"Das Quintett aus Markneukirchen schmiedet einfach nur geilen Teutonenstahl, der irgendwo zwischen alten Running Wild-Gassenhauern und Accept- oder U.D.O.-Stampfern angesiedelt ist, der mächtig Arsch kickt und locker allen Vergleichen mit den genannten Ikonen standhält. Kaufen!"

I Gladiators da Markneukirchen (Germania) nascono nei primi anni '90. I membri della band consideravano il progetto come puro divertimento (iniziarono come cover-band), volevano semplicemente suonare Heavy Metal e passare del tempo insieme. Era chiaro fin dall'inizio che il loro sound rendeva omaggio agli Accept e al loro vocalist Udo. Il cantante degli Unrest (tedeschi anche loro), Sonke Lau, prende la band sotto di se', ispirato dalla loro energia ed entusiasmo e produce l'album di debutto "Steel Vengeance" nel 1998. La scena underground HM si interessa subito ai Gladiators, seguono infatti ottime recensioni e molte interviste, portando la band a fare anche un tour in Europa con Jag Panzer e Angel Dust e poi a supportare dal vivo i Grave Digger. Nei primi mesi del '99 esce il secondo album "Bound to Steel", obbedendo sempre alle regole ed alla tradizione della vecchia scuola HM, recensioni ed apprezzamenti furono anche migliori rispetto all'album di debutto e seguirono buone vendite anche fuori dai confini nazionali; entrambi gli album sono pubblicati sotto l'etichetta Black Arrow. Nel 2001 la band si scioglie amichevolmente.
Gladiators from Markneukirchen (Germany) were founded in the early '90s. The members of the band considered the project as just pure fun (they started as cover-band), they simply wanted to play Heavy Metal and have a great time together. It was clear since the beginning their sound paid homage to Accept and vocalist Udo.
Unrest (Germany) singer, Sonke Lau, took the band under his wings, inspired by their energy and enthusiasm and produced the debut-album "Steel Vengeance" in 1998. Underground HM scene was immediately interested to Gladiators, very good reviews and many interviews followed, granted the band to tour in Europe with Jag Panzer and Angel Dust and then successively to support live Grave Digger.
In the first months of '99 the second album "Bound to Steel" took the light, still obeying the rules and tradition of old-school HM, reviews and appreciations were even better than the debut album and also good sales outside Germany; both albums were released under Black Arrow label.
In 2001 the band split in a friendly way.
