Cone is a New York native and has been a member of several prominent bands in his years of making music. After relocating to the desert, Cone built a studio and started writing his own brand of metal, forged in the classic European tradition of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal legends such as Iron Maiden Saxon, Accept and Motorhead to name but a few. His mix or power metal/ progressive hard rock is tempered with his own street-smart style picked up from his days of playing the dark, seedy clubs of New York City. The results have been nothing short of impressive with each Cone release topping its predecessor with intelligent yet wild songs about power, betrayal, and the various dark places in our minds.
Steve Cone has not forgotten that rock and roll is about energy, drive, and most of all, rattling your cage until the whole world seems to be shaking. The Arizona-based guitarist and singer is one of the premier heavy metal songwriters on the scene today.
The phrase “heavy metal” is too easily tossed around. So where does Cone fit into this landscape? If the essence of metal lies in heavy guitars, thunderous rhythms, explosive leads and memorable choruses, then Cone becomes the epitome of the genre.

Blast any of the Steve Cone tracks through your music player of choice, it may be you that ends remembering rock and roll the way it is supposed to be played.
