Release date: September 2016

The Epic Heavy Metal apocalypse of 2016. An instant classic that dominated the top metal lists of 2016.

"Glorious, uplifting and much needed in dark times 'Armor of Ire' is an Epic Metal tour de force. May your sword stay wet" - 6 out of 6 - Alan Averill / Zero Tolerance

"A steel metal album that today seems to be more necessary than ever" - Metal Invader

"Eternal Champion’s 'The Armor Of Ire' is an epic adventure in storytelling and music. The battles have been won with this album" - Metal Temple

"If you believe that Cirith Ungol is the most underestimated band of all times, if you still raise your fist when you listen to 'Battle Hymn" and 'Witches Brew', the this album is waiting for you" -

"It will be no shock to those who know the tastes of our editor, that Eternal Champion’s ‘Armor Of Ire’ has been on repeat. It’s a tick-box of heavy metal delights. But why? After much deliberation, it was decided that we would try and scientifically dissect why a debut album, of a band from Texas who don’t really seem like this is their main gig, have managed to get “potential album of year” accolades from everyone from Darkthrone overlord Fenriz to proper, real music journalists who have opinions that matter and are invited to vote on important things like the Polaris Music Prize and The Grammys. It’s because it’s real. And simple" - Iron Fist

Highly recommended for fans of MANILLA ROAD, CIRITH UNGOL and DOOMSWORD.
