Hard rock/heavy metal band Ironcore Resistance has a unique backstory, dating all the way back to 1968. It began with a few musicians coming together with lead singer David Willie to create a new musical release to the popular sounds of the time. After four years of performing live in clubs, the band was put on hiatus due to the untimely passing of founding member Joe Paul. After coming across an old photo of the band, Willie decided to resurrect Ironcore Resistance and they released their debut album "Join The Resistance" in 2011. Now on July 27th, the band releasee their new full-length studio album "For The Fallen."
The new ten-song release kicks things off with the hardcore, aggressive attack of "Live Like You're Dying" and the powerful shouts of the "Sons Of Chaos." The album continues with the intense delivery of "Drive" and the pounding rhythm of "Disease" as you'd never know the roots of this band were planted fifty years ago. Guest guitarist, Virus, lends a hand on the classic heavy metal sound of "Sanity Ends," before Ironcore Resistance close out their new album with the guitar driven "Halfway There" and the reckless energy of "Decide To Fight."
