Power metal masters Iron Savior return with 10 new tracks filled with fast riffs, blazing solos, lots of hooks and great vocals in a release sure to please existing fans and win over new ones.

Formed in 1996 by Piet Sielck  and other ex-Helloween members, Iron Savior has released now 13 albums of material including a live CD/DVD and a re-recorded best of album, Reforged –Riding the Fire (2017).  As a result, the band needs little introduction to those familiar with European metal or power metal in general.  Over the years, the lineup around Piet has changed, but he has continually found members with exquisite skills and ability to complement his style and vision.   Throughout their history, the band has combined science fiction with their distinctive take on the the NWOBHM sound and Kill or Get Killed is no exception with the somewhat darker concept being inspired by Piet’s reading of the book “The Star of Pandora” which is about the destruction of humanity by an alien civilization.  Once again, the overall sound was polished to a metal perfection by Piet at his Powerhouse Studios.

Kill or Get Killed wastes no time blasting right into the first track and setting the tone for the rest of the album. Jan S. Eckert on bass and Patrick Klose on drums provide a solid rhythm at a torrid pace while the guitars of Piet and Piesel Küstner sound out some great riffs and leads.  Continue reading »

Late last month, Tourniquet launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund “Vanishing Lessons – 25th Anniversary Vinyl. The set target of €3,455 has been achieved, at the moment of writing even € 6.185, with still 7 days to go …. Kirkpatrick says: .

STRETCH GOAL ADDED! – With 7 days to go, thanks to all of you – we’re waay over the initial goal! So we came up with a cool idea for a “stretch goal”: A flash drive filled with Vanishing Lessons era photos: in studio, tour photos, concert fliers, promo stuff – whatever we dig up! This will be a great look at what went down during that time. Many of these photos have never been released to the public. If we reach the stretch goal of $8,000, EVERY BACKER will get a flash drive, preloaded with the photos!!
