Existance is a Traditional Metal band from France (no joke!), and Steel Alive is the quartet’s sophomore offering. Like many bands, Existance had a rough crawl to gain a recording contract, but they stuck with it and the Metal Community should thank them because Steel Alive is a whale of an album. Strong riffs, catchy rhythms and lyrics, memorable solos, and Julian Izard (vocalist) shows he can hang with his Traditional Metal contemporaries. The band’s declaration is to “keep the musical spirit of the ‘80s Metal alive,” and Steel Alive certainly does. Fans of Priest, Maiden & Saxon take note!

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
