IRON SAVIOR – Kill or Get Killed (Album Review)

German power metallers Iron Savior may not be the most widely known or recognized name in North America. But that’s a grievous oversight on us all!

While today Piet Sielck remains the sole original, the first incarnations included the likes of Kai Hansen (Helloween/Gamma Ray) and Thomen Stauch (Blind Guardian). With that comes…

IRON SAVIOR – Reforged – Riding On Fire (December 8, 2017)

Hamburg based power metal band Iron Savior was facing a problem: what to do when your early albums are not available regularly anymore but a re-issue is not possible due to legal reasons? Well, the decision was made to use this situation to give the material a sonic upgrade. “We can’t re-release our albums from the Noise Records years in their initial form”, band boss Piet Sielck says, “but we are free to re-record songs…

My Top 10 Albums of 2016 – Shawn “Animalize” Irwin

Another year has passed with new music and what a year it has been. With over 100 releases for me to go through to try and break it down to my personal top 10 favorite, wasn’t easy! As a fan of different styles of music, it was hard to pick what I feel as my Top 10. One day it might be some heavier music where other days more melodic. So many other great releases came…

Stockholm Rocks Summerfest, Day 2 – July 23rd

The first day of the Stockholm Rocks Summerfest brought some surprises. Together with two friends, I board the commuter train headed for day 2. It travels from the hotel that should have provided a great view of the Väsby Rock Festival (unfortunately the festival went belly up in April) to be there in time for Erik Grönwall of H.E.A.T. to kick off the second day. There are definitely more people here at the start of…

Iron Savior – Titancraft (Album Review)

Even the most music savvy among us cannot possibly have heard all the great new music that is released every day. Therefore, it is understandable if you are not familiar with German power metal quartet, Iron Savior, but that should change with the release of their ninth studio album, Titancraft. Formed in 1996, Iron Savior had the vision to create traditional power metal (with a dash of NWOBHM) using science fiction concept-linked lyrics. Although the band has undergone many line-up…

 With The Landing, German heavy/power metal force Iron Savior returned to the scene after a 4 year break in November 2011.
