Toronto, Canada based political rock band IRON AGE MYSTICS is sending a message of hope and support for those who continue to resist the oligarchic corruption of modern society with the release of the lyric video for "Down Deep." Off of their Pride Before the Fall 4 PEACE Digital Release, the second part of which released yesterday, "Down Deep" celebrates the continued movement of humanitarianism and social responsibility against corporate dominance and political cronyism and is a lyrical “thank you” directed at people who are really trying to make humanity better, starting with themselves.
"Iron Age Mystics represent the current cutting edge of political rock music, so say many. The strengths of this band range widely, but the message of each song consistently occupies the driver’s seat. Overall, the recordings and themes are intended to deliver a bracing sense of self-empowerment in the face of what appears to be overwhelming odds. The bottom line here is: if you’re willing to take on some of today’s most pressing issues disguised as well-crafted rock songs, this might be the band for you."

IAM started as a writing project initiated by Greg Mount (drums) with members Clayton Rudy (bass guitar), Allan Wohng (guitar) and Kevin Connelly(vocals). The guys hit musical ‘pay dirt’ at about the 4th or 5th month of jamming together bi-weekly with the earliest version of “You’ve Got The Power.” That one track set the tone for the writing that was to become the IAM signature or ‘brand,’ if you will.
The next couple of years were spent between the rehearsal studio, the recording studio and the live stage.
After concluding his part in the recording of IAM’s 8th studio track “Pride Before The Fall”, Greg Mount (drummer) had to step out of the recording process and so Alexander ‘Sascha’ Tukatsch (who played percussion on an earlier track entitled “Down Deep”) stepped in to complete the album. Similarly, Allan Wohng (guitarist) was stricken with a condition that hampered his ability his guitar so Chuck Brown completed the record.
IAM was and is an ongoing project that is steeped in talent, integrity and a true obsession towards making ‘Music That Matters,’ because that’s what matters…
