IRON VOID “Excalibur”

(Shadow Kingdom Records)

Battle Helm Rating

A British doom metal band immediately brings to mind images of Black Sabbath in my mind, but not this time. This has a more epic feel than that and therefore brings me more along the lines of classic heavy metal done doom style. I know what bands this reminds me of, but I cannot think of their names. Not that it matters. It just is an annoying little feature in my brain. I am a real sucker for the more epic things in metal. I love bands that are grander than life in sound. And this has that feel to it. Almost like a battle call. The things you listen to as you march towards battle. This one turned out a really cool gem and one that I will return to often.
