"Made of Iron" (Sonic Age; 2004)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Made of Iron's self-titled CD is pure heavy metal in the vein of Iron Maiden and Saxon with a little Judas Priest thrown in here and there for good measure.

The nine track CD is loaded with chunky riffs, blistering leads and a vocalist who strives to sound like the classic voices of metal (i.e., Rob Halford and especially Bruce Dickinson, etc.) and only just misses.

There's nothing new or original here but you'd be pissed off if there was. Made of Iron is unapologetically the very cliché of what heavy metal sounds like, and they're probably thrilled to death to be just that.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
