“Iron Speaks” has become known as the ‘lost’ Tunnels Of Āh album since it was abandoned as the fifth album release due to it sounding ‘unengaged’ to writer Stephen Āh Burroughs. Until now that is. Dense informs us that after reworking the original material, “Iron Speaks” emerges as a rediscovered official sixth album release.
The material itself on this album deals with the transitional stages of life and death. The title, “Iron Speaks”, is a reference to the chapter in the Koran which states that iron emerges from the heavens as a gift to mankind.
The release is out on the Italian label Hypershape Records and comes in a limited metal box.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
