Brandan Schieppati, the former vocalist for Orange County metalcore titans Bleeding Through, has returned with a solo project called The Iron Son. Anaal Nathrakh’s Mick Kenney and drummer Shannon Lucas (ex-The Black Dahlia Murder, ex-All That Remains) helped out the frontman with recording for the project. Schieppati offered on The Iron Son:
“I’m proud to finally be making the announcement of my new band The Iron Son. You can take a listen to the song “Unleash Hell” from the up coming record Enemy at www.PVREEVIL.com!! This song features Chris from Motionless In White on guest vocals and Shannon Lucas on drums. After a short layoff from the music industry I decided to work on this band with friend and producer Mick Kenney to create this music.
This band is a solo band but I will be having a solid line up that will play shows with me. This is a total DIY project. Although I received a bunch of record label offers for this project I decided to self fund the band as well as being a part owner in the record label @pvreevilrecords along with @ctothejray this music is for you and I. Not for people that just see it as $$$. I put my heart in to this and the lyrics are straight to the point. It is a reflection on the darkest years of my life and recovery from addiction and mental illness.
Pre-order for the CD and 12 inch LP will be available November 13th. With a digital release shortly after. I really hope you enjoy and if you don’t oh well.”
The first single by The Iron Son has also been released. Listen to “Unleash Hell” from the forthcoming debut Enemy below. The track features guest vocals by Motionless In White vocalist Chris Motionless. As stated in the quote above, the effort will be distributed by Pvre Evil Records, with pre-orders available beginning next Friday, November 13th.
