IRON FIRE picture
Iron Fire is a Danish power and speed metal band which formed in 1995 under the name 'Misery'. The band soon changed their name to 'Decades of Darkness', then finally, to 'Iron Fire'. In 1998, they released their first demo, which was received extremely well, and they signed to Noise Records. Their debut album sounded a lot like common power metal bands, such as HammerFall, Helloween & Running Wild. What makes them different from other power metal bands is the vocalist, Martin Steene, who has a voice similar to Vince Neil (Mötley Crüe).

The year 2000 saw the release of Iron Fire's debut album, 'Thunderstorm' , which received rave reviews. The band's sophmore effort, 'On the Edge' (2001), was not viewed as the bands best work by critics. The band has never had a stable line-up, with multiple changes coming from 2001 - 2006.

IRON FIRE Voyage of the Damned

Voyage of the Damned is a solid album by Danish power metal veterans Iron Fire. Seven albums into their career, any band which hasn't burned out has typically either refined their approach to a fine art or just resorted to phoning it in; curiously, Iron Fire seem to have done both, since what they've produced here is a decent rendition of their particular power metal formula with the occasional symphonic ambition but ends up feeling totally disposable due to how generic it is. It's a simple offering of the sort which lots of bands dabble in, but Iron Fire pull it off with a bit more consistency at least the average power metal act - plus I have to give them points for including a Warhammer 40,000-inspired bonus track in the form of Warmaster of Chaos.

IRON FIRE Voyage of the Damned

Voyage of the Damned is the seventh album by Danish power metal act Iron Fire. The album was released in 2012. I’m going to confess straight up that while I’m not that familiar with the band to fully judge them what I have heard from them in the past has seemed listenable music, but nothing really remarkable to write home about. They’ve always seemed to tackle predictable themes in a predictable power metal way and have never stood out from the crowd for me.

Voyage of the Damned goes some way to change that, lyrically taking their listeners for a trip into space, and Iron Fire’s brand of power metal on the album additionally draws on traditional metal with symphonic and extreme metal influences, sometimes with very slight progressive leanings. Despite this Voyage of the Damned still has the unmistakable sound of European styled power metal, but Iron Fire attempts to further expand their sound through most notably use the growled vocals to go with Martin Steene’s clean singing voice. Steene is quite easily the best thing Iron Fire has ever had going for them, being a very good singer who doesn’t quite fit the whole typical power metal sound they’ve had going for them in the past. To be honest with a voice like that the growling isn’t really needed, but fortunately for Iron Fire the growls do mostly work in context of Voyage of the Damned, but this seems to be a trap that many power metal bands (and artists of other styles that don’t feature growls as a rule) are falling into. I can’t say I approve of band’s giving growling time of day when they don’t play a genre that demands it, like death metal, and especially when the singer is of high calibre. In this album’s case, there is death metal growling which works, but also some that sound closer to metalcore, which don’t so much.

What makes Voyage of the Damned noteworthy for me though is anything that previous made me think of Iron Fire as just another generic power metal act seems to have been sucked into a black hole, and although I don’t find myself with as high a regard for the album as I maybe could, I find myself nodding with approval all the same at the true power behind their riffs, the excellent and tasteful use of keyboards, which are anything but typical power metal cheese and of course Steene’s excellent vocals. Compositionally it is also pretty solid stuff. Iron Fire has really moved up in the world with this album. I could do without the moments of balladry parts, because the band shows their clear strengths to be in that classic Euro power metal sound and the first proper track after the intro, Enter Oblivion OJ-666, is no better example of Iron Fire being exceptional.

Although I can’t really consider it for the top tiers of ratings Iron Fire has left me impressed with Voyage of the Damned and pleasantly surprised. They really honed their craft and if they could just continue down this path they started to follow with this album then I think that they’ll be producing some of the best power metal going. Voyage of the Damned certainly has enough killer tracks like Enter Oblivion OJ-666, Taken, Ten Years in Space and Dreams Of The Dead Moon to suggest just that. Recommended album definitely.

Realm of metalness...

Genre: power metal

European power metal has had the somewhat unfortunate reputation of being cheesy and poppy-happy, but that seems to be changing now with the emergence of European power metal acts that draw on heavier types of metal. One of these bands is the Copenhagen-based band Iron Fire (well, these guys are actually power metal veterans with several demos and albums under their belt), who, with "Voyage of the Damned", remind us that of the "power" that the term "power metal" includes.

The genre framework is unambiguously that of the aesthetics of power metal the big, epic overall sound of the album and the use of huge melodic choruses as well as the larger than life sci-fi-based subject matter of the lyrics. And, yes, there are keyboards and ballads on this album (just check the epic ballad 'The Final Odyssey' or the massively epic and symphonic title track). And these power metal elements themselves are not a problem at all. The problem to me is the way that many European power metal bands have cheesed up the genre. Fortunately, this is not something to worry about here, because there are hardly any cheesy moments on the album. Rather than being smearing in slushy cheese, the central power metal elements are neatly wrapped in thrashy guitars, groovy riffs, aggressive drums, occasional proggy shifts and odd time signatures, heavy doom-ladden passages and harsh growls and screams to supplement the already impressive – and expressive – clean vocals.

Iron Fire's brand of modern power metal, as presented on this release, not is not just the result of great songwriting but also top notch musicianship. These guys know what they are doing, and the overall performance is impeccable – from the guitar solos over the drum beats to the vocals. Drawing on genres such as melodeath, death metal, thrash metal and doom metal, Iron Fire have managed to create truly epic power metal, but, rather than going totally cheesy, they have manged to generate a dark and haunting feel – very fitting, considering that the darkness of outer space is a central theme of the album.

"Voyage of the Damned" is a slab of solid, dark and epic power metal. Totally free of Euro-power metal silliness, it is recommended to those who like their metal epic and powerful, but free from cheese.

IRON FIRE To the Grave

Album · 2009 · Power Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
"To the Grave" is the 5th full-length studio album by Danish power metal act Iron Fire. The album was released in January 2009 by Napalm Records. Lead vocalist/ main composer Martin Steene notes in the booklet that the band has seen a couple of lineup changes since the release of "Blade of Triumph (2007" as guitarist J.J. and drummer Jens B. have left Iron Fire. The band weren´t able to find a suitable replacement for J.J. in time for the recording of "To the Grave" and therefore all guitar parts on the album are recorded by Kirk Backarach (who also handles the keyboards). The did however have more luck recruiting a new drummer in Fritz Wagner.

The music on "To the Grave" is classic power metal/traditional heavy metal. Vers/chorus structured tracks, a pounding rythm section, melodic yet heavy guitars, a lead vocalist that delivers fantasy themed lyrics with conviction and some big anthemic choruses. Iron Fire deliver both fast paced tracks, mid-paced heavy tracks and slower epic ones. The opening trio of tracks pretty much tell the whole story of how the album sounds. "The Beast From the Blackness" represents the faster paced tracks, "Kill for Metal" the mid-paced heavier tracks and "The Demon Master" the more epic styled tracks (albeit still pounding and heavy).

The sound production is powerful and suits the music well.

"To the Grave" is basically power metal like our mother made it but I can´t help to feel that the music is pretty generic. It´s not like Iron Fire stand out among the thousands of other power metal acts out there or bring anything new to the genre. But you can´t take away from them that they deliver their music with passion, power and conviction. A 3 star rating is warranted.
