Teaser Clip For New Album "Inferno" Posted By Iron Fire

Danish metal act Iron Fire posted a teaser clip from the upcoming release entitled "Inferno." The album is the follow up to the 2012 release "Voyage of the Damned" (see review here) and is expected for release in 2014 (no date confirmed). The band will begin recording the album in middle part of this month.

The band will see two lineup changes - the first is the departure of long time bassist Martin Lund and the second is the departure of drummer Fritz Wagner. Bass duties will be handled by vocalist Martin Steene and the drum duties to new member Sigurd Jøhnk-Jensen (Caro).

The band described some preliminary information on the album: "Happy new year Iron Heads, good news our break is over and we start to record the follow up to 'Voyage of the Damned' in about 2 weeks.

"We have chosen to stick to our guns and do what we feel is the right way for Iron Fire to go. The new album will be called 'Inferno' and it will be a theme album based on the classic book The Divine Comedy aka Dantes Inferno.

"Its gonna be our most dark and heavy album to date, and we are gonna showcase a lot of new elements to our sound. We are still and will always be Power Metal but that will not keep us from evolving our music. Iron Fire music comes from the heart and not what any record label or trend dictates.

"2 years in the rehearsal room has taken its toll on the band resulting in the departure of Martin Lund. We thank him for 8 great years and wish him the best of luck for the future. The bass will from now on be handled by Martin Steene: 'Ive been playing bass for many years and being the soul song writer of Iron Fire i see this as the best solution, now i actually get to play and scream my own songs at the same time.'

"We will continue as a 3 piece and work our asses of in 2014 to create the ultimate Power Metal assault for all of you.

"Its a new year, a new chapter and there is a new beast on the way."
