Iron Savior

Power metal -- a forceful, hard-driving,and aggressive yet melodic style of heavy metal associated with headbangers like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Queensrÿche, Helloween, and King Diamond -- got started in the '70s and reached its commercial peak in the '80s. But after the '80s -- after Nirvana and Pearl Jam radically reshaped rock music in general -- power metal (which is closely related to fantasy metal) was considered old-school and wasn't nearly as plentiful; the dominant metal style of the '90s and 2000s has been alternative metal (a broad, far-reaching term that has been applied to everyone from Hammerlock to Rage Against the Machine to Sevendust). Nonetheless, some new power metal bands surfaced in the '90s, and their melodic yet aggressive approach was a throwback to the '70s and '80s. Like Sweden's Evergrey, Argentina's Jezabel, Italy's Rhapsody, and New Jersey's Symphony X, Germany's Iron Savior is a '90s/2000s band that is untouched by post-'80s alt metal; unapologetically retro, Iron Savior is mindful of Priest, Maiden, Queensrÿche, Helloween, and other bands from power metal's heyday. Everything about Iron Savior is retro in a '70s/'80s-like fashion; from their appearance to their guitar riffs to their larger-than-life, fantasy-band lyrics, Iron Savior takes listeners back to a time when Saxon, Grim Reaper, Savatage, and King Diamond reigned supreme.

Iron Savior was formed in Germany in 1996 by veteran headbanger Piet Sielck, a multi-faceted singer, guitarist, producer, engineer, and keyboardist who had been in a very early lineup of Helloween back in the early '80s. It was in 1996 that Sielck (who has no problem singing and writing in English despite growing up in a country where German is the primary language) recruited singer/guitarist Kai Hansen (of Helloween and Gamma Ray fame) and drummer Thomen Stauch (who had been with Blind Guardian). Along the way, Iron Savior has had its share of lineup changes. Both Hansen and Stauch have since left the band; another ex-member is drummer Dan Zimmerman (who has also been with Gamma Ray and Freedom Call). Reportedly, Hansen left Iron Savior on friendly terms with Sielck; after deciding that trying to split his time between Iron Savior and Gamma Ray was way too demanding, he opted to simplify his life and concentrate on Gamma Ray exclusively. In 2002, Iron Savior's five-person lineup included Sielck (lead vocals, guitar), Joachim Küstner (guitar, background vocals), Jan Soren Eckert (bass, background vocals), Andreas Kuck (keyboards, background vocals), and Thomas Nack (drums, percussion). Iron Savior's self-titled debut album was released in 1997; it was followed by Unification in 1998, Interlude in 1999, Dark Assault in 2001, and Condition Red in 2002. ~ Alex Henderson, Rovi

On Pandora's About bit for these guys, they spend 2 paragraphs describing what power metal is. I wanna know about the band, not a history of the rise and decline of PM because of grunge.
Been listen to Iron Savior since 2005 have all their albums but the latest release. These guy rock! Like a battering ram!
Good bio. Most are dated and sparse but this was a good read for a band I like.
Laaaaaaast man aliiive!
Found these guys in 2004, been listening ever since.
firefightvss h i v a
Rocks my balls, do they tour the USA? Rock iron savi
They are coming out with a new album this year.
I love the beginning!!!
Without a doubt my favorite band. For anybody to outseat both Iron Maiden and Judas Priest at once says a lot.

Spent a year looking for a single album, and it was totally worth it!

Why have I never heard these guys before? This is awesome.
i love their songs
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
Amazing, the story and the music together is just amazing.
Savior kicks total a**, but let me point out, in the bio... it calls King Diamond power metal. NO! this is untrue (although King Diamond, incidentally , IS awesome). Iron Savior's great songs include: Battering Ram, Tyranny (or something like that, maybe not called tyranny) Tales of The Bold, and Watcher In The Sky. Tasty metal!

Sweet someone other than me connected the dots...Walte r , thank you. So far I love this band and while they do have some "fantasy" based songs, its a mostly scifi lyrical band. (if that makes sense, smh) looking forward to finding more songs by this band.
Iron Savior is just amazing
iron savior sounds like a good metal band.
I'm victim to the Cybernatic Queen. I love that song!
glorenzen1

blackcat879

terhar86
I will admit. This is music I would hit my nuts up with before impregnating my wife to make my semen totally badass.
Awesome band. Waiting for their next record!
If you like this one, consider getting the Iron Savior saga from the beginning.
butter294 is right. The bands that he mentioned are the best out there.
LONG LIVE METAL!!!!!
GODSMACK SUCKS DICK THROUGH A CRACKPIPE
f**k all of you guys. godsmack isnt metal, yes. its grunge leaning towards metal. dont get me wrong, my preference is definately power metal but godsmack are good musicians. i'd like to see any of you a**holes make any records that makes nearly half as many sales as them
Godsmack isnt metal... its panzy s**t... its all about Hammerfall, iced earth, helloween/ga m m a ray, gravedigger, edguy, saxon, steel attack, wolf, dream evil... etc
Godsmack blows.
UP THE IRONS!!!
songs are nice. ^_^

Sci-fi based power metal. Pretty sweet.
These guys rock, but i have to agree with somebody earlier, the singer does sound foolish on more than one occasion.

and "Tyler Lotz, destroyer of planets, lover of women, a king among men" is roughly THE coolest name I've ever seen, by the way.
wjamesgreenl e a f
Fantasy my a**, this is SCI-FI based power metal, something I've been looking for for quite a while.
odinscross69
Yet another band Kai Hansen helped establish(Gu s G. Is like the new Kai LOL). They are still good without him even though I miss his vocal input.
disagre with review.bnwoh m , m a i d e n , p r e i s t etc sound was reshaped by thrash slayer,metal i c a etc. hair metal killed commercial metal and was replaced with another commercial whore...grun g e . i n the begining they all good until its flavor of the month jump on the money wagon trend.btw this seems like good stuff
I really like these guys, thanks pandora never would have found them with you. Just went through there web page, and concept album doesn't come close, thier site makes it sound like each of thier albums is another chapter of a story.
i like it sounds hella funny
prog
I like Cybernetic Queen! The group is okay. I'd like to hear more of their stuff.
is megatropolis a concept album? atleast THAT would explain cybernetic queen...
I like the feeling of the song, but there are parts where the singer just sounds too foolish.
pretty sweet
