Defender of Steel - The Soundtrack

Fri, 23/09/2022 - 18:28

Guys and gals,

this is something I originally wanted to do in June when I posted my battle vest here on TSS.


During the process of creating the "Defender of Steel", I discovered so many awesome bands while looking at other vests, searching for patches and discussing the layout with fellow metal maniacs. I really enjoyed this and it carried me well through the pandemic. As my goal was to finish the vest before the Up the Hammers festival in Athens, I wasn't able to finish the "soundtrack" for it in time, as I sewed on the last patch two days before the festival started.

Now I'm getting in the mood for "Keep it True Rising II" next weekend, and I thought: "Hey, better late than never". So let me now share the soundtrack to my battle vest. I hope you enjoy it and probably discover some gems you didn't know before. Most of the bands are on Spotify - five are not, for them I added a youtube link.

Have fun! \m/
