Belfast band, The Irontown Diehards, deliver this self-titled debut album, a hi-octane rock riff-fest set for release on May 27th.
Citing Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry and Bon Jovi as influences, The Irontown Diehards are a band that hard rock enthusiasts worldwide need in their iTunes libraries. Making up their sound are belting vocal hooks, speeding rhythms and headbanging riffs that’ll leave your neck toned.
As described by Belfast Metalheads Reunited: ‘they have combined the essential elements to forge a fierce rock sound that is delivered as if they wield a battleaxe’.
A formidable live act, the band match their lively sound with a distinctive image, dressing unconventionally in Victorian worker garb as if they just so happened to stumble out of a time machine into the 21st Century and discover electric guitars. All the members have previously played in top Northern Ireland rock and metal bands including Last Known Addiction, Almighty Fallen, Stormzone, Warcrux and Dead Zebra. Their collective musical experience shows, both in their musicianship and their performance.
‘Fly High’ is the lead single, a soaring ballad with an explosive chorus. It features a cracking guitar solo and culminates into a mighty and epic crescendo.
