Steel Mill - Green Eyed God (1972)

The one and only album from this English band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, percussion, flute, bass, guitars, keyboards, woodwinds and vocals.
Two guest musicians helped out on guitars and bass.

Nothing is known about this band whatsoever. And there has been those who has been looking for the band members and returned empty handed.
This album and the singles sells for a king's ransom on the net.

This is again a semi-classic album from an obscure band. It has been re-released a couple of times too. My review is of the original album from 1972.

The band had a lot of various influences and that is what comes across on this album.

Take folk rock in the vein of Jethro Tull, mix it with blues, add a lot of hard rock and brass rock. Also add in some soul and krautrock too. There is some occult rock here too and the music is pretty dark and down that alley.

The music is decent enough. The vocals are pretty good too. It is an album well worth checking out indeed.
