Iron Will

Life is Your Labyrinth

Iron Rise Records

January 5, 2018

Album review by Allyson Kingsley Music Journalist with Boston Rock Radio



After receiving the promo material for Iron Will, a band out of Malden, Massachusetts, I was impressed by the story behind the band. Fronted by Tony “The Metal Duke" Canillas along with co-founder and guitarist Eli Firicano, this is a band of iron warriors. Ravaged by tragedies, misfortunes and personal difficulties finally the band rose above and I love rise above stories. They released their debut album Life is Your Labyrinth on January 5th 2018 via their own independent label Iron Rise Records. This work comes after many years of patience and total dedication since forming in 2000 proving that in spite of every obstacle imaginable the dream can be had. Also featuring Al Ravage on drums and Nick Izzo on bass this powerhouse band brings traditional heavy metal to the table.


Rock to the rhythm of “Conquer On” and feel the infectious passion and battle ready lyrics. Title track “Life is Your Labyrinth” has that classic loveable metal vibe aka early Priest or Maiden. “Nightmares” is a beast of a track and perfect to blast while driving, as is the entire work of this album.  Ali’s riffs and solos are furiously shredding and Al Ravage is a Thor worthy drummer. I thoroughly enjoyed the old school metal feel- reminiscent of a time in life that was both debaucherous and yet innocent. “The Dream"- having lost many souls in my life, all I can say is it's slow, it's personal, it's heart rending.


The sound production is excellent and the band is very cohesive, band of “brothers.” Needless to say I took the long way home to fully immerse myself.
