Ironvolt

IRONVOLT are a 5-piece Groove / Funk Metal band from Bristol, South West UK.

IRONVOLT formed slowly between 2015 and 2018, beginning with softer Rock styles and incorporating a wide range of genres and influences into their music. During this time, they released an experimental album influenced by artists such as AC/DC, Black Stone Cherry, and Motley Crue, without a steady drummer or bassist. Following on from this, the 3 founding members were joined by drummer Sam and began to move towards a heavier, more Metal direction.

Their line-up includes founding members Aaron Miles (lead guitar and vocals), Minka Miles (lead vocals), and Lewis Weyman (rhythm guitar and backing vocals), later joined by Matt Butters (bass) and Sam Harbridge (drums).  This led on to the release of their first serious album, Shadow Boxing; a collection of 11 original songs with Funk, Metal and Rock influences inspired by artists such as Soundgarden, elements of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Metallica and Queens Of The Stone Age.

From the album ‘Shadow Boxing’ comes the blue’s infused track which ‘Mojo’. Listen for yourself below! 

After continuing to play shows around Bristol without a fixed bassist, they were finally joined by Butters in late 2017; this was followed by another steer into the realm of heavier and darker music, and soon after solidifying the band’s line-up they competed in Metal 2 The Masses, successfully making their way to the Grand Final of the competition. IRONVOLT have since played shows around the UK and are currently working on a 3rd album; music with a heavy, catchy and riffbased style reminiscent of their Shadow Boxing days and taking extra influence from artists such as The Devin Townsend Project, Leo Moracchioli, Pantera and Nick Cave and the Badseeds.

Let’s see what Minka has to say about Vocalzone! 

“No other pastille or lozenge I’ve tried seems to target discomfort around the voice quite like Vocalzone, It doesn’t just numb a sore or itchy throat, but it helps to give me back control of my voice when I’m ill or suffering with allergies as it smooths out the crackles and strain. They’re also a smaller, more convenient size than more pastilles and they taste great.”
