From it's opener "One Step Closer" to the last notes of the title track "Astral Travel," Tempered Steele's latest CD delivers. It's hard for the band members themselves to describe the sound; each song is something new to them with a sound of it's own. Listeners have said that at times they are reminded of such bands as Zeppelin, Sabbath, Rush, Metallica, Van Halen, Velvet Revolver, Evanescence, and Nickelback. In each case that listener was naming one of their favorite artists, and there is great satisfaction in knowing you've reminded someone of something they love. If you are a fan of rock music (hard, classic, or modern) give this CD a try and we think you'll find yourself enjoying it again and again.
"Tempered Steele has crafted a solid CD, well mixed and full of high-energy riffs. Vocalist Jeff Gregory has a sound that blends Blind Melon's Shannon Hoon and Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant..."
-- Jack Slattery, Blue Ridge Jukebox
"It is catchy, has great harmonies, and deserves radio play."
--Warren Kurtz, City Magazine in reference to "The Gift"
