Wings Of Steel is a Los Angeles based traditional heavy metal band that was founded by guitarist Parker Halub & vocalist Leo Unnermark in 2019. In 2022, the band released a self-titled debut EP. And on May 19, 2023, Wings Of Steel released their full-length record titled, Gates Of Twilight.
In this interview, Leo and Parker sit down to discuss the writing and some of the intricate details behind Gates Of Twilight, their very different surroundings growing up, what it’s like to be an independent band in the music industry today, touring, and much more.
I must say that this Gates Of Twilight record is one of the best I’ve heard in the traditional heavy metal genre in quite some time. If you are a fan of bands like Judas Priest, Queensryche, and Iron Maiden, make sure to spend some time with this record. It’s a great one.

Hello everyone! My name is Scott Itter, but some know me as Dr. Music. I am a music journalist and photographer out of the Chicagoland area, and I have been in practice for over 20 years. I grew up in the 70’s with two big brothers that showed me all kinds of rock and roll. As I grew older I ventured out into different genres like jazz, funk, folk, and whatever else I could wrap my ears around. As I read every liner note and every Circus and Hit Parader like they were the Old and New Testament, I came to realize that I just love sound and appreciate all the people that create it.
I later became a stay-at-home dad and started honing my writing and photography skills to keep my mind from turning into mashed peas. My kids are now adults, my mind is only slightly mushy, and I am thrilled to have the honor of presenting my work to you!
