Just when you thought the "Iron Something" band name generator has run out of names, here comes Iron Curtain from Spain. Truth be told, this band has been around since 2007 and Danger Zone is their fourth album, though the first one I've crossed paths with. This formula on Danger Zone is a pretty simple mix of pioneers like Motorhead and Thin Lizzy and early NWOBHM bands like Tygers of Pan Tang and Saxon. The first two songs illustrate this quite nicely as "Wildlife" roars down the tracks like a double-kick locomotive with the engineer screaming at the top of his gravelly voice while "Stormbound" takes a mid-tempo approach with tighter writing in a more hard rock style. The rest of the songs are not revelations but do serve the purpose of rocking hard quite nicely so while you aren't necessarily going to be singing them after the album is over, you may find yourself reaching for the air guitar. If you need some simple, solid hard rock/heavy metal, Iron Curtain have you covered.
