IRON KINGDOM Release New Single “White Wolf”
August 14, 2019, 9 days ago
Inspired by legendary pillars of heavy metal such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, The Scorpions, and Rush, Iron Kingdom is well known for their energetic and electrifying stage presence, as well as intricate musical melodies that bring listeners back to a time when the genre was in its prime.
Now they are back with a new album, On The Hunt, which is sure to remind people of the glory days of metal. With two new members in the lineup, there are new inspirations and approaches in the music while maintaining the traditional sound.
First single, “White Wolf”, is streaming below.
The band explains the track:
"Our first single 'White Wolf' from the new album, On The Hunt, takes on an almost Savatage or Iron Maiden musical approach, a classic metal sound including lots of variety and ripping leads, while still maintaining a catchy chorus and simple but fun melodies. Lyrically this song speaks about the fictional character known as Geralt of Rivia from the Witcher series, created by Andrzej Sapkowski."
The nine new tracks are fun tunes that translate well into a live setting, which is paramount for Iron Kingdom who take great pride in their live show. Fans of the classic including Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Queensryche, and Helloween will revel in Iron Kingdom, who put a modern spin on traditional heavy metal.
On The Hunt is due out October 4th, and available for pre-order via the band's online store here. Album artwork by Alan Lathwell.
