Band Bio

Blood & Iron was formed in early 2005 by Ashish, while originally veering towards symphonic heavy metal, the band has evolved to a purer old school heavy metal sound. After numerous line-up changes, for about a year and a half, the band stabilized – and since then there’s been no looking back.

The first two albums met with good reviews and success on the Indian underground metal scene. Further band line-up changes followed. The band then decided to release their third full length studio album in 2013, titled "Voices of Eternity". Several guest musicians feature on this album.

 Giles Lavery, the lead singer of Australian metal band ‘Dragonsclaw’ has taken on lead vocalist duties on all tracks. Youmni, lead singer of Dubai-based metal band ‘Ascendant’, handles backing vocals on all songs as well as lead vocal parts on ‘Burning Bridges’ and ‘Ghost of A Memory’.

Vin Nair, lead singer of Dubai-based rock band ‘Vin Sinners’ takes on the part of ‘the Narrator’ on ‘Ghost of a Memory’. Riju “Dr. Hex”, bassist of Mumbai-based metal band “Albatross” handles the bass on ‘Eternal Rites’.
