great hard rock from the early 70s with some great bonus footage, i have a japan papersleeve edition of this album that came out about 4 or 5 years ago but this edition is better, it has a lot of bonus tracks and comes with a very informative booklet, if you liked sabbath, uriah heep or lucifers friend you will love this band,

Official release by the band. This is a classic progressive rock band (They list it in the booklet as progressive, But I would say more like Prog Hard Rock) from the UK. Recorded in 1971. With 5 bonus tracks recorded in 1970 and one new one from 2010 + their 45 releases. This band is GREAT!!! Some songs with some nice mellow sections and heavy parts that will blow your doors off. Perfect use of a little bit of flute piano or some sax in some songs, Never too overly played. The guitar vocals and bass and drums are all top notch. This CD comes with a nice booklet telling you the whole story of the band. The quality of the recordings are even better than the Japanese CD version I have.
Steel Mills story just goes to show you how record companies can screw up great bands like this getting the attention they deserve.
I've had the German release of this LP since the late 70's. The record has always been of high value to collectors. This type of music never seems to sound outdated. I still enjoy hearing it every now and then.
Also of note is that the bass player went on to join THE RUNNING MAN another classic British band from the 70's
PICK IT UP AND CRANK UP THE VOLUME!!!!

steel mill plays a classic style of hard rock with folk and proto-metal elements. good songwriting, good playing, good sound. should appeal to fans of jethro tull, early black sabbath, atomic rooster, andromeda, blodwyn pig, warm dust, wild turkey, dogfeet, the kissing spell label, etc. a nice under-rated find in a nice re-issue package. a bargain and highly recommended.

rise above says "Steel Mill are one of the most enigmatic bands from the original British progressive rock boom of the late 60s/early 70s. Despite scoring a continental hit with their debut 1971 single Green Eyed God, it took three years before their record company would give the cult classic full-length album of the same title a UK release. Having been released only in Germany in 1972, it still remains a mystery why it took so long to come out in their home country. Of course, by 1975 the band had long since vanished and the music scene had changed dramatically. Nowadays the Green Eyed God album is a highly regarded major rarity, having been bootlegged endlessly and fetching in excess of £1,000 for a mint UK copy.

The sound of Steel Mill on opener Blood Runs Deep is a ripping pre-metal blast typical of the time that is actually aided by the un-intrusive use of sax, at times bringing to mind early Van Der Graaf Generator. Also here are nice dynamic build-ups and refrains, with a scorching main riff to boot. There are many comparisons you could make to the Steel Mill sound but none of them could be considered as plagiarism. Dark, savage guitar riffs combine with tasteful use of woodwind, blending Jethro Tull folkiness with an early Jade Warrior style eastern feel.
