SAXON----THUNDERBOLT Feb 2nd, 2018 silver lining music

 Saxon has delivered yet another finely tuned heavy metal masterpiece. Produced by Andy Sneap for Silver Lining Music Thunderbolt is the 22nd album by the metal icons, and they show no signs of slowing down. Songs like "Speed Merchants", and " Sniper", are some of their finest works to date. But it is on the soon to be classic hits, "Thunderbolt", and "They played rock and roll", that Saxon once again define themselves; as the permanent kings of the NWOBHM movement that spawned them all those years ago.


     " They played rock and roll"is a fitting sonic tribute to the great Lemmy and Motorhead. The enduring mutual affection by both bands is hailed throughout the song. Mutual respect for other artists can sometimes be fleeting in the business and yet Saxon have remained pure to a higher standard.

Cry Of The Wolf Magazine interviews Tony (the metal duke) and Al from the band IRON WILL

     For those of you not familiar with the heavy metal sounds of IRON WILL, we present to you their latest offering "Life is your Labyrinth". And yes it took 18 years to complete.Rivaling the mighty Guns And Roses in album downtime. That being said you will not find a more metal dedicated character as Tony. From videos on their face book page it is clear that he lives and breathes heavy metal. I hear a lot of old school metal influences with IRON WILL. They are like a cross between ANVIL and early IRON MAIDEN with Paul Dianno. The music just has this old school headbanging feel to it. There is a lot of heart and soul burned into their collective sound.

Can you give us a brief history of the band?   

 Al - My brother Eli were channel surfing on a Saturday morning back in 1997, I think, and we just happened to catch Tony on public access TV singing with his old band, Scorched Earth. Since t…

Iron Maiden Launches New Beer, "Light Brigade" In Aid Of Help For Heroes

British heavy metal legends Iron Maiden and independent family brewers Robinsons announce the creation of Light Brigade, a unique golden English ale with a 4.1% ABV. It has been developed in support of Help For Heroes, the British charity that provides recovery and support for the Armed Forces community whose lives are affected by their service.
6p of each pint and 5p of each bottle sold will be donated to help the thousands of Servicemen and women who live with complex wounds and injuries – both physical and mental – and are looking to regain their purpose in life.
Help For Heroes met with Robinsons in the summer of 2017 to explore the possibility of launching a beer. Robinsons and Iron Maiden, who jointly launched Trooper Beer almost five years ago and which has now sold over 20 million pints worldwide, were immediately enthusiastic about the idea. Indeed, the origin of Trooper’s name, which comes from the classic Iron Maiden song, 'The Trooper', based…

Jim Florentine Everybody is awful (except you)
Jim Florentine will forever be known to the metal community as "That metal show guy". But this book shows an illustrious career that spans acting,dj work, Hbo, That metal show, sirius xm radio dj, and even...driver for strippers. Emmy award winning Florentine is a modern comedic genius. He is the "Heaven and Hell" version of comedy to reference Sabbath. 


The book takes us through his life interspersed with his clever and comedic insights on everything from facebook posts to language usage. Florentine's book is chock full of great quips and pokes at modern social media soaked society. This is a great book and and an easy read. Step inside the snarky, rant filled brain of Mr Florentine and enjoy the ride.

NOTURNALL

TITLE 9 BY Noturnall LABELRockshots Records RELEASE19 January 2018



NOTURNALL is one hell of a metal band. The video included below sends a powerfully positive message to all who watch. Just incredible sense of dramatic and control within the song. This is a band that feels like its on the edge of something. Plus they straddle both the heavier elements and the softer elements of the genre. making this band an extremely versatile force to be reckoned with. Get this album and crank it!!!
Check out "shadows", "changes", and the uplifting "Hearts as one".
