Iron Angel is one of the true cult legends of the German speed metal genre. Formed in the Hamburg-area back in 1980 and known for two classic eighties metal album Hellish Crossfire from 1985 and Winds Of War from 1986 (which featured a guest appearance from Ritchie Blackmore‘s son Jurgen on guitar) and a reputation as a staggering live band.
The band has toured Germany with King Diamond and in recent years they have shown that they are still a live band to be reckoned with at festivals like Metal Magic in 2016 and earlier this year at the Headbanger’s Open Air in Germany. The band also recently toured South America with big success.
Now the time has finally come for the long awaited come-back album from the band. The first studio album in over 30 years, Hellbound will be released as a big priority on the 4th of May 2018. The album will be released worldwide through Scandinavia’s premiere metal-rock label Mighty Music.
Iron Angel are currently booking summer festivals and European tour for the Autumn of 2018.
