Iron Mask: Shadow of the Red Baron

Melodic/Power Metal
Rating: 4.75/5.0

Four your seems too long to wait for another effort from Dushan Petrossi's Iron Mask. It was worth the wait as Shadow of the Red Baron is welcome and entertaining accomplishment of melodic heavy metal from this virtuoso guitarist and the band. Petrossi stated that extra effort was given to song composition 'where the excellent musicianship only lift(s) the music to an even higher level.' The opening title track, with its depth arrangement and breadth artist participation, confirms that Petrossi and Iron Mask have fulfilled their goals. More apparent across Shadow of the Red Baron is the immense care given to combining power, heaviness, and melody, a combination lost on many modern metal bands. Forever in the Dark, Resurrection, and Universe combine the elements with efficient effect and epic results. Surprisingly, Petrossi delivers with more melody, inspiration, and precision than the usual shredder grandstanding more common with a band centered upon a guitarist. In other words, Petrossi's succeeds at being band leader and team player rather than some guitar prima donna. As a result, and in toto, Shadow of the Red Baron is an exceptional melodic heavy metal accomplishment of the band Iron Mask where every player excels in creating epic songs of depth and creativity. Recommended.
