ETERNAL CHAMPION - The Armor of Ire (Black / 2020 Reissue) LP
New pressing on black vinyl with different labels and back cover.
In 2012, the ETERNAL CHAMPION was reincarnated in Austin, Texas, USA, beyond the sealed sign of Chaos. That reincarnation changed but is still here fighting for Epic Heavy Metal.
In the beginning there was "The Last King of Pictdom" demo & 7" single, followed by the "Retaliator" split 12" EP & CD with GATEKEEPER.
In 2016, the debut album "The Armor of Ire" was released via No Remorse Records and changed the balance of underground heavy metal.
A strong and timeless album that invokes the old spirit of MANILLA ROAD, OMEN, MANOWAR, DOOMSWORD and the legendary hordes of underground metal.
Produced, mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (also SUMERLANDS) the debut album is a breath of fresh air in the field of traditional and classic heavy metal and the lyrical concept fits perfectly.
"Glorious, uplifting and much needed in dark times 'Armor of Ire' is an Epic Metal tour de force. May your sword stay wet" - Alan Averill (PRIMORDIAL), 6 out of 6 for Zero Tolerance magazine.
Due to huge demand, “The Armor of Ire”, one of the greatest Epic Metal albums of the millennium, is repressed on black vinyl, with different labels and back cover, so it will be different from the first 2016 pressing.
