Kelly Sundown Carpenter Named New Iron Mask Singer

Iron Mask named its new vocalist in Kelly Sundown Carpenter, who recently filled in for the vacant Firewind vocal position after the departure of Apollo Papathanasio in 2013. Carpenter is also the vocalist for Darkology and Adagio. Carpenter replaces long time vocalist Mark Boals (Ring of Fire/ex-Yngwie Malmsteen) and will begin work on the band's follow up to the 2013 release "Fifth Son of Winterdoom," which is available now through AFM Records.

The announcement came via band leader Dushan Petrossi, who stated: "We are happy to announce our new band-brother, Kelly Sundown (ex-Firewind & Darkology), as permanent vocalist of Iron Mask. You will find him from now on on every gig with us and on the following CD's. After a long search for the perfect person, we finally have the amazing vocalist with matching personality closeby in Belgium.
We are all ready and looking forward to tour the world and rock the night away. Thanks again to all the singers for the many auditions that I've received and I wish you all the very best in your further career."

Carpenter also made a statement: "I've decided to join forces with Iron Mask. I grew up listening to Neo-Classical metal so this should be great fun! Mark Boals -who sang on my favorite Yngwie Malmsteen album "Trilogy" was the vocalist on Iron Mask's last album...so it all makes very good sense
Here's a pic of Vassili, myself and Dushan Petrossi at the Citadelle in Namur last night. It doesn't get more metal then that... We lifted a pint or two in the promise of bringing you something special!" More...

Iron Mask Seeking New Singer

Iron Mask band leader & guitarist Dushabn Petrossi has issued the following announcement about seeking a new vocalist:

"I've come a long way since Iron Mask was founded, but the love for the music and band will never fade. The fifth album has been released, again by AFM Record label and received super reviews and a lot of promotion. For the last two albums Mark Boals and me worked together, and he gave me the vocals I heard in my head, whilst composing the songs.

"Of course it's with pain in my heart, but times have changed and touring will always be a must for a band. Since the vibe of a live show is very important for us as musicians, for the band itself and also for the many fans asking us to come play in their area, I feel pressured to follow the reality. Times has changed, budgets have changed and we have to adapt, Iron Mask is not a studio project and we don't want to make it that.

"Although Mark his voice fits perfect with my vision for Iron Mask, we have a logistical problem that obligates me to search for a different singer, close by. Therefor, I will keep online auditions for a new male singer for Iron Mask.

"The most important is, next to vocal capability and living close by Belgium of course, that the heart for this genre is there, the feeling for brotherhood in the band and the pride as a member of Iron Mask. This is something I have, just as Ramy and Vassili… More...
