History

Taken from their Last.FM Page:

Steelheart is a band fronted by Miljenko Matijevic. Mili’s powerful voice and multi-octave range has become the heart and soul of the band. Although they began as a glam band in the early 90s, Mili has recently reformed the band and turned it away from the glam scene. His new album Samurai is to be released in late 2007. Demos from their new album has been described as a “modern day zeppelin” and is said to be well worth the wait after Mili’s accident and the tragic deaths of his loved ones.

Band Bio

Steelheart released their self-titled debut album in 1990. It sold 33,000 albums on its first day in Japan alone, and quickly hit platinum status. The ballad “She’s Gone” which showcased Matijevic’s incredible vocal range hit #1 on the International Charts, staying there for 17 weeks. The second single “I’ll Never Let You Go (Angel Eyes)” reached #14 on the billboard charts, and was MTV’s 2nd most requested video. The album reached #40 on the billboard charts, making it (albeit just so) officially a ‘hit’. “Everybody Loves Eileen” and its accompanying video also garnered much success. The song “Can’t Stop Me Lovin’ You” further showcased Matijevic’s vocal range, but this time, lead guitarist Risola’s guitar skills were also noticed. The accompanying video was another of the band’s hits.

Steelheart’s next effort, “Tangled In Reins” was a much more mixed combination than the debut, with sleaze glam songs like “Sticky Side Up” to smooth ballads such as “Mama Don’t You Cry”. Also, the song, “Steelheart”, featured Matijevic hitting his highest note of the three albums.
