Made Of Iron are a German power metal band with a definite love for Iron Maiden and the ability to write some extremely powerful, exciting and catchy metal anthems. “Fight for the Cross…Die for Jerusalem” is pure bliss for fans of this genre with its gallop and swagger together. Listen to the amazing guitars on “The Storm Just Began” and you will soon be drawn deeper into one killer bass line that is pure Steve Harris. The problem is, the mighty Maiden can no longer write an entire CD full of songs like this.
Fortunately, Made Of Iron keeps this stellar pace up throughout the entire disc. Made Of Iron keep the relentless pace up through other powerful tracks like “The Alchemist”, “Peace In Flames” and “Gates To Purgatory”. The closing track “King Of All Kings” is their private “Rhyme Of The Ancient Mariner”. Clocking in over nine minutes in length, it is epic powerful and a perfect choice to close the disc. Yes, this kind of material has been covered by many bands, but few are in league with this release.
