Heavy News by Katha
Let me give you a first impression of IRONSTONE, a young progressive metal band from Bendigo, Australia. Influenced by a range of genres, their music is heavy and percussive, with atmospheric layers and catchy choruses. It features the duality of clean and distorted vocals, djent driven riffs and breakdowns, what makes the result contemporary, melodic and hard hitting.
Here we go with their video for Bound. Crank it up!
Liked what you heard? Then you might be pleased that these guys are gonna release their debut EP on May 29th. First details have been revealed recently and can be seen below.
The band states: “We are thrilled to present our debut EP ‘Prophecy’ to the world. This collection of songs covers a broad range of feelings, from heavy and serious subject matter through to the quirky and light hearted. Being a first release for us and having evolved so much in the last few years, we feel especially philosophical about our direction as a band and our path as young adults. ‘Prophecy’ is about acknowledging the overwhelming doubt of what the future holds and casting that aside in order to take control of our own reality. It flows and integrates from hopelessness to empowerment, from caution to impulsivity and encourages a journey of self-discovery that is vaguely familiar yet somehow completely new.“
To help fund the EP release, Ironstone have launched a crowd funding campaign with Pozible, but this isn’t about asking for hand outs. It’s actually a great opportunity to preorder digital downloads, signed CDs, shirts and other cool merch. Plus there are some more personalized rewards that you couldn’t get anywhere else. Check it out.
