Debut LP "Swedish Iron" Announced By Tungsten Axe

Swedish traditional metal act Tungsten Axe will release the debut LP "Swedish Iron" on June 28th via Iron Shield Records with distribution through Pure Steel Records. The band was founded in 2009 and released a self-titled demo in 2011. However, one day eight tracks were added to the Tungsten Axe songbook and the visions of a full length started to take form.

A friend of the band who is heavily into analogue recording technique offered studio time and on November 16, 2012 the band recorded what would become "Swedish Iron." The 4-track promo demo with outtakes from the recording session was sent out to appropriate labels and bookers. The album was intended as a vinyl LP as the first priority, but strong support from Iron Shield Records came with an offer to release it as a CD, which fueled the band. According to the press release the album is a "rough, honest and unedited live recording with only vocals, guitar solos and sound effects added on."

The track listing for "Swedish Iron" is:

1. Prelude
2. Star of Mount Paekdu
3. Heavy Metal
4. Divided
5. Devil's Children
6. Swedish Iron
7. The Steel is Sacred
8. Elna K. Eriksson
9. Times
