Lethal Steel formed in 2011 and released their first and only demo one year later, creating an immediate buzz in underground circles with their raw and unfiltered sound of pure 80’s heavy metal. German label High Roller records swiftly signed the group and in 2016 their first full length effort Legions of the Night was released to the world. Lineup changes forced the band to take some time off and regroup as both guitarists decided to part ways, leading us to now, four years later, with the release of Running from the Dawn, a 4-track EP picking up right from where the band left off.
Ironflame are back! They have not been away for long though, since Andrew D’Cagna (involved in a ton of projects and bands, past and present) is in non-stop mode, delivering the band’s 3rd album in less than 4 years since their debut. Moreover, he is responsible for everything (apart from the lead guitar parts) making this a hyper prolific, one-man, do-it-all modern power metal operation.
The world of underground heavy metal was firmly shaken in the summer of 2018 when one of its most prominent figures, Mark “The Shark” Shelton, leader of Manilla Road and epic metal forefather, passed away suddenly. Tucker Thomasson (already a veteran of the Indiana metal scene with sludge/doom quartet Thorr-Axe and various other projects) was one of those people, basically deciding overnight to record a 3-song demo by himself and form a band in his memory (also covered M.R.’s “Crystal Logic” from their eponymous masterpiece) – and thus Throne of Iron was born.
