Iron Savior: Kill Or Get Killed
Iron Savior - Kill Or Get Killed Music Review

Iron Savior: Kill Or Get Killed

Heavy/Power Metal
4.0/5.0

Practically legends in the realm of German heavy metal, Iron Savior returns with their eleventh studio album, Kill Or Get Killed. Formed in 1996, vocalist and guitarist Piet Sielck still leads the band with a relatively stable crew. Additionally, Sielck found some writing inspiration from British sci-fi writer Peter Hamilton's Commonwealth Saga and Pandora's Star, about the destruction of humanity by an alien civilization.

Iron Savior

With Kill Or Get Killed, Iron Savior continues their pursuit of "keep it true" heavy power metal. Across the ten songs, you'll find their usual musical suspects: thick twin guitar harmony and killer solos, booming drums and thundering bass for gallop and groove and, of course, Sielck's trademark assertive raspy vocals.

For the songs, you get some riff roaring power metal with Roaring Thunder, Legends Of Glory, Heroes Ascending, and Kill Or Get Killed, all delivering killer guitar solos. With Eternal Quest and From Dust And Ruble, you'll find more speedy power metal, yet wrapped in some rock groove with fine vocal harmony in their refrains. A true arena metal anthem arrives with Stand Up And Fight. Blistering with sharp riffs and a thick bass line, the song drives to a fist pumping chorus and then later another wild guitar solo. Needless to say, once again Piet Sielck and Iron Fire deliver another strong and entertaining platter of Teutonic power metal loaded with gallop, groove, killer guitar work, and powerful choruses. Easily recommended.
