“Some people wearing leather cause they want to be seen,

while other people thinking that they look bad ’n‘ mean,

but I’m the only brother in my neighborhood,

who’s wearing black leather cause it feels so good…”

This Song Passage from the Title "Black Leather", the Band's album of the same name, makes it clear where the IRON HORSES journey goes, which path they have already gone and how connected they are to their Music.

"Hell! What kind of High-calibre storey from Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania"

Sweat Driving, energetic and authentic, the Men around Frontman Sebastian "Babschke" Wegner are a real live hammer! So Band Names and Musicians merge into who you are, a Rock Act that captivates its Audience at Full steam like a steely Ross.

"The Iron Horses reduced Schleswig to rubble"

Whether young, old, Club or Festivals, Hits like "Desperados, Crash and Burn, The Steammachine, Stage On Fire, Punisher, Boneshaker or Black Leather" show what a great Songwriting is in the Band. Through their excessive live Shows, the Band always manages to take fans on a one-off Trip and leave the Boiling Point far behind.

Band Formation: 26.08.2000

Genre: Kick Ass Rock ‘n’ Roll


Iron Horses is a german Heavy Metal Band from the Baltic Sea.

It was founded by Manuel Arlt, Sven Möller and Sebastian Wegner in August 2000. The current drummer Gino Roepke joined the band 2013.

The Name Iron Horses is inspired by a local steam engine and stands for the trains wich travelled through the wild west of north america.

The first LP Titan ’n‘ Bones appeared 2007, wich earned some excellent reviews in the press and took the band a big step forward. Because of this record the band played shows with Molly Hatchet,Rose Tattoo, Alice Cooper, Grave Digger and Doro.

In 2013 the Iron Horses got a record deal with T-Rave Records and published the LP Black Leather. Bassist Ludwig Wabra joined the Iron Horses in 2015 and completed the line-up.

„This band is definitely not boring“ because of the highly individual vocal performance by Sebastian Wegner and the powerful, always coming to the point, music of his band. Hard and agressive Rock’n‘ Roll, rooted in the eighties, with wonderful Blues influenced guitar solos.

This mix comes along quite fresh. Very own! Very authentic!

After the sudden death of their manager, the Iron Horses stood in front of a pile of broken glass, rallied again and contacted Dieter Hecker of Ultra Music, whom they met in 2017 at the Megalith Open Air, which was there with its headlining band on site. So it came about that Dieter became the new Booker & Manager of the Iron Horses and brought the band back on track. The boys went into the studio to record the Black Leather successor, which is expected to be released in spring 2020. With the R-EVOLUTION OF STEEL TOUR in March 2019, in July as headliner at the OAS - Open Air Seedorf, and as co-headliner at the oldest Russian international rock festival in Kaliningrad, the K!nRock Festival on August 24, 2019, which will be also 25th anniversary celebrated, the band continued to show presence. Hopefully, after the release of the new album, things will be uphill. New videos are to be produced and the band is looking forward to the new festival season and connected with several concerts in the open air, but also indoors.
