vocalist Gerrit Mutz and guitarist Jörg Knittel pursuing a more traditional metal direction as opposed to the more progressive stylings of the other post-TD band, Spiral Tower. Their style derives strongly from mid-eighties speed metal, crossing prime Helloween with Mutz's whiny, John Cyriis (Agent Steel) vocal style. Lyrically, Manowar-style metal anthems seem to be the focus, judging by titles such as "Sacred Steel", "Sword Of The King", "True Force Of Iron Glory", etc. Typical of German speed/power bands, the name of the game here is not originality (one might think that eventually they'd stretch their own musical boundaries a bit), but they have never wavered from their true metal stance, and that continues to serve them well.
