Almost four years since their sophomore album "Zone of Alienation" was released, Swedish metal band Steelwing are ready to return to the scene. Though still rooted in the traditional heavy metal their fans have come to expect, their coming new release has more than a few surprises in store. "With two well-received albums behind us we could have gone the easy way and kept doing the same thing.” says vocalist Riley. "However, after the hit-oriented Zone of Alienation we felt that we wanted to challenge ourselves to create something darker and much more ambitious. So instead we worked really hard for more than three years to redefine our sound and really perfect the new material. We have introduced a wide range of influences to the sound, anything from death metal and technical thrash to punk and hardcore, where previously we wouldn't allow ourselves to stray too far from the classic heavy metal matrix." The album, aptly titled "Reset, Reboot, Redeem" is due for release on November 20th. It was recorded, mixed and co-produced by Swedish death metal legend Fred Estby (Necronaut, The Dagger, ex-Dismember) at Gutterview Recorders, with additional parts recorded by Nicko DiMarino in Deep Blue Studios where the band's early sound was once formed. Conceptually Steelwing continue to develop on the post-apocalyptic themes of the previous two albums. Where “Lord of the Wasteland” focused on Mad Max-esque highway marauders and “Zone of Alienation” described mutant-infested havens in outer space, “Reset, Reboot, Redeem” take on a more serious misanthropic note: the current flawed state of mankind must be sacrificed to pave way for a trans-humanistic new breed - or all life on Earth will face extinction. One of many firsts for this album is a song in the band’s native tongue: “Och världen gav vika” (translation: “And the World Collapsed”).

Out of the union of five zealous headbangers, the postapocalyptic metal outfit Steelwing was established in 2009
and quickly joined the vanguard of the rising Swedish traditional heavy metal scene. Within months of releasing the first demo, a management and record deal had already been secured.
The following years Steelwing honed their skills in a trial by fire on a crusade across Europe. Touring in support of giants such as Accept, Blind Guardian and Sabaton, the young Swedes conquered new grounds with their energetic live shows and punk attitude. From massive arenas to small club stages, Steelwing would soon come to prove themselves a worthy headliner name in their own right during the following tours of Europe and South America.
The vocal acrobatics, synchronized twin-guitar blitzkrieg and
fierce rhythm section proved to be a winning combination in the studio as well: from the critically acclaimed debut album “Lord of the Wasteland” (2010) to the hit-packed sophomore release “Zone of Alienation” (2012) and the highly anticipated reinvention due for release in 2015, dystopian visions and
uncompromised quality have always been reliable constants in the Steelwing doctrine.
