the"brandish'd steel" represents Macbeth's sword! the fact that it "smok'd of bloody execution" suggests Macbeth is merciless and will do anything for his country, this is ironic as later in the play, a dagger smok'd with bloody execution when Macbeth kills Duncan!
Hope this helped!

sure! "like valour's minion" suggests Macbeth is the slave of bravery itself. "carved out his passage" is the same as "smok'd with bloody execution" except it also suggested Macbeth is heroic and determined! I can help with all your Macbeth questions
