Hailing originally from Druids Heath in Birmingham. Iron Fist of the Sun is the sonic project of extreme noise protagonist Lee Howard. Live power electronics, experimental sonic terrorism and Black Metal are all encompassed in an unforgiving soundtrack to your most brutal nightmares… just don’t dare call it “Art Noise”.
Personal obsessions, codes of behaviour observed by a misanthropic mind. Bitter and cold. Nihilistic and scornful. Elitist and Pure. Birmingham Nihilism!
Iron Fist Of The Sun have shared the stage with: Sutcliffe Jugend, Boyd Rice/NON, MZ. 412, Zoviet France, Brighter Death Now, Skullflower, Z’EV, Con-Dom, JK Flesh, Cold Cave, Deutsch Nepal, The Grey Wolves, Inade, Raison D’Etre, Trepaneringsritualen, Slogun and many more.
Cold Spring released Iron Fist Of The Sun’s “Behavioural Decline” in 2009, followed by a split LP with Burial Hex, the limited 12″ “Sulphur Bloodlines”, the album “Who Will Wash My Right Hand”, and Howard’s latest masterpiece “We Can Yield Our Own Footsteps” in 2015.
