The release of Iron marks the sixth anniversary of Yann Novak relaunching Dragon’s Eye Recordings, the record label originally created by his father Paul Novak in 1989.  In previous years, this anniversary compilation has been a chance to look forward to the coming year of artists and releases. With Iron, we will be looking backward at the previous 6 years.

For Iron, artists featured on Dragon’s Eye were asked to contribute either a solo piece or a collaboration with another Dragon’s Eye artist.  The results came together as a  massive free download compilation, consisting of 24 artists, on 20 tracks and over 2 1/2 hours of sound.  The compilation came together as a perfect mix of the styles and voices featured on Dragon’s Eye over the last 6 years.
