Press Release (Updated 28 Dec 2016)

On 18 November 2016, Northern Irish heavy metal band Fireland released their brand new full-length studio album, entitled Fireland III – Believe Or Die

This new album marks a sea change in the band’s history, with the sound moving towards a more modern and powerful European sound. Riffs and melodies remain at the forefront, as you’ve come to expect from the band. The subject matter of the songs encompasses subjects such as personal loss, sacrifice, revenge, rebirth, a wide range of forces, both good and evil, and of course, love and hate, making the album as diverse lyrically as it is musically.

It features a sequel to the 2008 debut album’s fan favourite, Fallen. It sees our intrepid hero make the ultimate sacrifice to rescue his beloved wife from the dark forces that have taken her from him. This is one of the album’s more epic (in all senses of the word) moments, clocking in at 9:30 in length, allowing the members to stretch their legs musically and artistically.

Work on the album started in 2010, but it was put on ice while sole original member Steve Moore was making waves with his other band, Irish metal favourites Stormzone. With the coup of acquiring the services of David Brown of Chaos Frame on vocals in mid-2016, recording began in earnest over an intensive four month period.

Engineered, mixed and mastered by Steve Moore at FireMachine Studio, it was, and continues to be, entirely self-funded and self-produced. And proudly so.

More bands could take a couple of pages from Fireland’s outlook on songwriting – it’s best to keep your eyes on strong hooks and build great story-telling lyrics to create a riveting front to back experience.

Rating: 9/10

If you love twin guitars, if you love bands that have the power to make you feel like you don’t want the album to end, you will enjoy this album. I couldn’t stop listening, you wont be able to either.

Maximum Volume Music

There have been many albums of this type this year as genuine heavy metal – as opposed to a load of kids in skinny jeans recycling Meshuggah riffs – has undergone a real renaissance, just recently on these pages we’ve reviewed new stuff from the likes of Hammerfall, Civil War and Freedom Call, this might just be the best of the lot.

We’ve often said on MV that this type of traditional metal, power metal, call it what you will, is what people who don’t like metal think metal sounds like. That’s still true, only with “III- Believe Or Die” Fireland have made something that should be played to most of the other bands around to show them how it should be done too.

— Band History

Formed in 2003, Fireland are a twin lead guitar heavy metal band, drawing on all the influences over forty years of heavy metal. Based in Northern Ireland, the band will not let their location on the outskirts of Europe stand in the way of bringing their own brand of riff-based, powerful and melodic metal to the rest of the world.

To date, the band has played with metal legends such as DragonForce, Blitzkrieg, Jeff Scott Soto, Blaze, Doro, Rose Tattoo and Girlschool. In other bands, the members have toured with Saxon, Stryper, Hell and Kreator, and performed at festivals such as Wacken Open Air, Sonisphere, Bloodstock Open Air, Hard Rock Hell and Leyendas del Rock.
