VESPERIA, Canada’s epic metal quartet and recently crowned 2015 champions of Wacken Metal Battle Canada, have released the first a song titled ‘Iron Saga’ at a leading music publication, and is one of three tracks offered on their upcoming EP ‘The Iron Tempests’ is dropping on July 10th. The EP was co-produced with the effort of Ryan Bovaird, frontman of Canadian melodeath band Hallow’s Die. The EP artwork was also created by none other than VESPERIA‘s frontman Morgan Rider at his own White North Studios (http://whitenorthstudios.com).
“Iron Saga is about the forging of steel blades from the viewpoint of the steel itself as a sentient, blood-hungry presence. The lyrics talk about the steel coming to awareness while being shaped and it’s eagerness to leave the forge to see battle and taste blood. As the song progresses, the steel recalls the ebb and flow of ancient battles and the shaping of the world.” comments vocalist/ bassist Morgan Rider.
