Welcome to the world of Steel Dawn!

If you look at the history of Steel Dawn, the roots reach back to the year 1992, where the band around Iggo Gunzelman (bass, Voc.) and Ralf Bethke (Guit, Voc.) was founded. Already in the year 1994 the first record-deal came around. As a result of this, the album "Mirror Images", taken under the management of producer Michael Bormann, was released by "Long Island Records". Mirror Images was on place 9 of the japanese import charts - in front of Van Halen!!!

Steel Dawn went on a tour through Germany as support of the U.S. formation "Warrant". But the early, not expected success stopped suddenly. The planned publication and release in Japan and Korea by the "Progressive GmbH" in the year 1996 did not happen, because of the bankruptcy of Long Island Records.

Personal, professional careers and musical differences lead to the split. The band dissolved officially in 1997. But only three years later Ralf Bethke wrote new material. He went on looking for a new line up. After some time the long search finally paid off at the beginning of the year 2002. The new formation with Iggo Gunzelman on the base again, started with the recordings of the basics to the second album "(R)excuse me!". In Autumn 2002 they´ve decided to engage Conny Beck as the new frontman, and so the songs became an update for a harder and more aggressive touch......
