IRON ANGEL has inked a deal with Scandinavia’s premiere metal-rock label Mighty Music. The band’s new album, “Hellbound”, will be released on May 4, 2018.
IRON ANGEL is one of the true cult legends of the German speed metal genre. Formed in the Hamburg-area back in 1980 and known for two classic eighties metal album “Hellish Crossfire” from 1985 and “Winds Of War” from 1986 and a reputation as a staggering live band. The band has toured Germany with KING DIAMOND and in recent years has showed it is still a live band to reckon with at festivals like Metal Magic in 2016 and earlier this year at the Headbanger’s Open Air in Germany. The band also recently toured South America with big succes.
Now the time has finally come for the long awaited comeback album from the band — the first studio effort in over 30 years!
IRON ANGEL is currently booking summer festivals and a European tour for the autumn of 2018.
