Ironsword, the Portuguese cult underground epic metal force, have finally revealed the first details about their upcoming album, Servants of Steel, to be released with Moonspell Fernando Ribeiro's powerhouse label Alma Mater Records on January 24th 2020.
Recorded at the Pentagon Audio Manufacturers with Fernando Matias in Lisbon, Portugal, the band teamed up with legendary producer Harris Johns (Helloween, Voivod, Kreator, Sodom), mixing the Barbarians’ new magnum opus! The result is beyond spectacular and it’s Ironsword like you never heard it before, with the same barbaric drive but with a top-notch sound that will take their and Epic Metal fans by storm! Servants of Steel will not only signal how alive the Portuguese metal scene is, but also deliver a blistering Heavy Metal record the world of steel will need to hear, four years after the band's much-acclaimed None but the Brave record. Today we get to hear a first single to the track IN THE COILS OF SET, watch Ironsword's brand new lyric video HERE!
"This is definately the most challenging album ever written and stands out from all previous works.“ Guitarist and vocalist Tann comments. "Everything that is quintessentelly IRONSWORD is present here and out in full force."
supported by 12 fans who also own “In the Coils of Set”
This is the album that Grand Magus have tried to write after 'Hammer Of The North'. It's hard to decide on my favourite aspect: Kuschke's (Desaster) powerful riffing and his epic leads, the stellar bass work, the raw but dynamic production ... While there are now more heavy metal bands out there than ever, records like this one are the rare proof that it's still possible to arrange traditional elements in a refreshing way! Sojourner
