Steelheart is the brainchild of Miljenko Matijevic, whose powerful voice and multi-octave range is the heart and soul of the band. They will release their new album “Through Worlds Of Stardust” on September 15th via Frontiers Music Srl.
Recently, Steelheart completed work on a video for their song “You Got Me Twisted”. Today, they have teamed up with Ultimate Classic Rock for an exclusive premiere of the video. Watch it HERE
Of the video, Miljenko Matijevic told Ultimate Classic Rock:
“This video was so much fun to make! It is funny, sexy, and rock ‘n roll, as it should be. The scenes in the mansion were filmed at a famous old house which was the home of English film director James Whale during the making of his four classic films: Frankenstein (1931), The Old Dark House (1932), The Invisible Man (1933), and Bride of Frankenstein (1935). The performance scenes were filmed in downtown Los Angeles. My film team and the beautiful actress and model, Shonda Mackey did an amazing job on the video! I am truly excited for the world to see it and I hope you all like the video as much as we had fun making it!”
The first track to be released from the album, “Got Me Runnin” can be heard HERE.

Although they were lumped in with the glut of long-haired hard rock bands emerging in the early ’90s, the band was always more forward thinking than their peers and the 2017 version of the band has a contemporary and edgy feel, while still retaining the patented powerful vocals of Miljenko. On “Through Worlds Of Stardust”, Miljenko has fused his past, present, and future together, creating an undeniable piece of hard rock music. Certainly fans of the band’s first three classic albums will be happy to hear those powerful pipes back in action, but fans of modern hard rock acts like Halestorm, Shinedown, Alter Bridge, and other melodic minded rock heavyweights will find much here to love.
Steelheart released their self-titled debut album in 1990 and based on the buzz around the hit single “I’ll Never Let You Go” was a smashing success (for example, 33,000 albums were sold in one day in Japan) and quickly reached platinum sales. Steelheart’s sophomore album, “Tangled In Reins”was released in 1992 to critical acclaim and rave reviews, but moderate success in terms of sales in the U.S. (by early ’90s standards) due to the well documented rise of grunge music; however, East Asia was a different story, where the band was widely embraced yet again. In the midst of promotion of the album, a serious accident happened on Halloween night in 1992, when an improperly secured lighting truss hit Matijevic on the back of the head, breaking his nose, cheekbone, jaw, and twisting his spine. Almost impossibly, Matijevic managed to walk off the stage of his own strength before being rushed to a hospital. “Steelheart” as it was known ended that night.
Now the band is back with a sonic tour de force befitting of their stature. Don’t be foolish and dismiss this as just another “band from the ’80s” as you will miss out on one of the most surprisingly robust and balanced hard rock albums of 2017! Highly recommended for fans of hard rock from then and NOW!
