Following the release of their latest, much acclaimed studio album Firestar, German power metal force Iron Savior has unleashed a furious new single entitled “Raising Hell”.

“Firestar” was released in October 2023 via AFM Records.

“Those were the days
When Metal came out ways
Making me stronger
Day by day
We’ve been the warriors
To rule the gleaming city lights
Metal on our minds
We’re raising hell.”

The band’s latest album, “Firestar”, features a wide range of influences from hard rock to pop, all calibrated to heavy metal trademark the band is known and loved for. But sometimes pure coincidence or seemingly inconspicuous little details can turn a very good album into an outstanding release. In the case of “Firestar”, it has come as a real surprise even for Sielck that the new songs surpass the material of the impressive 2020-album “Skycrest”. In fact, the cornerstones of the current offering were already set and pointed to a successful production within the tried and tested framework, when all of a sudden everything turned out rather differently: “Just before the recordings were finalised, I was inspired by the muse, totally of the blue. I wrote two more songs out of nowhere and changed a third one on the spur of the moment. And suddenly, ‘Firestar’ turned into an even better record,” Sielck recently said, admitting that this unexpected creative surge “triggered great emotions” in him.

Iron Savior have again come up with an exceptional studio album in “Firestar”, enhanced by Felipe Machado Franco’s impressive cover artwork. The cherry on the cake is the powerful production courtesy of Hamburg’s Powerhouse Studio, including intelligently positioned keyboard parts and the anthemic background choirs, supported by Sielck’s 17-year-old daughter Frida and her boyfriend. As international press critics and increasing numbers have proved, “Firestar” turned into a bonfire in many respects!
