GNADENSTOß - Das ist Hardrock/Metal Made in Mittelhessen. Die fünfköpfige Formation rund um Sänger Daniel spielt seit Anfang 2013 zusammen und hat sich seither der deutschsprachigen Musik der härteren Gangart verschrieben. Dabei konnte die Band bereits im ersten Jahr nach deren Gründung auf mehreren Szenefestivals wie etwa dem Böhse Ostern Festival, dem Vulkanbeben Festival und der GOND ihr Können unter Beweis stellen.


With their 5 CDs released so far, Morbid Jester has found worldwide resonance and has received positive feedback from Brazil, Japan or Greece, among others.

In October 2016, the current longplayer "Something Wicked" was released under the label "Battle Cry Records".

Morbid Jester’s convincing down-to-earth Power Metal was recommended in their career, among others, as the opening act of the NWOBH icons "Saxon" or the Palatine Metal veterans "Trance".


Old School Or No School

It was in the year of steel 2003 that guitarist Martjo “Whirlewolf” Brongers (from legendary Dutch heavy metal act VORTEX) came face to face with the young headbanger Nima “MetalHeart” Sadeghi on the Belgian battleground of Graspop Metal Meeting. The two immediately discovered their common passion for Heavy Metal and Jack Daniel’s... and discovered that both were resident in the city of Groningen, in the north of the Netherlands.

A friendship was born and grew stronger over the years. The talks of the two making music together was something that kept coming up for a long time, but the right time and opportunity never seemed to come along. In 2016 the time was finally there: the talks were over, it was time to take action, and so STEEL SHOCK was born. The mission: unleashing Heavy Metal in the 80s tradition: no trends, no compromise, just pure fucking Heavy Metal and all its glorious clichés.

Having found the right people with the right attitude to complete the force, the forging of steel tunes began to take shape, a deal with the Greek label Alone Records was quickly a fact, and in the spring of 2017 the first demo, ‘First Strike’, was unleashed. Limited to 250 hand-numbered copies the demo was given away for free at the legendary and prestigious Keep It True festival in Germany.

The demo was a huge success and a few journalists took it upon themselves to write about it. The five warriors left no time for argue and completed their debut album, ‘For Metal To Battle’, which was released in September of 2017, followed by a successful tour with German warriors, Wizard. The album received great reviews from the international press, and the reactions of the fans were overwhelming to say the least.

The Shockers have already started working on material for the second album, which tentatively will be released on 10 February of 2019. Of course plans the live battle continues, as we speak…

Let there be metal, and Shock that Fuckin’ Steel
