Ironsword - Overlords of Chaos

Genre: Heavy Metal
Country: Portugal
Year: 2004
Label: The Miskatonic Foundation

Continuing with the previous post's Adjectivesword theme, I bring you the mighty Ironsword of Portugal. These guys grab you by the back of the head and slam your face through a wall of pure metal and make you enjoy every last second of it. Chunky, heavy old-school riffs, and throaty, barbaric vocals are the modus operandi here. This band obviously worships at the altar of Manilla Road in a BIG way (in fact, Mark the Shark actually does guest vocals on a couple of songs, which is incredibly fucking cool), and their lyrics make apparent their affinity for awesome topics (we're talking a massive overdose of Robert E. Howard, et al). This simply rules all-around.

For fans of Manilla Road, Omen, and Doomsword.
