book of grief (2013/PER KORO/I.H.R.)
DOOM-METAL. After releasing a 3 song demo in 2012 Viennas IRON HEEL are back with their 1st full-length album - 5 songs - 45min. - one title: "book of grief". Huge, epic riffs meet sludge-infested rhytms that will drag you to the black pits while retaining a heavy sense of groove. The powerful vocals are full of blues-oriented harmonies but will also lash out with hoarse growls if the song calls for it. Lyrics-wise IRON HEEL keep it classic: they clear the forest of corpses and keep the sleepwalkers at bay while you can listen to the death rattle of walled in monks. Join them for tales of ritual mummification, hungry ghosts and open graves. Spread the gospel of doom! For Fans of SERPENT VENOM, GOATSNAKE or ST. VITUS. Vinyl comes with great artwork, thick inside-out cover, black innersleeve, lyricsheet and includes a digital download card. [PK #066]

white glove test (2013/IRON LUNG)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Slushat' comrades! "white glove test" is IRON LUNG's 3rd studio album and follow-up to 2007's wildly successful "sexless//no sex". What started out being the slow industrial concept album and pointedly left-field endeavor turned into a frantically paranoid and claustrophobic power-violence masterpiece complete with water tight stop/start compositions leading the way to crushing sludge bits intermingled with blistering hardcore pummel. It's what adults of the Cold War era would refer to as "your typical kill-your-mother-kill-your-father type stuff". US-version comes with gatefold-cover.

silent sins (2010/PANIC)
HARDCORE. Derived from the concrete slabs of Chicago, IRON RAIN formed in 2009 as a musical outlet for aggressive songs and thoughtful dissection of American culture.

IRON RAIN is carrying the torch of raw, pissed-off hardcore with a direction for its anger that the bands of the '90s hardcore scene put into motion. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
