IRONFIST
Dragonlore
2002
A 4 tracked demo including an intro performed by this interesting band. Heavy metal is the style but is a bit different from what I thought after reading about them in Dark Legions. A bit original I guess like a fast version of Black Sabbath. Besides the Sabbath-styled vocal, Alhazred also puts in his growls and shouts in the songs. I had to listen to this for a couple of times before my system could adapt to "Dragonlore". The demo comes with a xerox cover (the printing could have been made better).

IRONFIST
Dragonlore
2002
This is one Power metal band from Singapore.. nothing powerful though. Real crappy weak vocals and also "music" (if this is music). They seem to be obssessed by some dragon and that too a red one I guess. Deep RED logo and red cd cover that just adds to the anger towards this band. The language in the CDr inlay is way heavy email=online invocation and shit like that. My advice to them is that instead of paying attention to these things they better improve their style or better still switch to pop music. I couldn't even listen to the whole CDr at one sitting, its just so irritating to hear the vocals and to the crappy 2 paisa worth music. After 22 mins of suffering listening to their boring 5 tracks all I can say is that they really should spend some more time in the music school and spare the pain of listening to them.

Tyrannikal Adversaries
2003
"Sixxx sick tracks of pure sex-metal onslaught up your fucking ass!!!", the flyers says. This cdr-EP contains 6 tracks and now they are totally different. Forget what I said about "Dragonlore", "Tyrannikal Adversaries" is a total thrashing madness! The songs, the sound is hundred times better than "Dragonlore". Alhazred now sings fully in his evil vocals. I can't read clearly the tracks title due to the type of font used so I don't want to write them here. The first track is a dark intro, which I think it is not necessary to make it as a separate track (only 30+ seconds long). The booklet stated that sexy Elsa of Suicide Solution contributes her voice in the third track and I hope the voice on the intro of the song is hers too. The fourth track is a dark track The EP comes with colored booklet and is hand-numbered (I am the proud owner of #035). If the X-ray-like front cover disappoints you, the actual, clear version is on the tray cover.
