Shaft Of Steel – surely a metal band with a logo like that…and cover art featuring a medieval candelabra and goblet and even a fish mounted on the wall! Let’s get ready to rocwhaaaat? This isn’t bang your head, it’s more rather gently nod your noggin. These British rockers defy the visuals and deliver a classy bright and breezy, pink and fluffy AOR record that’s more akin to Work Of Art than their name suggests.

Its well worth the time and the effort. For a debut, it delivers more than might be expected and while they aren’t yet in the same league as WOA, anything is possible with a start like this. Just fix the visuals and tighten up production a little.
