Genre/Influences: Martial, industrial.
Content: I.R.O.N. is a new project and side-project of Legionarii. Both projects share similar martial influences, but I.R.O.N. has been introduced as more industrial-like. Both projects still share certain controversy when it comes to concept and inspiration, but Legionarii is more ‘spiritual’-like.
“Evolving” indeed sounds martial and more into industrial realms. Typical epic passages and orchestral arrangements can be found throughout the entire album. Some of the industrial drums patterns even evoke some old industrial pioneers from the 80s, which sounds as a reference. The rhythms are a quite important and essential item inside the work.
This opus progressively grows until it reaches a true climax on “Holy Armor”. We here are joining a poignant composition lead by an epic passage mixed with icy electro sounds.
Conclusion: I.R.O.N. sounds much more than a simply a side-project, revealing a huge potential that will appeal for lovers of martial- and industrial music.
Best songs: “Holy Armor”, “United Machines”, “Assemblage / Convoys”.
