The Sign Records proudly presents “Blue Haze” – the third album of Swedish rockers IRON LAMB!
IRON LAMB have raised the bar and the production provides a timeless sound that gives space for songwriting and craftsmanship. The weighed down and dark sense in the music stand next to a grim sense of humor.
“Blue Haze” is a new chapter where the band is not rewriting history. It’s the start of something new. On “Blue Haze” there is an overflow of impressions at the same time as there are no compromises with tremendous force that the band brings to the live stage. There are multiple dimensions and layers on the new album. An album that holds a dark and apocalyptic depiction.
IRON LAMB have turned the fusion of metal and punk into their own style of Rock and/or Roll. Iron Lamb’s foundation is still there with an ”up yours” style of pumped classic rock at the same time as influences get much wider on “Blue Haze.” On tracks as “Iron and the Lamb” and “Into the Night” the band finds themselves nearer a more epic sound. Tracks as “The Hunt” or “Bound by Gravity” is a pure unleash or raw rock n roll energy. The opening track “Apocalypse Express” is perhaps the best example of how the band combines these opposite into their third, powerful and dynamic album.
“Blue Haze” was recorded and mixed by Martin ’Konie’ Ehrencrona (producer of In Solitude, Viagra Boys, and Tribulation) in Studio Cobra. Andreas Sandberg (Negative Self) plays keyboard and mellotron on the song “Into the Night.” ’Koine’ plays keyboard and piano on “Erase/Rewind” and Hammond organ on “Dead Beat.”
IRON LAMB have been around for ten years and released two albums “The Original Sin” (2011/Pulverised Records) and “Fools Gold” (2015/High Roller Records). Except for the dark vibe over “Blue Haze,” there are few resemblances to bands as Repugnant, Martyrdöd, Dismember, Diskonto, General Surgery, Tyrant, and Insision where the members have served time.
