The 80s Live Again With The Traditional Styled Canadian Heavy Metal
Out Now New Album “On The Hunt”
Inspired by legendary pillars of heavy metal such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, The Scorpions, and Rush, IRON KINGDOM is well known for their energetic and electrifying stage presence, as well as intricate musical melodies that bring listeners back to a time when the genre was in its prime.
This past October, the band unleashed their latest album “On The Hunt” along with kicking off a two-month North American tour in support of the full-length. Now recharged after a short break home in Vancouver, BC, the full force DIY Canadian heavy metallers announce they will be crossing the Atlantic for six-show dates in Europe that include performing at Full Metal Osthessen Festival (DE) and Swordbrothers Metal Fest (DE) plus a show date supporting Vicious Rumors (all dates listed below).
Vocalist/guitarist Chris Osterman adds: “After our last tour of Europe in 2014, we knew that they held heavy metal very close to their hearts, and we knew it was something very special for the genre. Europe was always on our minds, it was always a conversation at rehearsals and band meetings, but for one reason or another, we kept having to delay our return. You know it really is quite strange to think it’s been six whole years since we performed there, We’re so honoured and excited to have been invited back, and we are so thankful to say that now the wait is over, it’s truly been far too long! We will see you soon!! But until then, just remember to Keep It Steel!”
IRON KINGDOM‘s latest album “On The Hunt” offers up nine traditional heavy metal influenced tracks that translate well into a live setting, which is paramount for the band who take great pride in their live show. Fans of the bands such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Queensryche, and Helloween will revel in IRON KINGDOM.
