Steve Cone's Information
Cone is a New York native and has been
a member of several prominent bands in
his years of making music. After
relocating to the desert, Cone built a
studio and started writing his own
brand of metal, forged in the classic
European tradition of the New Wave of
British Heavy Metal legends such as
Iron Maiden Saxon, Accept and
Motorhead to name but a few. His mix
or power metal/ progressive hard rock
is tempered with his own street-smart
style picked up from his days of
playing the dark, seedy clubs of New
York City. The results have been
nothing short of impressive with each
Cone release topping its predecessor
with intelligent yet wild songs about
power, betrayal, and the various dark
places in our minds.
Steve Cone has not forgotten that rock
and roll is about energy, drive, and
most of all, rattling your cage until
the whole world seems to be shaking.
With all of Coneís solo releases, this
Arizona-based guitarist and singer
continuously establishes himself as
one of the premier heavy metal
songwriters on the scene today.
The phrase ďheavy metalĒ is too easily
tossed around. So where does Cone fit
into this landscape? If the essence of
metal lies in heavy guitars,
thunderous rhythms, explosive leads
and memorable choruses, then Cone
becomes the epitome of the genre.
But when it is all said and done, what
Steve Cone brings to the table is the
ability to craft memorable hooks that
rock so incredibly hard. And
ultimately, thatís what matters most.
Steve Cone is a veteran of the hard
rock and heavy metal scene and
continues to grow and develop as an
artist that is quickly grabbing
attention from the masses.
