Piet Sielck and his vibrating, razor-sharp guitar sound, triumphantly returns on Iron Savior's 2007 LP release "Megatropolis".

Although the album's music and songwriting isn't always original per se, there is a grittier, dirtier approach to the playing ; However, that seems to fit the wider range of its lyrical content. For the most part, gone is the Iron Savior storyline.

The last song "Farewell And Goodbye" is the one exception. Not only does it speak of the Savior, a previous guitar riff resurfaces here to reinforce the tie-up. As well, the title is also the theme, complete with a synthesized cavalcade of bells at the end, to signal the grand send off of the Iron Savior saga. What is sung about is very current, hedonistic, and bleak.
Songs like "The Omega Man", "Cyber Hero", and "Megatropolis" are great fusions of this less than polished sound and the darker shade of our world today.
The best song on the album could be "Cybernetic Queen" for not only does it feature a shining metallic chorus near anthemic levels, the lyrical theme is among the most sinister and cold.
To add, even songs like "Running Riot" and "Flesh" seem to benefit from this juxtaposition as well, even though on the surface they sound like they've been done before - as if they were previously thrown away tracks but now have seen the light of day only because of this new makeover.

One critical point that needs to be made, though, is the vocal change up by Sielck. There is a conscious effort here to sing clean with a vibrato on some of the tracks… and the result of this isn't appealing nor impressive at all. Other than his rhythm guitar sound and production expertise, Sielck's voice is one of Iron Savior's greatest strengths.
Fortunately, there are plenty of his classic, mid-range and throaty vocal chords to go around - that's a good thing because "Megatropolis", overall, has a solid vibe and a great sound brought to us by one of the greatest power metal creators out there today !
