Don't give up on a possible Halford show near you just yet. I was just reading an email from Halford's site. 
He has Japan and South American dates coming up but in November and December he is adding shows.
Dates and sites to be announced Sept. 21. Good luck. I'm not trying to be greedy (f*ck it, yes I am) but I hope he plays clubs 
and one of the dates is Pittsburgh.

Damn, go for a cruise anyone?


ICED EARTH has been confirmed for the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise, which is set to sail from Miami, Florida to Cozumel, Mexico on January 24, 2011 and return four days later. A total of 40 acts will appear at the event.

The festival billing is shaping up as follows:


70000 Tons Of Metal will sail Monday, January 24, 2011 aboard the Royal Caribbean "Majesty of the Seas" from Miami, Florida to Cozumel, Mexico and will not return you to the real world for four days until Friday, January 28, 2011.

Make no mistake, 70000 Tons Of Metal is not your grandma's cruise. It's also not one of the cruises that share the ship with normal cruise guests. This is an all-ship heavy metal cruise! Can you imagine that? A whole luxury cruise ship full of metalheads? And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It's like everyone has a backstage pass and you might even need a vacation from this vacation when all is said and done!

Ticket prices start at US$666 plus US$249 taxes and fees per person and include all on-board entertainment, all meals and non-alcoholic and non-carbonated drinks at the on-board restaurants and 24-hour room service!

City changing name for band frontman

A village in northwest Ohio plans to change its name for a day in honor of Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, who's visiting town to host a March of Dimes Bikers for Babies ride.

Snider, known for 1980s heavy metal songs such as "We're Not Gonna take It" and "I Wanna Rock," also hosts the nationally syndicated radio show, House of Hair.

The ride of about 7 miles from Lima to Cridersville is Aug. 21. Cridersville plans to change its name to Sniderville during the event, which raises funds to help fight premature birth.

Snider is the 2010 Bikers for Babies national spokesman.

He had jokingly suggested that Cridersville change its name when a listener from the town requested a song on his radio show. He says the honor is "one of the coolest things that's ever happened" to him.

Heheh- A bit gushing, isn't it? Who knows, maybe it will be that good. I am still holding out hope. Some hope... well, a bit- well, I'd like it to have some good songs anyway. 
I wish they would stop re-using song titles like that. Bruce had a solo track called the Wicker Man which pre-dates the song from the Brave New World album. It's confusing if nothing else.

HALFORD released a new single, "The Mower", on June 25 via The track is the first single from HALFORD's new album, "Halford IV - Made Of Metal", which will be released in October.

HALFORD's last album, "Halford III - Winter Songs", sold 1,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 26 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

"Halford III - Winter Songs" was Rob's first solo release in more than seven years, and it included a collection of new Halford-penned tracks plus traditional holiday favorites presented with original arrangements by HALFORD (Rob Halford on vocals, Roy Z. on guitar, Metal Mike Chlasciak on guitar, Mike Davis on bass and Bobby Jarzombek on drums).

Metal God Records and Rob Halford recently announced plans to release "Halford - Live In Anaheim Original 2CD Soundtrack", "Halford Crucible - Remixed & Remastered" and "Halford - Live In Anaheim" DVD, a 5.1, 23-song, two-plus-hour film documenting Rob Halford's 2002-2003 solo release ("Crucible") and tour.

Metal Hammer have revied the forthcoming Iron Maiden album The Final Frontier. Here is the review. I think Brian_Evans may be writing for Metal Hammer incognito LOL!

IRON MAIDEN The Final Frontier Track-By-Track

Somewhere between the dark and menacing war stories of A Matter Of Life And Death and the prog-tinged melodic bombast of Brave New World, albeit with a vast amount of fresh ideas thrown in for good measure, The Final Frontier is every bit as strong as the last three Maiden albums. The difference between this one and its predecessors is that these songs repeatedly take the Brit metal legends into uncharted territory. This is a demanding album, but one that most Maiden fans are going to absolutely adore…


Everyone has heard the album’s title track by now, and it’s a straightforward and infectious slab of muscular hard rock that seems destined to open Maiden shows for the foreseeable future…but it’s the first part of this bi-polar album opener that is going to blow fans’ minds. A disorientating maelstrom of swirling distortion, thudding double kicks and bizarre spectral vocals, Satellite 15 is undoubtedly the weirdest thing the band have ever recorded. It’s heavy, it’s left-field and it’s utterly unexpected.


Opinion seems to be divided about whether El Dorado is simply a solid, straightforward Maiden tune or something genuinely special. In fact, it’s a bit of both; a bold and boisterous seven-minute epic with an infectious chorus and a few deftly-executed twists and turns, all custom-built to go down an absolute storm live.


A dark and menacing song that could easily have been on A Matter Of Life And Death, this is one of those archetypal horrors-of-war anthems that Maiden do so well. It starts with a faintly proggy intro – a whiff of Steve Harris’ beloved Jethro Tull, perhaps – before morphing into a brooding, slow-motion gallop, not a million miles from Stranger In A Strange Land (from Somewhere In Time), but with a much more sinister overall vibe. “Sick of all the killing and the reek of death…” sings Bruce at one point.


A bombastic, lighters-in-the-air ballad with a difference, Coming Home marries a giant, sing-along chorus to some subtly progressive riffs and a typically adventurous arrangement. Undeniably sentimental, this is plainly Bruce Dickinson’s song, as he sings about returning home and seeing the lights on the runway as his plane descends to Earth. Not many bands could pull this off without setting off the cheese alarm. Maiden do it brilliantly. A live classic in the making.


Arguably the most old fashioned song on the album, this punchy four-minute burst of speed, energy and irresistible Lizzy-esque lead guitar harmonies would have fit neatly onto Fear Of The Dark and nimbly ticks all the necessary boxes to please the die-hards. Interestingly, this has the same title as a song from Bruce Dickinson’s classic solo album Chemical Wedding. The two songs are utterly dissimilar, however.


Possibly the finest thing on The Final Frontier and certainly one of the strongest songs Maiden have produced in years, Isle Of Avalon takes the band into unfamiliar melodic territory, with a few unconventional time signatures and proggy detours adding to the intense freshness that pervades throughout its nine minute duration, and a simply enormous chorus that will surely translate extremely well live. There’s a vague hint of Paschendale (from 2003’s Dance Of Death) and a nod or two to Maiden’s Somewhere In Time album here.


Another song that is full of surprises, despite Maiden’s unmistakable sound, this is another epic that brims with great riffs, melodies and subtle textural touches. Almost psychedelic in places, Starblind has a genuinely otherworldly feel, particularly during its intricate midsection which boasts a phenomenal bluesy lead break over some sumptuous, mellow guitar work from the Three Amigos.


Another song that would have fit on A Matter Of Life And Death, The Talisman is dark and complex, but it also flows beautifully, spreading out from its folky intro into a powerful main verse riff and a seriously explosive chorus with Bruce bellowing at the top of his not inconsiderable lungs. Despite being nine minutes long, this one whizzes by in what seems like half that time.


An eerie, unsettling intro leads into some crushing, doomy chords before this sprawling epic switches direction and heads into a superbly catchy and muscular verse riff and another big chorus. Like many songs on The Final Frontier, The Man Who Would Be King seldom does exactly what you would expect, and yet it all makes perfect sense by the time its rambling, harmony-packed intro fades gently away…


Based on author Raymond Briggs’ grim post-nuclear fallout graphic novel (When The Wind Blows), the final track on Maiden’s 15th album is every bit as bleak and unnerving as its subject matter would seem to demand, and yet this is as musically fascinating and lyrically brave as anything the band have recorded. Densely-layered and uncompromising, this one will take a few listens to sink in, but there is an insane amount of atmosphere and countless inspired melodic touches on display here. A stunning finale.
