Iron Command are a band from Columbia that plays a mixture of heavy, speed, and power metal and this is a review of their self titled 2014 album "Play It Loud".
A very old school speed metal sound starts off the album along with some powerful drumming and a few seconds female power metal vocals are added into the music and the bands musical style has a very 80's orientated sound and the stuff sounds like it could of easily been recorded and released during the time frame.
There is a very good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording and the solos and leads the band uses bring in an early 83 era thrash metal sound to the bands old school style of metal while also having some of the more melodic NWOBHM at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the songs stick to a raw, heavy, hard and aggressive musical direction throughout the recording and there is never a soft moment present anywhere on this recording.
Iron Command plays a style of heavy metal that is heavily rooted in the early 90's and they also bring in a lot of power and speed metal elements along with a touch of thrash to create a very true and pure form of heavy metal, the production sounds very old school yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover heavy metal, dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Iron Command are a very great sounding mixture of heavy, power, and speed metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Iron Command' "Power Abuse" "Persecution" and "Play It Loud". 8 out of 10.
