Steelwings (1982-1985, 1985-1992, 2007, 2013-present): a Heavy Metal band from Laholm, Sweden.


wedish act Steelwings play classic old-school hard rock and heavy metal mix with roots from the 80's. They were formed in 1982 and were part of the FWOSHM (First Wave Of Swedish Heavy Metal) being very active throughout the 80s and at the beginning of the 90s playing a lot of gigs during this time and much of their material was recorded and released as four consecutive demos in different forms. This was the time before the Internet, so the music was spread by tape-trading. In 1983 the band went to England and recorded two songs for 'Ebony Records' as well as the song Live Your Life. They also appeared on the charity record Swedish Metal Aid, together with other Swedish heavy rock bands such as Europe, Treat and Heavy Load. In 1989, the band's last album before their hiatus, Steelwings, was released both as LP and CD on the 'Air Music Scandinavia' label. Indeed, this was not the band's first 'hiatus' for somewhere around 1985 they changed their name from Steel Wings to the concatenated Steelwings to re-emerge again around 1988 with a single before finally releasing the aforementioned full album.

A reformation of sorts would come about somewhere around 1991-ish but only last until 1992 and then again briefly in 2007 until a final fixed reformation in 2013. These reformations would see several members come and go, including Krister Andersen (bass), Bengt Carlsson (bass), Dennis NybrattM (drums), Krister Larsson (R.I.P.; drums), Åke Carlsson (drums) and Jan "Janne" Björk (drums).

In 2007, the local city of Markaryd celebrated it's 700th year and the band was asked to play some songs at this event. The guys got together again and this was the beginning of a new era for the band. In time, new songs were written and the group started playing regular live shows resulting in the aptly title Back (2019) on the 'Pure Steel' label under the membership of Michael Lindman (guitars), Gert-Inge Gustafsson (guitars), Tommy Söderström (vocals), Peter Fredriksson (bass) and Marcus Fritiofsson (drums). Still Rising would follow in 2022.
