Ironbound – Serpent’s Kiss (Ossuary Records)

Poland’s classic heavy metallers Ironbound return next week with their second full length, three years after the very good debut The Lightbringer. The band’s style is immediately reminiscent of nineties-era Iron Maiden and, you guessed it, the solo works of Blaze Bayley. It is indeed meat and potatoes heavy metal, rarely experimenting, guaranteed to please..
