IRON FIRE’s ‘Beyond The Void’ is out now and streaming in its entirety at:
https://ironfire.bandcamp.com/album/beyond-the-void

How do you top great power metal albums like Voyage of the Damned and Among the Dead?
Well, the answer from Iron Fire is to keep the focus on songwriting straight, keep the approach real and speak straight from the beating metal heart. Beyond the Void is, therefore, nothing but an honest in your face metal album, filled with blistering power metal songs that meld traditional melodic heavy metal with hard-hitting power trash. This melting pot of heavy metal madness is mixed and mastered by legendary producer Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Dark Tranquillity, Madball etc.).

This is an album spanning a musical range from Testament to Judas Priest to Helloween and beyond. Fans of good heavy metal songwriting should give this new creation a spin.

In addition to Steene and Kirk another founding member joined the battlefield, as original drummer Gunnar Olsen rejoined the band in 2015, after 15 years of absence. Iron Fire is therefore now a three piece band that still clings on to melodic old school power metal as it was meant to be played. The music however is never still and is devolved over time. From the dark epic of Voyage of the Damned, over the rock n roll influenced March of the Immortals, to classic power hymns like Wings of Rage. But first and foremost Iron Fire takes power metal very literally, as the common denominator in the music is, and has always been power – with a capital P…
