Danish metallers IRON FIRE have parted ways with guitarist Marc Masters (FORCENTURY). The band states, "In the end, Marc did not have the dedication to the band that we need, but there are no bad feelings involved in his departure and we wish him the best of luck in the future.
"It's now been almost a year since we started song writing for our next album, and it has not been easy to keep the spirit high at times, but the hard work has paid off and we really feel that we have come up with something great this time.
"Kirk [Backarach, IRON FIRE's other guitarist] will do all the guitar work on the upcoming album which we plan to start recording around spring time."
IRON FIRE's latest album, "To The Grave", was released in January 27 via Napalm Records.
IRON FIRE is:
Martin Steene: Vocals
Kirk Backarach: Guitars
Martin Lund: Bass
Fritz Wagner: Drums
IRON FIRE released its fourth album, "Blade of Triumph", in June 2007 via Napalm Records. The CD was the follow-up to "Revenge", which was released in March 2006 via Napalm.
IRON FIRE issued two full-length albums through the Sanctuary/Noise label prior to signing with Napalm: 2000's "Thunderstorm" and 2001's "On the Edge".
