IRON SAVIOR: "Titancraft"
Review by Martien Koolen
Iron Savior have been around for 20 years now and if you buy a new album of these German hard rockers you know exactly what you can expect, namely decent "ordinary" German power metal.
Titancraft is Iron Savior's 9th album containing 10 new songs, filled with very recognisable guitar riffs, blazing solos, anthem-like choruses and up beat, driving drums. The production of this album is as crystal clear as ever and the signature vocals of the only original member Piet Sielck are classic in the true sense of the word.
Favourite songs would be Gunsmoke due to the very addictive chorus, which actually sounds like Ratt and the very MElodic rocker Beyond The Horizon. Other excellent songs are the up tempo Strike Down The Tyranny and the also very fast Rebellious. Of course you can also "enjoy" a power ballad, being the maybe somewhat superfluous I Surrender. But in the end you can say that Iron Saviour did it again, as they have created another good power metal album with great songs and if you are a fan of the genre, you already have bought Titancraft or not. Turn up the volume for maximum enjoyment!!
