Iron Savior
Style: Heavy Metal
Release date: June 4th 2007

‘Megatropolis’ is the sixth album from Hamburg’s Iron Savior, and for the first time in the band’s history there has not been any line-up changes from the latest album to this one. We are still dealing with Piet Sielck – Guitar & Lead Vocals, Joachim Kuster – Guitar, Thomas Nack (ex-Gamma Ray)-Drums and Danish Bassist Yenz Arnsted (ex-Brats, Y and Geisha).


After a few years of absence (the last album ‘Battering Ram’ was released in 2004) Iron Savior are back with another dose of Judas Priest inspired Heavy Metal.


Iron Savior is a band that I always found interesting and on their new album they follow the same recipe as on ‘Battering Ram’, classic Heavy Metal with raw vocals, double guitar duels and some fantastic choruses.

Just take a listen to great songs like “The Omega Man”, “Megatropolis”, “A Tale from Down Below”, “Still I Believe” or “Farewell and Goodbye”. No fillers here.


Iron Savior also benefits from a top-notch production thanks to Piet Sielck, and cover artwork created by Stephan Martiniere are also excellent.


Fans of Classic Heavy Metal should unquestionably get a copy of ‘Megatropolis’.
