They are an institution, and their metal is usually used to define what it means to be a Power Metal band. Iron Savior are back with their new album Kill Or Get Killed. And they are in firing form.
“Kill or Get Killed,” the title track is a rip roaring journey through the plains, delivering some of the most fantastic melodies and riffs that this reviewer has heard in a long time. It is pure dedication and snarling metal. “Roaring Thunder,” is a defiant call to arms. With a snarling riff thrown in there, with added tenacity and pounding grace, it ensures that the listener is hooked from the get go. “Eternal Quest,” another riff sandwich which delivers on the counts again and again and leaves the listener hungry for more. “From Dust and Ruble,” a slower song, with a fantastic bass line, this song ensures that the listener is hooked from the get go. “Sinner or Saint,” a song with a destructive riff, and some searing vocals, the perfect performance.
“Stand Up and Fight,” a snarling riff monster, that takes the time to growl and grow with pain and pleasure. “Heroes Ascending,” takes one step forward, two steps forward and shreds along the way. “Never Stop Believing,” is an anthem, right down from the guitar licks to the vocals. “Until We Meet Again,” another interesting slow shredder. “Legends of Glory,” grows and snarls with pounding might.
The album is out on 8th March via AFM Records.
