AFM: “Rise Of The Hero” Release Info & CD Release Show!
With “The Landing”, German heavy/power metal force IRON SAVIOR returned to the scene after a 4-year break in November 2011. The band made impact on the scene again with one of their very best releases, and that’s where IRON SAVIOR now continue with “Rise Of The Hero” (out on February 28th). As usual, the new album was recorded and produced in Piet Sielck’s Powerhouse studio. What can be expected? A full dose of first-class heavy music, power metal to the max!
But IRON SAVIOR like to surprise their fans as well from time to time. Who would have expected a cover version of Mando Diao’s “Dance With Somebody” from the Hamburg-based band? Well, whatever works is allowed. So Sielck admits that “Dance With Somebody” originally was recorded to become a bonus track for the limited edition, “but we simply liked it too much and finally decided to make it a regular album track”.
Beside the “saviorized” Mando Diao song you find 11 crunchy, melodic, powerful metal tracks in best IRON SAVIOR style. Compared to “The Landing”, the new material even turned out to be a little heavier while easily keeping the band’s trademarks alive.
IRON SAVIOR will celebrate the release of their new album with a special LIVE release show on February 26th in their home town Hamburg, Germany.
