Iron Thrones is an epic/progressive melodic metal band from Minneapolis, MN. Previously performing and releasing an EP under the name “Everest”, their debut album, “Visions of Light” was self-released on November 21st, 2008 as a free digital download on their website, and as a limited CD release.
Soon after its release, “Visions of Light” garnered many positive reviews on underground websites, leading to a nation-wide re-release in early 2009 by Tribunal Records. In Fall 2009, the band began the process of writing their follow-up album. In Spring 2010, just before they were to enter the studio, Iron Thrones was announced as the winner of the Scion “No Label Needed” Contest. They were flown out to the East Coast to record what would end up being a 6-song, 40+ minute EP with Will Putney of The Machine Shop. In addition, they received mentoring from several high-profile musicians and PR/music-related companies, with the intention of giving the band everything they’d need in order to succeed as an independent band. As of early/mid 2010, details about the new record have yet to be announced.
Their sound is primarily influenced by other progressive metal acts such as Opeth, Burst, Mastodon, and Between the Buried and Me, as well as post-metal such as Cult of Luna and rock bands such as Cave In and Thrice.
