iron magazine Queen of Hell (LP, £16.75)label: Ektro
Iron Magazine is a cross-continental team-up between Danko Jones and John Calabrese from Danko Jones, and Jussi Lehtisalo and Tomi Leppänen from Circle. With such a pedigree, the resultant sound of 'Queen Of Hell' makes total sense: lazer-buzzing, intergalactic HARD ROCKIN' at that nexus of 1980 where greasy 'n' galloping heavy metal, Sunset-strippin' hard rock and space-cased AOR all crossed DNA for one brief moment. But, of course, with anything involving the tentacles of Circle and especially Lehtisalo, there's a completely demented and totally tweaked streak to Iron Magazine, though Danko's feel-good/feel-bad anthemics can also be strongly felt on 'Queen Of Hell'.
