first time I heard about Iron Fire was back in 1998 when they released a
3-track demo that got them signed to Noise Records, a couple of years
later the debut album “Thunderstorm” was
released, a great CD that sounds like a mixture between Hammerfall,
Helloween and Running Wild. A year later in 2001 the “On the Edge”
album came out and it was a huge step backwards, all of a sudden they
sounded like Hammerfall jamming with Mötley Crüe, weird shit. Noise
Records dumped Iron Fire a year later.
five years after the release of “On the Edge” Iron Fire strikes back
with a new album. Vocalist Martin Steene got four new band mates and a
new record deal with Napalm Records.
new album is titled “Revenge” (maybe a message to Noise Records) and
like on the two previous albums Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Heavenly,
Pretty Maids etc.) has done a great job producing it.
are the Mötley Crüe influences “Revenge” is pure power metal, just
listen to the second track “IronHead” or the great ballad “Savage
Prophecy” wow this is how power metal was meant to sound.
is a convincing piece of work strongly influenced by Running Wild,
Hammerfall and Manowar.
