Steeler (German band)

During the Early/Mid Eighties a small heavy metal band by the name of Steeler emerged from the German city of Bochum, the band was around between 1984-1988. The band was originally formed with members Peter Burtz on vocals, Axel Rudi Pell on guitar, Tom Eder also on guitar, Volker Krawczak on bass and Jan Yildiral on drums.

The band released two albums with this lineup, one a self titled album (Steeler) and the other titled 'Rulin' the Earth'.

After the first two albums Krawczak was replaced by Roland Hag, this new lineup released two more albums. The first was named 'Strike Back' and the other 'Undercover Animal'. After this the band split up.

Pell went on to start a successful solo career, under his name, with Krawczak on bass. His solo band is still performing and releasing songs to this day.
