I was drawn to this release initially by the strikingly simple cover art which strongly reminded me of old school Dungeons and Dragons/tabletop miniature box art. I pressed play with no expectations.What happened next is that I spent the next 15 or so minutes with a massive smile on my face headbanging along to thoroughly enjoyable, no frills heavy metal.I love music that takes me somewhere else. Music that allows me to forget the mundane reality in which I live and travel to a place of heroes, dragons and epic quests. To me this feeling is more important than any level of technical musicianship or glossy production. To that end I'm so impressed with Throne of Iron. The songs are massively enjoyable with great riffs and hooks, solos that fit the song and lyrics you can sing along with but the songs also accomplish that extra feat of allowing the listener to escape to another world. Great stuff.Really looking forward to hearing more from these guys.. This is part one of my gameplay from the FINAL Blood Moon War of 2018! This video shows lots of capital battles, some decent solos and rallies, and MENDAX . 2018 Demo by Throne Of Iron, released 31 July 2018 1. A Call To Adventure 2. Lichspire 3.
