The sound and style of Toledo Steel was primarily inspired by a lot of the great rock and metal bands from yesteryear. Obvious names to mention are of course Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Deep Purple and Saxon etc. There’s of course hundreds of lesser known bands that were equally inspiring to us but if I were to write them all out, the list would go on forever… haha! We always wanted the band to have quite a heavy hitting and in your face kind of sound! A sound that grabs your attention.
