Iron Angel will release their first album since '86 next year. Notice the devil figure in the bottom right corner of the cover art. :lol:

Lol...I just listened to Hellish Crossfire the other day. I can't listen to the track at work so I'll check it out later. New material is always welcome.

Hmm, not a bad return. Pretty basic-sounding track but enjoyable enough. I like Iron Angels older stuff so I'm sure I'll be checking this out.

That fun-times trad heavy metal track does NOT fit that demonic cover.

Thank god for that! The artwork looks like some Moyen dogshit. A friend's hot take: Hell Awaits (Brown Leather Edition)

This song is surprisingly cool though. I'm mostly floored by how they handled the production in a tasteful way. This sounds really natural. I was expecting "huge" everything. If the album tends more towards speed and this song is an outlying rocker, I might be in. If they're mostly this same pace, I'm way the fuck out.

For sure. That looks awesome. I love the logo they used on their 84 demo, I was literally just drooling over it yesterday:

^ Nice cover art for a demo tape.

I Just think that they should do a 2018 version for The Metallian.

I can't imagine nothing more commercial than this.

I like the new track, but like others have said, it's traditional metal. Looking forward to hearing more.

That track did nothing for me. I wanna hear some Germanic speed metal mayhem that they are known for!

the fact that the entire line up has been revamped for the current incarnation surely is reflected in the music
ofcourse with both original guitarists gone anything else is impossible.

I enjoyed that, but it's way more "soaring heavy metal" than the down-and-dirty speed metal they spit out in the '80s.

Well, can't expect a follower to Hellish Crossfire 32 years later obv. Plus none of the original members left except singer.
They already stopped doing that speed metal with Winds of War so...
I guess they are trying to represent what the band was used to be in the 80's tho.
But this record will also suffer from modern sounding too.

Yeah it's just okay. I'm hoping this is just a one-off and there are faster songs on the album. If they are all like this it will likely be pretty boring.

Much much better! Glad to hear some kick ass speed metal blaring from my speakers. I hope there are a few fast tunes like this on the record.

I had minimize my screen and not watch the video...too cheesy and couldn't stop laughing at it. I like the song though. Much better than the first single. The video is too silly to take seriously...lol

ETA: It's like he doesn't know what to do with his hands. He keeps looking around like a meth addict...lol.

At least the singer still gets time to gesture. But it should be 100% gestures.

Yes it is! It's been on a regular rotation for me since I got it. Solid all the way through IMO.
