Iron Savior: Condition Red-2002.

Iron Savior is a German power metal band that was formed in Hamburg in 1996. Following a period of several years working behind the scenes in music production, multi-instrumentalist and producer/engineer Piet Sielck joined with former Helloween bandmate Kai Hansen and then-drummer for Blind GuardianThomen Stauch in a new project that would blend power metal with a high-concept science fiction story.[1] The band’s debut album Iron Savior introduced the story that would be told over the course of multiple albums, featuring a self-aware space vessel called the Iron Savior and its relationship to the mythical lost civilization of Atlantis.[2]

Critics have compared Iron Savior’s sound and musical approach to classic heavy metal bands like Judas PriestIron Maiden, and Queensrÿche.[1] Kai Hansen’s presence in the band brought to the Iron Savior albums on which he appeared a style heavily influenced by Gamma Ray and Helloween.[3]

Since its inception, Iron Savior has released eleven studio albums, two EPs, three singles and one live album.

Despite numerous lineup changes, Piet has continued to direct the band and is currently the only remaining founding member.[1]
