Iron Savior mainman Piet Sielck posted an update on the upcoming new Iron Savior release. The as of yet untitled album is the follow up to the 2011 LP "The Landing" (see review here, which is scheduled for release on February 28, 2014.
The update reads: "Hey Folks, Hope you are all well. We are on the final approach finishing the new album scheduled for Feb 28th 2014. The drum recordings went really smooth. Thomas did a great job again and his Premier Kit sounds so damned good again. Looks pretty much like a total sample free album again. Jan is laying down his bass tracks and I will get back to vocals and mixing right after finishing the mix of the new Stormwarrior album (which will be awesome). We also did a nice fotosession for the album artwork while Felipe is working at full throttle on the artwork. Final delivery dead line for the audio master is Dec 18th. We also managed to come up with some nice video shots which will be cut within the next 2 weeks. So stay tuned for a first little teaser song on YouTube."

Of all the reunions and reformations of bands over the past decade, from Carcass to Immortal, few have been as demanded or anticipated as highly as today's featured band. Although their break only lasted five years, fans of a four piece from Little Rock, Arkansas felt a signifficant void had been left by their absence, which was filled in 2008 and the news was broke that the world would see the return of Living Sacrifice. The band was formed in 1989 by bass player and vocalist Darren Johnson, guitarist Bruce Fitzhugh and drummer Lance Garvin, with Jason Truby joining the group as a second guitarist soon afterwards. The band took their name from the Biblical passage Romans 12:1 and from the outset aimed to promote their Christian beliefs, which was reflected in the title of their first demo, "Not Yielding to Ungodly." The demo proved popular in the metal underground and soon found its way to Believer members Kurt Bachman and Joey Daub, who helped get the band signed to R.E.X. Records, a label which specialized in Christian metal artists. The band recorded their self-titled full length debut, which was released in 1991 and featured a more thrash metal orientated approach than their later work, earning them comparisons to other popular thrash acts such as Slayer.
Although their first record was received very favourably by metal fans, Christian or not, the band decided to drop the style and move towards the down tuned death metal genre that had been increasing in popularity thanks to such artists as Obituary and Morbid Angel. Their first foray into this tone came in 1992 with their sophomore effort, "Nonexistent," which the band see as something as a disappointment, expressing their dissatisfaction with the work of the producer, although it is still thought highly of by their fanbase. They then sought to combine the two styles they had previously exhibited, which culminated in their third album, "Inhabit," which was something of a return to their thrash sound, owing to the vocal methods employed by Johnson, but musically carried on in the vein of death metal, resulting in what is generally considered the group’s heaviest work to date. It was met with mixed to positive reviews but the band were soon dealt a blow when R.E.X. Records announced that they had gone bankrupt, leaving them without a label for a time, before they eventually signed with Solid State Records, who they trusted to help broaden their audience. More...
