McMaster (Dangerous Toys, Watchtower, Evil United) on vocals.
Influenced by 80s masters Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Metallica,
Ignitor's music is a blend of classic true metal with the power of
today's greats like Primal Fear, Grave Digger and Brainstorm.
"When the songs for the new record were coming together, it was
obvious in the writing that this is a definite return to true metal,"
said McMaster, whose experience in classic metal in undeniable.
Ignitor has released four albums to date. Their Mini CD "Take to the
Sky" was highlighted as "Demo of the Month" by Germany's Rock Hard
magazine. Back in 2004, PowerMetal.de voted Ignitor as one of the Top
Newcomers of the year.
The band's 2nd album, "Road of Bones" is available at all fine CD
retail outlets and worldwide through Cruz Del Sur at
CruzDelSurMusic.com and MVD Entertainment Group at mvdb2b.com.Their
3rd album "The Spider Queen" is also available worldwide through Cruz
Del Sur at CruzDelSurMusic.com.
"The new album was a blast to make," said Beverly Barrington (rhythm
guitar). "I had only just rejoined the band when we recorded our
concept opera of the Spider Queen, the last album which was a unique
and cool experience, but I also wanted to get back to what inspired
Ignitor in the first place, and I think we've achieved that with this
new recording. The Batlord (Stuart) really got into "the zone" I
think, and tapped into a deep and vital, classic heavy metal vein when
writing these songs, and it really inspired everyone to contribute
their best ideas and chops, so that everyone shines. This album
touches on all the various elements of this genre that really jazz me,
and I would hope other metal fans, as well."
