March 24th, 2023, will see death metal force Discreation release their darkest album to date. “Iron Times” was created during the Corona pandemic and under the impression of a then impending, now ongoing war in the middle of Europe, the band’s sixth full-length was inspired by the countless wars and turning points in history.
“Iron Times” is also a turning point for the band, because with Marc Grewe (ex-Morgoth) Discreation welcomed a true death metal legend to their ranks. His distinctive voice perfectly matches with the new songs, while blast attacks, tank grooves, bleak melodies and grim determination mark Discreation’s own variant of German death metal.
Give ear, as today, the five-piece premiered a music video for the album title track, “Iron Times” – watch the video below.
Guitarist Sebastian Schilling comments: “‘Iron Times’ gets straight to the point and perfectly captures the dark mood of our new album. At the same time, ‘Iron Times’ was the first song written after a break from songwriting and set the direction for the new record. So it comes full circle, that ‘Iron Times’ is now also the first new song that we like to share with you today”.
“Iron Times” was produced by Alexander Krull, who gave the album an earthy yet powerful sound. The goal was to capture the band’s raw live sound and add a contemporary punch. As the first single proves, mission accomplished!
Slated for a release on March 24th, 2023, via Massacre Records, “Iron Times” is available for pre-order here.
