Ignitor is one of those tiny local bands playing old-school metal just for the hell of it, as Take To The Sky (a self-released effort from 2004) features six songs taken straight from the metal heyday of the mid-eighties. Of course, this is hardly contemporary stuff and it's all for nostalgia's sake, but for pure headbanging enjoyment, these guys and gals fit the bill. Since Sky they've signed to the Cruz Del Sur label for their first full-length album, Road Of Bones, released in late 2007.
