< >



First re-release of the third full-length studio album by legendary German Heavy Metal band.
With Doro at the helm, Warlock put forth an interesting variation on the Sleaze/Glam Metal sound with a fair share of Judas Priest and Accept influences to boot. They started more concentrated upon the riff-oriented style the previous mentioned bands exhibited and didn’t spend too much time trying to write epic sounding ballads or lighter edged rock songs. On this release band began evolving their sound slightly away from that style and towards something a bit more mainstream. “True as Steel” is sort of a mixture of older guard aggressive Heavy Metal and the Glam style that was really growing in prominence at this point in the 80s. You can hear bits and pieces of Dokken, Quiet Riot, and even a little bit of early Riot (pre-Thundersteel). There is a larger emphasis on sing along choruses, much as is the case on the next release “Triumph and Agony”. It still, however, holds onto a good deal of the Speed Metal elements that were heard on “Burning the Witches” and the very heavy “Hellbound”. The resulting mix of styles is a very interesting listen.
This album has their first success outside of Europe, the single "Fight for Rock" charted on Billboard, and the music video for this song was aired on MTV's Headbangers Ball.
