It was in the year of 2016 when Martjo “Whirlewolf” Brongers (VORTEX ) and the young head banger
Nima “Metalheart” Saghedi founded STEEL SHOCK based on their shared passion for Heavy Metal in
the 80s tradition! No trends, no compromise, just pure fucking Heavy Metal and all its glorious
clichés. In the spring of 2017 the first demo, ‘First Strike’, was unleashed, soon followed by the full
length album ‘For Metal to Battle’. The album received great reviews from the international press
and the fans. The Shockers have already started working on material for the second album, which
tentatively will be released in the fall/winter of 2018, so you can definitely expect new material on
the Maniacs Festival!
