2023 Dissonance UK 

81 track, 6 disc box set from cult German power metal act Iron Savior.

• Featuring five full albums and one EP from the band’s prolific years on Noise Records, with multiple bonus tracks.

CD 1 features their full length self-titled debut studio album, originally released in 1997, the only release to feature Blind Guardian drummer Thomen Stauch. CD 2 features the lengthy EP ‘Interlude’, originally released in 1999 and CD 3 features the second full length album ‘Unification’, also from 1999.

CD 4 features the band’s third full length album ‘Dark Assault’, originally released in 2001, the last release to feature Helloween/Gamma Ray guitarist Kai Hansen. CD 5 features the band’s fourth full length album ‘Condition Red’, originally released in 2002 and CD 6 features the band’s fifth full length album, and final release for Noise Records, ‘Battering Ram’, released in 2004.

As far back as 1978, Piet Sielck formed Gentry In Hamburg with childhood friend Kai Hansen, eventually morphing into Second Hell, which also featured drummer Ingo Schwichtenberg and bassist Markus Grosskopf. The latter three, without Sielck, would go on to find massive global success as Helloween.

Fast forward to 1996, and Iron Savior took shape when Sielck re-joined forces with the by now ex-Helloween guitarist Kai Hansen, together with Blind Guardian drummer Thomen Stauch.
Sielck had also previously produced the debut record from Gamma Ray, the band Hansen formed after leaving Helloween in 1989.

Iron Savior based their albums around an elaborate science fiction story that evolved with each release. This box set is bolstered with the addition of eleven rare bonus tracks taken from various releases during the years 1997-2004, as well as detailed liner notes from respected German writer Lothar Hausfeld.

Often compared in style to the likes of Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, this box set contains no less than four Priest covers, as well as additional covers of songs by Black Sabbath, Nazareth, Helloween and Krokus, as well as Seal’s ‘Crazy’.
