Caress of Steel is the third studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released in 1975. The album showcases the band's continued evolution to hard progressive rock as opposed to the blues-based hard rock style of the band's first album. Although Rush's previous album Fly by Night dabbled in longer conceptual pieces such as "By-Tor & the Snow Dog", such works were the central focus of Caress of Steel.

Caress of Steel is the third studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released on September 24, 1975 by Mercury Records in the United States, Anthem Records in Canada, and Atlantic Records in Japan. Its total length is 45:00. The band's lineup included vocalist and bassist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and drummer Neil Peart. Rush's previous release showed a move to a more progressive rock sound. Continuing that trend, Caress of Steel had two long epic conceptual pieces that made up about 33 minutes of the album

Caress of Steel can often be seen as an album of firsts. It is without a doubt Rush’s first true foray into the realm of progressive rock. It is also their first album to contain a side-long epic and a song longer than 10 minutes. However, it was also their first (and only) commercial failure, leading to the album as a whole being cast aside by both the band and critics. Though songs such as Bastille Day and Lakeside Park are considered classics (the latter was even played during Rush’s farewell tour, R40), the remaining tracks are often seen as too complex or too ambitious

When Rush finished their third album, Caress of Steel, the trio was assured that they had created their breakthrough masterpiece. But when the album dropped off the charts soon after its release, it proved otherwise. While it was Rush's first release that fully explored their prog rock side, it did not contain the catchy and more traditional elements of their future popular work - it's quite often too indulgent and pretentious for a mainstream rock audience to latch onto
