About Steel Tormentor

Steel Tormentor are an old school metal band based in the wilds of north Mayo on the West coast of Ireland. Steel Tormentor was formed in 1996 by guitarist & vocalist James Kelly.

It wasn't till early 2004 James found a line up stable enough to record the debut album "Unleashed". He was joined for the recording process on drums by Seanie Walsh & bass guitar by Paul Newell. The album was recorded engineered & produced by James in his home studio.

The album got such a great response when it was released a giging line up was put together to help promote it.In came original member John Hanly on bass Norman Rafter on guitar & Paul Donnellan on drums. With this line up the band toured the Uk with Marshall Law, made their first appearance at the bloodstock metal festival UK , Up the hammers festival in Greece & along the way supported Saxon.

Kevin Ryder replaced Paul Donnellan on drums in March 2008 & in July 2008 John Hanly left the band. As of 2008 the remaining band members are currently looking for a new bassist & hope to start recording the new album asap.
