Canadian metal outfit Iron Kingdom are gearing up for their fifth full-length effort, The Blood Of Creation, out November 4th. Today (20th), these 80s throwbackers meet modern progressive riffs have teamed up with Metal Insider to premiere a video for their latest single, “Queen Of The Crystal Throne.” Musically, the group is influenced by fantasy mixed with some added darker emotions following the covid-19 pandemic, making it an interesting take on the band’s continuous evolution.


The band explains:

“This powerful mid-tempo banger was written about a dark seductress: cold, aloof, and dangerous, you show interest at your own peril. We wanted a straight rocker tune, and that’s exactly what we did here with ‘Queen Of The Crystal Throne’, with hints of early Queensrÿche or Accept, the riffs have some balls, but they also keep a cool pace, it’s really just a super fun tune.”
