Lavish gatefold for the vinyl 2LP version. It would be too easy to simply call IIRON the COH metal album, as it goes way beyond that. True, this album of classic Ivan Pavlov stompers contains more than its fair share of guitars both acoustic and electric, yet it still maintains that sense of power and purpose through electronic music which stands out as the COH "raison d'être." Coming 11 years after IRON (Wavetrap, 2000), which also tackled the sound of rock with alarming results, the new album features not only recent guitar tracks recorded at Music Research Centre at York University, but also recordings made during Soviet-era Russia, which refer to Pavlov's underground music activities in the early '80s when making or even consuming of "metal music" was forbidden. IIRON is a powerful, well-executed electronic rock record, with just a dash a humor to keep it from becoming pompous, as so much of that kind of music can be sometimes. With stunning artwork by Stephen O'Malley (Sunn O)))). Vinyl cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin, November 29th, 2010. HAIL TO WORLD PEACE AND DEATH TO FALSE METAL. In memoriam: Satoshi Kon and Peter Christopherson.
