Biography

Minneapolis, United States (2005 – 2012)

Iron Thrones was a progressive metal band from Minneapolis, MN. Their music combines progressive death metal and post-metal, with elements of classic progressive and modern rock, as well as a variety of other extreme metal subgenres.

Previously performing under the name “Everest”, the band was founded in late 2005, and released their first EP titled “Where Earth Meets The Sky” through Mascaret Records in 2006. After a major member and stylistic change, the band was renamed to “Iron Thrones”. Their debut album, titled “Visions of Light”, was self-released on November 21st, 2008 as a free digital download on their website (download. ironthrones.com), and as a short run “Limited Edition” CD. Soon after its release, “Visions of Light” garnered many positive reviews on underground websites, leading to a nation-wide re-release in early 2009 by Tribunal Records. Shortly thereafter, guitarist Adam Shaleen would amicably leave the band to pursue other interests outside of the music industry. The band has performed and recorded as a four-piece since then, with Adam Clemans (vocalist), Steven Henningsgard (guitarist), Curtis Parker (bassist), and Peter Clarke (drummer).

In Fall 2009, the band began the process of writing their follow-up album. In Spring 2010, just before they were to enter the studio, Iron Thrones was announced as the winner of Scion’s “No Label Needed” Contest. They were flown out to the East Coast to record what would end up being a 6-song, 41-minute EP with Will Putney of The Machine Shop. In addition, they received mentoring from several high-profile musicians and PR/music-related companies, with the intention of giving the group everything they’d need in order to succeed as an independent band.

    Better than BTBAM and I'm not afraid to say that.

    Melodic, but solid material: some songs even top BTBAM at times.

    These guys and After the Burial are putting Minnesota on the map (kinda). Not a big fan of ATB but they are from the town right across from mine so I am obliged to at least respect them.
