IRON MASK
BLACK AS DEATH
AFM

Iron Mask is a Belgian band with a constantly shifting lineup and a bombastic 13-track album entitled BLACK AS DEATH. Featuring an abundance of power metal aspects from histrionic vocals (courtesy of former Yngwie Malmsteen throat Mark Boals) and grandiose arrangements (“Genghis Khan”) to keyboard-led melodies (“The Absence”), prerequisite power balladeering (“Magic Sky Requiem”) and gallant gallops (“Evil Strikes in Silence”), Iron Mask covers a lot of ground when presenting their rousing metal assault. Staying within the power and classic metal parameters with a hearty helping of Dio and Blind Guardian guiding their mission through the metal realm, Iron Mask balance out power, precision, and pomp to comprise a lengthy power metal affair worth spins for the ardent followers. -Mike SOS
