Having not released an album since their debut, The Cold Vein, in 2001, NYC duo Vast Aire and Vordul Mega - aka Cannibal Ox - are back. Not only are they back with this one track, a collaboration with DOOM called 'Iron Rose', they're back in full form with an album on the way.

Called Blade of the Ronin, it's out on 3rd March via IGC Records/iHipHop distribution. This bellicose track 'Iron Rose' features a thumping clatter of a beat courtesy of producer Bill Cosmiq and features a lot of wordplay based around the word "iron" resulting in a plethora of cold and gritty imagery.
