'IRON SPEAKS' has become known as the 'lost' TUNNELS OF AH album since it was abandoned as the fifth album release due to it sounding 'unengaged' to writer Stephen Ah Burroughs; until now. After reworking the original material, 'IRON SPEAKS' emerges as a rediscovered official sixth album release.

The material deals with the transitional stages of life and death, and it's an ominous possessive piece of work. As ever though, the darkness of TUNNELS OF AH's output stems from and towards a place of infinite light.

The title, 'IRON SPEAKS', is a reference to the chapter in the Koran which states that iron emerges from the heavens as a gift to mankind. This is often graphically depicted as a blazing ball of molten fire approaching its earthly target, and that image perfectly encapsulates the sonic dynamism of this album. This album is a consuming experience as it slowly enters its intended orbit to its chosen point with inevitable crushing impact.

The 'lost' album has evolved as an essential TUNNELS OF AH album.
