STEELHEART TO PLAY AT SWEDEN ROCK 2011

March 9th, 2011
by EvilG

Do you recall the wonder singer who dubbed Mark Wahlberg’s vocal parts in the movie “Rock Star” (2001)? Thats right – Miljenko Matijevic, the Croatian-American main man of Steelheart from Connecticut. The band was acclaimed as one of the finest in early 90s’ hair metal. The two first albums “Steelheart” (1990) and “Tangled in Reins” (1992) overflow with classics like “Angel Eyes”, “Steelheart” and the killer ballad “She’s Gone”. Steelheart dissolved in 1992 after Miljenko getting severely injured on stage by a falling lighting rig. An attempted comeback in 1996 proved abortive, but ten years later Miljenko revived Steelheart for real and released the Led Zeppelin-influenced “Good 2B Alive” in 2008. Now the band makes their Swedish debut – beware of glass-shattering high notes when Miljenko opens his mouth!
