Hello,

I have some faint recollection about Iris (the Romanian pioneering hard/heavy band) being featured around here way back in the past, but I may easily be wrong on that, and if it's the case, I apologise. I do understand their classic 1980's stuff can be too-hard-rock-to-be-metal (I personally do not agree, but I respect the moderators' view on that), and most of their 1990's-2000's input is pop rock balladry that hardly deserves a mention, but I feel their latest CD "Lumea Toate E Un Circ" (2018) may qualify as a heavy metal release after all. Not the heaviest thing ever laid down on tape, granted, but I'd say more than half of the songs here featured are more metal than anything else:

Will be more than happy to make the necessary additions in case it qualifies for a MA entry. Thanks in advance for your time!

Really not the heaviest thing out there, but worth another look.
Whitelisted.

Out of curiosity, has Iris been evaluated for their 1993 full length? The riffs seem on the metallic side of bands like Krokus and Scorpions. Here's the full album for consideration. Thanks.

I know it's already been whitelisted for a second look, but I'm going to vouch for the 1993 full length. If you ask me, "Harley Davidson", "Valuri", "Sabia Dreptăţii" and "Pentru fani" are all unambiguously Metal songs. The rest is predominantly Hard Rock, but even those tracks have Metal influences. It's another case of 50/50.

No one asked you though. Please leave comments about metalness to moderators. Thanks.

The album is more rock than metal btw.
