    Hailing from Pasadena, this heavy rock proto-metal group recorded just one demo record in 1972 that wasn't released until 1995 by Rockadelic Records.

    Early members include Jeff Merrell (vocals), Maz Mazza (lead guitar), Eddie Patey (rhythm guitar), Danny Hoger (Bass), Jimmy Wyrowski (bass), John Brinkers (Drums), Eric Spanburg (drums).

    With a heavy run up and down the coast of New Jersey, SSSTEELE opened for such acts as Twisted Sister, White Tiger, and many others, just to name a few. After a few years on the cover scene, Jeff Merrell (vocals), Maz Mazza (lead guitar), and Eddie Patey (bass), decided to go original adding Donny Fierro (rhythm guitar) and Danny Beada (drums). Eddie Patey was later replaced with Joey Springer (bass player from White Tiger).

    For a short run, Eric Ferro (drummer for White Tiger) also joined SSSTEELE on drums. SSSTEELE enjoyed a good run on the Jersey Rock/Metal Scene gigging at L'Amour, China Club, Studio One, Showplace and other well known rock clubs throughout NJ for 10 years.

    Their album was produced by Dae Bennett (Tony Bennett’s Son) and was recorded at Hillside Studios Englewood, NJ.

    This CD is in memory and dedicated to Eric Spanburg who passed away in early 90's.
