The heavy metal group Metalsteel began playing in 2000 with four members; Beny Kic - guitars and vocals, Matej Susnik - bass guitar, Jasa Bizjak - drums and Rok Tomsic - guitars. The group first performed at the School's Out festival in the town of Medvode, which is 13 kilometres northwest from the capital city of Slovenia, Ljubljana. The concert was taped on a videocassette. Soon Alex Skofjanec took over the vocals and the band played at numerous concerts around Slovenia. At the end of 2001 the group recorded their first demo track called Metalsteel 1 with five songs. The demo has been introduced to public at many clubs and festivals. Soon US metal magazines Metal Maniacs and Rockbottom published reviews of the demo. One year later the group stepped into a studio for the first time and recorded the song "Novi Svet" (New World). The song was placed on the SLO METAL VOL.1 Compilation, which includes selections of the best Slovenian metal groups. After the compilation was launched, Jasa Bizjak left the band due to disagreements, but soon he was replaced by Dasa Trampus as the group..s new drummer,band recorded a video for "Novi Svet". After that the group had a tour at bikers meetings. The climax of the tour occurred with appearances in Trbovlje at the Satan..s Brothers Biker's Meeting, the largest meeting of its kind.

After that the group played at many festivals, including Rock Otocec, the main rock event in Slovenia. At the Rock Otocec event many famous foreign groups appeared, among them were metal groups PRIMAL FEAR and PAUL DI ANNO. After Rock Otocec, the group took a short break and was preparing for another run at the recording studio. In July the band finally recorded its first album, "Usoda" (Destiny), under the Play Records label. The album, which contains 13 songs, was followed by a few promotional concerts and a few shows with the famous Slovenian group REQUIEM. Further on followed a tour with groups OBIDIL and SARCASM, and a tour with NEGLIGENCE, SUPREMACY and OPHIDIAN. The tour ended with a concert at the Anti X-mas festival with NOCTIFERIA, PROSPECT and others. In 2004 the group recorded a video for the song "Fobia" (Morbid Dread), which was shown to the public in February in the Medvode cinema. The concert was recorded in DVD format, but was never officially released. After this concert the group played in several metal clubs.
