Full Album Stream: Iron Curtain – ‘Savage Dawn’

We don’t realistically know if the “Savage Dawn” referenced here by Spanish speed metal outfit, Iron Curtain, is a really aggressive ex-girlfriend or, like, an especially unpleasant morning with a bad hangover. Could be both. Boy, that would suck. But, look, what we do know is that these Spanish thrashers—Mike Leprosy (vocals/guitars), Joserra (bass), Moroco (drums), Juanma Fernández (guitars)—love fast-n-loose heavy metal just as much as (we presume) you do. I mean, if the dirtiest parts of the NWOBHM were distilled down to a handful of killer riffs, a kick-ass drummer and a vocalist with a limited vocal range, it’d sound just like this.

Savage Dawn was mixed by Javi Félez (Teitanblood, Graveyard) and mastered by Jaime Gómez Arellano (Ghost, Satan, Mayhem) and is set for release on vinyl, CD and digitally on February 23 via Dying Victims Productions. You can place you preorder here or here.

Here’s what the band had to say about it all:

“We are Iron Curtain, heavy/speed metal bandoleros from Spain, and this is our best record to date! It is a deadly combination of fast and heavy songs, nailed with a powerful and organic production by Javi Felez. True and diehard metal maniacs, this is for you! All killer, no filler!”
