Welcome our new drummer

We are happy to announce that Jaroslav (Jarda) Rod joined the Steel Engraved family as new drummer.

Jarda is very well known as drummer in the Czech Republic playing for the Czech Metal band "Blamage". He was eager to take on a second challenge in another band as he is a musician with all heart and soul.

A warm welcome to Jarda!


But what happend to the former drummer(s)?

After our new Album "Steel Engraved" was recorded, our former drummer Daniel Kiesslinger decided to leave the band due to his personal life situation. He had a chance to pursue a new career in his work life and relocated. This did make it difficult for him to give the band the attention needed and therefore he took the decision to leave.

After his departure, Daniel's nephew Marco Wastl filled in for the upcoming live shows that were planned by that time. He did a great job thus far, but also his personal life situation did not allow him to remain in the band as full member. Marco now is focusing on his apprenticeship which is planned to finish in about 2 years.

We wish both of them good luck in their new challenges. As with Katharina (Bass - as announced before), also those 2 separations were in full friendship.

Steel Engraved


We get the spirit alive again!


After six years of touring, songwriting, doing nothing (vacation – this is a MUST as well 🙂 ), recording, rehearsing, reorganizing etc., we felt that a self-titled album would be a good fit for a fresh new beginning.

With a guest performance of Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) on “Searching for Regret”, Let STEEL ENGRAVED take you on a majestic, melodic, modern, but still old-school ride!
