Danish metallers IRON FIRE have issued the following update:
"On April 15th, we will start recording the next IRON FIRE album. The working title is 'Metalmorphosized' and with this album we celebrate our ten-year anniversary as recording artists.
"Instead of just making a best-of album, we give you 13 new greatest hits. We have picked up some previous unreleased songs back from the years between 'On The Edge'  and 'Revenge' , and updated them to how we think IRON FIRE should sound in 2010. There will also be brand new written tracks that will show the path of future albums to come.
"To complete this anniversary package, all previous album recording members of the band will be guest-appearing on the record.
"We are planing to be ready for mix with Tommy Hansen within a couple of months.
"Prepare for ten years of metal and madness unleashed in audio."
Video footage of IRON FIRE's March 6, 2010 performance at the Rock in Copenhagen, Denmark can be viewed below.
IRON FIRE will record a song for the upcoming VIRGIN STEELE tribute album, "By The Gods: A Noble Tribute To Virgin Steele".
IRON FIRE last year parted ways with guitarist Marc Masters (FORCENTURY). The band stated, "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.
"Kirk [Backarach, IRON FIRE's other guitarist] will do all the guitar work on the upcoming album."
