Iron Fire 'Beyond The Void' Album Review by Allyson Kingsley

Iron Fire

Beyond the Void

Crime Records

March 8, 2019

Album Review by Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio

 

Iron Fire is:

Martin Steene: vocals/bass

Kirk Backarach: guitar

Gunnar Olsen: drums

  

I'll start off by saying that aside from the vast talent found in New England, I say the best music comes from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland. Fight me on that. Secondly metalheads, as proven in some such study by doctor what's-his-name do not like too much change. Slayer should sound like Slayer, Judas Priest like Judas Priest, etc. especially with the bands that have been around for more than a decade.

Iron Fire are celebrating close to 20 years on the metal map and from a listen to previous albums as well as this, their ninth full length album, they have maintained that rich glorious power metal sound. Of course every album has their different flavors and Beyond the Void encases some traditional heavy metal and thrash for a fully loaded masterpiece.

The Denmark based trio enlisted producer Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Dark Tranquility, Madball). The sound on the album is superior and every track captures you in Iron Fire's tales. Title track “Beyond the Void” is immense and fully envelopes you in its harmonious sounds. The variety and limitless energy mold the record’s structure, and the larger than life lead melodies and choruses form its irresistible soul. Check out the dynamism on “Cold Chains of the North” and “Judgement Day.” There is very little that a power metal band needs to get right in order to excel. Iron Fire are above and beyond the baseline. I can only describe the genre as like putting the softest warmest blanket over you on an arctic cold winter day. Bands like Iron Fire are the comforts of the metal kingdom.

One more thing to thank Iron Fire for is, when I checked out their other albums on Spotify, I spent three days checking out other related artists that I probably won't live long enough to listen to every one.
