Iron Magazine – Queen of Hell
Band: Iron Magazine
Album: Queen of Hell
Country of Origin: Canada/Finland
Genre: Heavy metal
Release Date: March 17th, 2017
Label: Ektro Records
Iron Magazine is a member mashup featuring Danko Jones and John Calabrese from Danko Jones and Jussi Lehtisalo and Tomi Leppänen from Circle. The foursome give off a classic heavy metal vibe. Queen of Hell sounds like it’s fresh off the time machine from the 1980s.
The guys from Circle give the instrumentals an almost psychedelic feel. The vocals gave me an Ozzy/Dio feel. They’re catchy tunes; definitely something to groove too. Queen of Hell isn’t like your generic debut album. It’s peppy metal.
Queen of Hell sees its international release March 17 on 12” vinyl.
Favorite Track: I’m really partial to the titular track “Queen of Hell”.
