August = A Good Month For Power Metal!!

So as you all know the new Iron Maiden album is set to be released this month as you all probably know from me ranting about their live show I witnessed and posting their new song El Dorado. What some metal fans may not know though is that there’s another metal album being released this month that I am equally as pumped about! Blind Guardian’s “At The Edge of Time” is set to be released on August 24th!

 If you like power metal with heavy influences of fantasy then you best run out and prepare to play this album during battle in your next D&D campaign! Blind Guardian has been around since 1984 and they just seem to keep getting better!  Anyway I found some full songs from the upcoming album posted on youtube so if you’re ready to get epic as shit then you best sit down and take a good listen!!

Iron Maiden TONIGHT!

Well my time HAS come! There’s not too much for me tosay today as I am preparing myself for the Iron Maiden concert tonight! In a few minutes I will be hitting the road and headed to metal heaven to see the best metal band of all time perhaps on their last tour ever!!

 It’s gonna be an epic night of fucking rock and hopefully Maiden gives it their all. It seems from most of the footage I’ve seen that these guys have actually gotten better with age-anyway I will leave you with The Wicker Man one of their best songs and from what I hear the track they open with!!

My Time has Come-Iron Maiden Here I Come!

There comes a time in your life when you really just have to suck it up and fucking rock. That time has finally come for me as I am preparing to see one of the best bands in the whole damn world for the first and possibly last time, IRON MAIDEN. Sure the tickets were quite pricey and having grown up attending punk rock shows I really haven’t been to that many arena shows in my time. I mean I saw some pretty amazing bands back in the day for six bucks or less, bands that went on to sell millions of albums even. Even living here in Portland Oregon it seems most bands are just too damn afraid to turn up their amps and many times I end up at the same old timid artsy shows-never getting 1/10th of the rock needed to survive the real world properly. But now the time has finally come to admit to myself, it’s time to man up, rock for real and see one of the best concerts of a lifetime.

I have wanted to see Maiden live for years, but some how always seemed to put it off because of pricey tickets Continue reading
