Portuguese heavy metal warriors CRUZ DE FERRO join music and history in debut album’s artwork

CRUZ DE FERRO

After releasing “Guerreiros do Metal” (Warriors of Metal), their first EP back in 2012, Portuguese heavy metal band CRUZ DE FERRO (Iron Cross) is working hard in getting the debut album out in the streets. The artwork for “Morreremos de Pé” (We will die standing) has been unveiled and the band continues their path on mixing oldschool heavy metal with the wonderful and rich history of Portugal’s glorious past.

The cover artwork, made by talented artist Pedro Sena Lordigan (check his page here), was inspired by the famous, yet almost forgotten battle of Toro [1 March 1476]. This battle was one of the last ones in the peninsular Middle Ages, between the Portuguese troops captained by King Afonso V [1432-1481] and the Castilian troops of Ferdinand II [1452-1516], king of Aragon, Castile and Leon.

In this battle, whith an outcome that remains inconclusive to these days, Prince John [1455-1495], who was to reign as King John II of Portugal, Gonçalo Pires [?-?] and Duarte de Almeida [?-?], the lieutenant chief of the kingdom, to whom was entrusted the Portuguese flag, distinguished themselves.

In the heat of the fray, Duarte de Almeida was surrounded by the enemy, who cut off the hand that carried the national banner. Stricken with terrible pain, he holds the banner with the other hand, which is also cut off. Finally he rides, with the national flag carved among his teeth and with the support of the stumps of his severed arms, until he is finally overthrown. However, a companion in arms, Gonçalo Pires, later known as the “The Banner” recovered the lost standard from the enemy.

Taken prisoner to Spanish territory, Duarte de Almeida was treated with honor and nobility, and his weapons were exposed in the cathedral of Toledo in respect and veneration. Back in Portugal, he died forgotten and in misery, the usual thanks of an ungrateful homeland that needs others to honor their heroes. For posterity, he would be known as the “O Decepado” (The Severed), a name which also inspired a song in the next CRUZ DE FERRO’S album “Morreremos de pé”.

The songs of “American Spring” are an aggressive critique of the global social and political climate of 2015. The artwork is no different. The cover art is meant to challenge our collective view of violence and peace. The entire “American Spring” package includes essays, personal liner notes, and further information behind the driving forces of each song, detailing ways for us all to take action against injustice in the world. The “American Spring” is now.
