Rating: 8,5/10


‘Shadow Of The Red Baron’ is the third album by Belgian based band Iron Mask and was first released in 2010 and this re-release has been expanded with two re-recordings with current singer Artur Almeida of two later Iron Mask songs: ‘Fifth Son Of Winterdoom’ which was the title track of their fifth and latest album and ‘The Picture Of Dorian Gray’ is from the same album. The melodic power metal and ‘classic’ hard rock on this album stands the test of time and is still a joy to listen to. In January 2016 the band is on tour with Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody and this album is the perfect companion to promote the tour. Dushan is a master on the guitar and the band plays his brilliant arrangements with great fluidity. New singer Artur Almeira sounds a bit like Bruce Dickinson and does a good job on the bonus tracks.


‘Shadow Of The Red Baron’ is het derde album van de in België gevestigde groep Iron Mask. De plaat werd uitgebracht in 2010 en deze heruitgave werd uitgebreid met twee extra tracks die heropnames zijn met de huidige zanger van twee nummers van hun tot nu toe laatste album, zijnde het titelnummer ‘Fifth Son Of Winterdoom’ en ‘The Picture Of Dorian Gray’. De melodieuze power metal en klassieke hardrock op deze plaat klinkt vijf jaar later nog ever sterk en fris. In januari 2016 is de groep op tournee met Luce Turilli’s Rhapsody en dit is het perfecte visitekaartje om af te leveren naar aanleiding van deze tour. Dushan is een meesterlijke gitarist en de band speelt zijn briljante arrangementen met verve. Nieuwe zanger Artur Almeira doet ons denken aan Bruce Dickinson en brengt het er goed van af in de bonus nummers.
