Iron Mask was formed by Dushan Petrossi, Belgium’s number 1 guitar hero. Dushan got his first guitar when he was 9 (1982) and never stopped playing for 20 years. Very early, he played in several cover bands till the day he wanted to compose his own music. At the age of 15,he composed his very first heavy metal song then he played with a lot of different bands in Belgium. Dushan Petrossi is also known as leader of the international speed symphonic prog metal band Magic Kingdom .

Dushan signed with Lion Music in early 2002 to record a side project Iron Mask. The band’s name and some songs of the album are also based on the famous book ‘The man in the Iron Mask’ by Alexander Dumas. Great melodic power metal music is what you will get from this band, Dushan’s guitar playing is influenced by a lot of different musicians and composers like Handel, Verdi, Paganini, Mozart. This album was titled ‘Revenge Is My Name’.

The opening song of the album ‘Enemy Brother’ is Handel‘s Overture arranged for electric guitar by Dushan, recorded with a real string section. Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Romeo, Michael Schenker and Gary Moore are Dushan’s electric influences.

Dushan‘s got his own style of playing and to compose music is what he likes most mixing his influences to create his own universe which combine melody, energy, fantasy, virtuosity, epic lyrics and incredibly fast soloing, he’s one of the best guitar player of the new generation. Bass was recorded by Vassili Moltchanov (also in Magic Kingdom), who played with the famous Russian band Master in the 80’s .

    Как-то всё средненько, и вокал, и музыка. Есть более мелодичные группы, с качественным материалом, которые не имеют тега neo-classical metal. В общем на любителя, нечего такого.

    Listening to it now, because I "follow" the guy who made the new album cover, on DeviantART. Funny way to be introduced to a band.

    At my first listening seemingly it isn't good as their previous releases, 'can't explain why but I still a bit disappointed.

    Just got black as death, not (in my opinion) as good as shadow of the red baron but that's just because i love Valhala jr's voice more :) Still like the album though!!
