Iron Angel - Streaming 'Sacred Slaughter' Single

After revealing details of the upcoming album Emerald Eyes, German speed metal veterans Iron Angel share a lyric video for the newly released song, ''Sacred Slaughter''. Emerald Eyes hits the stores on October 2, 2020.

"Sacred Slaughter" is everything you came to expect of the German metal gods and more. "Sacred Slaughter" was the first song I had written for the band (the first single "Sands of Time" had been the 3rd) and therefore it probably showcases best how I envisioned our development as a band", drummer Maximilian Behr states. "While it is undeniably a speed metal tune, the riffing is partly very thrashy, something that harkens back to our first album Hellish Crossfire, but at the same time, it has also gotten more complex and challenging and less "meat & potatoes"- like. It is definitely one of our fastest and most brutal songs from the album. The lyrics deal with one's inner struggle of belief and how it is exercised. A soul in search for solace and peace, equipped with the wisdom to tell that "hate only leads to more hate", looks at the events that shape our world these days (I wrote the song back in June 2018, but now it seems to be more relevant than ever) and realizes, that it might be forced to defend itself and therefore also exercise violence, although for self-defensive reasons and yet it's another drop of water, that keeps the big mill of conflict running. Deep $'!T for sure".''
