British Power Metal.. An in-your-face onslaught of British Power Metal, combining the genius of Iron Maiden with the art rock of Magnum and master riffs of Black Sabbath.
STAIRWAY is Graeme Leslie (Vocals & Guitar), Pete Jennens (Guitar), Rob Jennens (Bass) and Andy Edwards (Drums). Their Debut CD, 'No Rest:No Mercy', produced by Paul Hodson (Hard Rain, Bob Catley), was released on Edge Records in 1993 and hailed Stairway's International popularity. The album was released in Japan later that same year, and debuted at #48 in the Japanese Import Charts. The band continued to work live, and after completing contractual obligations with their former label, Stairway independently released their 2nd CD, 'Bleeding Heart' in July 1999. During 2002 Stairway's 3rd album 'On Hallowed Ground ' was released to great reviews and media feedback, as well as incredible support from fans world wide. Following up on this success, Stairway signed a Licensing deal with American Label Retroactive Records in 2005 to re-release the 'No Rest: No Mercy' album as a Limited Edition and is now available on the market. Gigs to follow this up took place in 2005, followed by an incredible gig appearance in October '05 at Metalfest Germany Co-headlining with Rob Rock (USA) and Narnia (Sweden). In 2005/06 the band began recording their new and 4th CD - 'The Other Side of Midnight', a disc of pure Power Metal, which is now available on general release in the UK from www.hmv.co.uk and www.cdbaby.com This, together with the album's debut Chart entry at #2 in the USA's National College Chart and two Nominations for Best Album and Best Group in the NMW Awards, may well be the album that puts STAIRWAY on the musical map for real!
