Pre-orders for “Dawn Of Creation: Twentieth Anniversary will launch on April 6th.  Those that pre-order the album at that time will be rewarded with an additional bonus.  That will be a third CD containing an official bootleg live recording of a 2007 Stuttgart show from IRON FIRE.

Crime Records issued the following statement about this release saying:

“So now it’s been twenty years since five young guys from the Danish country side decided that power metal should be the first step on their quest to glory.  The name Iron Fire came up and carved in stone that these Danes meant to be real, and despite their young age, forge catchy power metal rooted in the classics of Helloween and Running Wild.  As the journey continued, ups and downs turned and reformed the band into the trio of today.  And now that trio is looking back, and in their wish to celebrate 20 years of power metal, a selection of demo songs has found its way to a double album.  Along with three brand new songs Iron Fire provides old songs in the original pre-album versions as well as previously unreleased material.  This is the raw and pure, from the heart of Iron Fire. Enjoy!”
