Riddle Of Steel is a 3 piece rock band from St. Louis, Missouri. Consisting of Andrew Elstner (guitar, vocals) Jimmy Vavak (Bass, vocals, ex-five deadly venoms) and Rob Smith (Drums, Traindodge, Roma79), RoS play powerful and melodic rock their own way, influenced by timeless bands such as Led Zep, King Crimson, the Police, David Bowie, and mid-west rock scene legends like Shiner. To date, RoS have released four discs, a seven inch or two and various comps on St. Louis based Ascetic records. They released their first CD, 'Burn' 6 track Ep in 2001, featuring Ken McCray on drums. The follow up to this was their first full-length release in 2003, 'Python' (named after their old and now broken tour van) with Dave Turncrantz on drums.

About a year after Dave's split with Riddle of Steel, he moved to Chicago and joined Dakota/Dakota who then became Russian Circles. After Dave, Rob Smith of Traindodge and Roma79 (OKC/San Francisco) stepped in as their new and final full time drummer. They recorded their third full-length disc, 'Got This Feelin'' in 2005. 'Got This Feelin'' was also released on vinyl by Robotic Empire. Their fourth and final release, '1985,' recorded by Paul Malinowski at Black Page Studio, was released in 2007, also on Ascetic Records.

RoS toured the US coast to coast countless times, and left shores to hit Europe and the UK in April 2006, and again in late winter of '07. After roughly a thousand shows, Riddle of Steel played their last gig in September of 2008 and are now no longer a working band. Read more on Last.fm.
