Boston, Massachusetts was never fertile ground for the heavy metal genre, at least not until Steel Assassin arrived on the scene. The late 1970s witnessed a steady growth of hard rock musicians in the area south of Boston known as the South Shore. When the phenomenon known as the new wave of British heavy metal landed on our metal deficient shores, there was one group of hard rockers that welcomed the invasion with open arms. After being heavily influenced by the classics such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, UFO, Thin Lizzy, and Led Zeppelin, there came the thundering infusion of new metal from across the sea. Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Angelwitch, Saxon, Raven, Accept, and the list goes on.

Steel Assassin's popularity expanded well outside the greater Boston area. With steady European airplay and a mountain of fan mail from all over Europe and beyond. Steel Assassin became featured on Metal Blade Record's Metal Massacre 6 and soon achieved underground metal cult-status playing shows with the likes of Metallica, Raven and Y&T. The twin flying-v assault of Curran and Mooney, the weapon-wielding front man Escolas, the freight-train thunder of Grasso and Michalowski, all became trademarks of the Steel Assassin style.
