IRON MINSTREL is a fictional band, fronted by a fictional character named Prince Awesome, set in a fictional world.
In reality, Prince Awesome (Erek) required a more focused outlet for his musical inspirations and took up the moniker of IRON MINSTREL in order to maintain a singular creative direction.
That direction is metal--thematic, melodic arrangements deftly crafted to carry the listener through a wide spectrum of emotions, without ever having to utter a word. Put simply: IRON MINSTREL kicks ass!
Erek writes, plays, and records all instruments, is responsible for mixing and mastering all songs, and is currently in the process of recording a full-length album titled "THUNDERLODE".
