XIRON from Osnabr?ck were founded in the mid-nineties by Christian Horn, Marc Kipker and Michael Seifert. Very soon, guitar players Marc Plitzner and Christian N?lle joined the ambitious crew. Their first ever song ?welcome Death With A Smile? already showed the musical direction XIRON have been sticking to ever since ? traditional 80s Metal, played with the power and force of the 90s, nonetheless always melodic, with catchy, rememberable hooklines.
After the first live shows, a track for the ?Pure Underground? compilation was recorded; that compilation was given away for free at the Wacken:Open:Air 1998 and XIRON received very good responses for that.
In January 1999, XIRON entered the Dog-God studio to record their first demo ?Wicked Kingdom?, which among others was sent to Iron Glory Records, resulting in initial negotiations for a contract. After some further demo recordings like ?Carved In Stone?, the band decided to start recording their debut album ?Turn To Stone?; due to various technical problems, the recordings proceeded rather slowly, so that the album was released with some delay in January 2001. But it was well worth waiting for !!
