Review: The Iron Son - Enemy

Following his fifteen year career as the founder and vocalist of hardcore metal heroes, Bleeding Through, Brandan Schieppati has returned with his new project - The Iron Son.
Schieppati teamed up with long time friend and producer, Mick Kenney - the polymath mind behind Anaal Nathrakh - to create a sound that encapsulates his refreshed vision. The Iron Son has also provided for an opportunity for Schieppati to have old friends and few of his favorite musicians contribute, further diversifying the sound.

On this album you can hear a lot of aggressive elements, all the instruments together make for a good coherent sound, that make the aggression stronger, supporting the honest and pissed off lyrics in a way that make you “feel” the song. What really stands out is the fast blasting beats of the drums on every song, while still being alternated by moderately paced on parts where needed. The guitar is also something to talk about, it has some dissonant riffs with progressive rhythm parts to catchy riffs and exemplary lead work found in the solos, everything gives a solid backbone for the vocals and lyrics. While everything forms a whole, you can still hear some diversity in the clean vocals and grunts. The guest appearances also make this an interesting album to listen to. If you can keep your legs still while listening to this album, you have to listen to it again.

Special Guests:
Chris Cerulli (Motionless In White) features on Unleash Hell
Marta (Bleeding Through) additional keyboard tracks on Moral Messiah
Shannon Lucas (ex. The Black Dahlia Murder) drums on Worth Less, Colder, Unleash Hell, Blood

The Iron Son's debut album Enemy will be released on December 1, via Pvre Evil Records. Pvre Evil Records was set up in 2015 by Schieppati, Kenney and mutual friend CJ Ray, in order to give themselves complete creative control over their artistic output.
