IRON MASK – Master of Masters (2020)

Founded almost 20 years ago IRON MASK, named after the mysterious prisoner from Alexandre Dumas’ novel “The Man in the Iron Mask”, have matured into a sovereign band and a big-shot in the international metal scene. The new album “Master Of Masters” introduces Mike Slembrouck on vocals, who is a perfect fit for the band, shining on all 12 tracks.
As the trend in recent years, power metal bands turned much more accessible, melodic (a good thing if you ask me) and IRON MASK isn’t the exception. Tracks like ‘Revolution Rise’ are straight melodic hard rock, without losing the band’s ADN inspired by the likes of DIO, MALMSTEEN, etc.
