Artist: Band: Iron Savior Album: Condition Red CD Review:
What is heroism? If you’d like a rock definition, Iron Savior may be your dictionary. Loud and fast guitars and drums – like hard rock or metal – plus shouting-to-the-wind vocals, backed up by a chorus of Vikings who have maimed more maidens than you’ve had hot dinners.
Andreas Kück (Keyboards & Vocals) Thomas Nack (Drums & Percussion) Piet Sielck (Guitar & Lead Vocals) Joachim "Pisel" Küstner (Guitar & Vocals) Jan-S. Eckert (Bass & Vocals)
Personally, the thing I like most about the band (since my Iron Maiden collection is nil) is the over the top vocals that scream together at strategic points in the songs. Not since Queen have I heard this many voices, strongly emphasized. Love it!
The album is over an hour long, and makes me want to track down more of their insane muscles.
So, if you can stand the pace, and heat, you might want to smash your head up against a wall and try ‘em out.
