Iron Savior reveal cover art for upcoming live DVD

April 9th, 2015


As posted by Piet on Fabebook:

“Today I have delivered the final audio mix down of our first live DVD ever!!! This is really exciting since we’ve never done this before smile emoticon. Again our friend Felipe Machado Franco did a killer artwork AND came up with the perfect title as well: LIVE AT THE FINAL FRONTIER

I know, I know there’s a Maiden album “the final frontier”… BUT we are doing this Sci-fi thing for such a long time, so this title is a must! Looking at the artwork I couldn’t think of anything more fitting smile emoticon. Also the final cut of all the video material is ready and – wow – I am absolutely happy. We look pretty cool, haha!

Check out the artwork and stay tuned for more soon!

All the best,

Iron Savior - Megatropolis

Iron Savior – Megatropolis

Iron Savior frontman/founder Piet Sielck has checked in with the following announcement regarding the band’s 2007 album, Megatropolis:

“Big news! According to AFM all Megatropolis CDs are sold out. Therefore the album will be re-released with a new mix and a lot of re-recordings! Being unhappy with the album for a long time, I am absolutely happy to get a chance to correct my errors. The new mix will carry all Iron Savior trademarks such as big choir backings and lots of multi timbral vocals. I left all these goodies out at the time to make the album more distinguishable from my former second band Savage Circus… a fatal error which I finally can correct now. ‘Omega Man’ and ‘Megatropolis’ are done already sounding… fat! Folks, you have no idea how happy I am about this!”

Megatropolis was released in 2007 via Dockyard 1, a now defunct label co-owned by Sielck. The tracklist is as follows:

“Running Riot”
“The Omega Man”
“Cybernetic Queen”
“Cyber Hero”
“A Tale from Down Below”
“Still I Believe”
“Farewell and Good Bye”

Iron Savior

Iron Savior

“Yeah! All lyrics done and only one more vocal to record. Mixing makes descend progress. Friday it’s time for the bakings, some solo voices of Jan and all his second harmonies. Looking so damned forward to finish and listen to all songs with my favorite headphones and a beer!!”

“Hey Folks, heavy mixing is happening at good old powerhouse putting all the work of the past months together into single stereo files. Backing vocals and choirs still need to be recorded and assembled in, but it sounds already damned good \m/. Can’t wait myself to listen to the finished album with all the songs in the optimal running order and with full sound.  Ok, back to work cause time’s running shorter than you think
Best, Piet & the boys”

Jalometalli 2012 – Oulu Finland

October 27th, 2012


The mighty Jalometalli Open Air Metal festival strikes back once again with a killer line-up to maintain its metallic lofty status on the Finnish festival map. The festival is known for relying on an old school metal approach offering traditional metal to extreme metal with classic metal to the extreme black metal. The festival also paid attention to young rising and local bands who played the small third stage. That was unique and thankfully most of the bands sounded killer. The Metal Rules team hit the grounds of Oulu to see several absolutely killer bands. The whole Jalometalli as a festival is so unique and one of kind that anyone reading this article should take a glance at the offering of the festival. Here is a brief article on the fest.

Iron Savior – Piet Sielck

September 6th, 2005

Piet Sielck of Iron Savior
Interviewed by EvilG in Feb. 2001

I was very excited to be given the opportunity to interview the true brain behind Germany’s sci-fi power metallers, IRON SAVIOR – Piet Sielck. Piet became a known name in the metal arena as a producer and engineer, working with bands like Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, Saxon and Grave Digger. After a few years in this role the desire grew to form a band of his own…and thus began the saga of the Iron Savior. Since their first self titled release in 1997 the band have recorded three CD Singles / EP’s and two other full-length albums. Their most recent, and arguably their strongest work to date is the magnificent album DARK ASSAULT. Released in Jan 2001, this CD continues the tale of the Iron Savior and has proven to me that this band is no mere side project but an entity that stands on it’s own as one of the finest true metal bands on the scene today.

Kai Hansen Interview
Interviewed May 19, 1999 by EvilG

Kai HansenLet me tell ya it’s not everyday that I get to chat with someone who I’m such a fan of. This interview was rescheduled about two or three times but thanks to Steve (Noise) it finally happened on May 19th, 1999.

For those unfortunate beings who have no clue as to who Kai Hansen is, well hang your head in shame. I won’t bother giving you a history lesson here. If you’re interested, there are a number of places on the web where you can read about Kai’s history with Helloween, Gamma Ray and Iron Savior.
