Among The Dead, the 8th studio album from the Danish Power Metal outfit Iron Fire, starts out strong but never quite reaches the high level of metal potency found in the band’s earlier albums. Iron Fire seems to have loosened its grip on their catchy choruses and memorable melodies in favor of a more aggressive, modern approach, most notably in the drumming and vocal delivery.

Fans of Iced Earth and the later Symphony X albums may enjoy the new direction, and while there are some strong tracks, such as “The Last Survivor”, overall it’s doubtful that Among The Dead will go down in history as Iron Fire’s finest effort.

Songs from this new release will be featured at 6:00/18:00 CET & Midnight/Noon EST on the day indicated.
