The history of the band: The first line-up of Metalworks emerged back in the early nineties, with Vocalist/Guitarist Steff, and Lead Guitarist Tony Parsons, together with various other musicians sharing duties; Peter Cowan a regular on drums.
Prior to Metalworks, Steff and Tony had been in a couple of bands together, and for a short time Tony was also part of an early Iron Maiden line-up, recording the tracks Wrathchild and Sanctuary for the ‘Metal For Muthas’ compilation album, The BBC Live Sessions, and embarking on their first UK Tour. Tony and former Maiden Drummer Doug Sampson were later replaced by Dennis Stratton and Clive Burr. Several years later, a chance meeting, and then some informal jamming with old mates, led on to what is now Metalworks.
