MAIDEN’S ACCLAIMED REMASTERS GET THE CD DIGIPAK TREATMENT

Parlophone Records (BMG in the US) will continue their reissues series of the IRON MAIDEN catalogue with The Studio Collection – Remastered, covering the band’s sixteen-strong studio albums across their career to date.

Following on from 2014/2017’s black vinyl releases and 2015’s Mastered for iTunes project, The Studio Collection – Remastered will be released on the Digipak CD format, with the track listing matching the original UK releases. The recordings are taken from the same remasters as the 2015 hi-res digital releases. The albums will be released chronologically in batches of four, across a nine month period superseding the previously available studio catalogue and all titles will also be made available on streaming platforms. As a bonus for collectors, one CD from each batch of releases will also be optionally available in a specially artworked box featuring a 1:24 scale figurine and exclusive patch. In the November 16th batch, this will be The Number Of The Beast.

Maiden founder member and bassist Steve Harris says, “We’ve wanted to revisit these for a long time and I was delighted with the remastering we did in 2015. I thought it was the best that our albums have ever sounded and it was only right that we made them available on CD now too.”

All four albums in this first batch are available for pre-order now!

1st batch: November 16th

Iron Maiden / Killers / The Number Of The Beast (option of standard or collectors box set edition including TNOTB Eddie figurine and patch) / Piece Of Mind

2nd batch: Feb 2019

Powerslave / Somewhere In Time (standard/collectors) / Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son / No Prayer For The Dying

4th batch June 2019

*not remastered but appearing in Digipak for the first time

IRON MAIDEN recently completed the first leg of their Legacy Of The Beast tour, playing sold-out stadium, arena and headline festival shows across Europe to over 750,000 fans. The tour, which was hailed by fans and media alike as the must-see show of the summer, will continue into 2019 with a headline show at Brazil’s Rock In Rio festival recently announced and more dates to follow.

LONG LIVE IRON MAIDEN.

SATAN – Signs With Metal Blade Records

From Metal Blade Records:

Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the signing of long-time running NWOBHM legends Satan (Band) to its roster.

The heavy metal quintet has signed a multiple album deal with Metal Blade and has just finished recordings for their tentative new album to be released during the second half of 2018!

Comments Satan: “Metal Blade is part of Satan’s past and we are super excited for it to be part of our future. It seems so fitting, it’s hard to imagine another label that could give us a better platform for our music today.”

While standard bearers of the NWOBHM movement and responsible for ’83’s seminal Court In the Act and ’87’s Suspended Sentence, with their tentative new album Satan make it abundantly clear that in 2018 they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of 10 tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015’s mighty Atom By Atom, in the process displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

Having reunited in 2012 and returned to touring duty, Satan – comprised of six-stringers Russ Tippins and Steve Ramsey, bassist Graeme English, drummer Sean Taylor and vocalist Brian Ross – once more proved their collective mettle with 2013’s Life Sentence and follow-up Atom By Atom; both records critically acclaimed and maintaining the high standards of their earlier releases. With such a powerful collection in their hands the band were unsurprisingly eager to take it on the road, and they once again had successful tours and festival runs in Europe, North America and South America, culminating with a slot opening for Pentagram in Helsinki, which Tippins counts as a true honor.

Satan will unleash their latest batch of classical Heavy Metal songs in the second half of 2018. Be prepared for one of the best Metal albums of the year and stay tuned for more information about it!

Rob Halford - Revolver Cover Feature - Feb - March - 2018 - #333MO745ILMG

COVER STORY ACCOMPANIED BY JUDAS PRIEST X REVOLVER CAPSULE STREETWEAR COLLECTION

_______________________________

Feb. 21, 2018, NEW YORK – Revolver’s February/March 2018 issue arrives on newsstands today, featuring one of hard rock’s most iconic front men, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford (https://www.revolvermag.com/music/rob-halford-judas-priests-new-album-legacy-metal-leather-pushing-boundaries).

“I remember sitting with Glenn and Richie and talking about what we wanted this record to have in it,” says Halford to Revolver writer Steve Appleford. “And we wanted to make the heaviest, most classic-feeling record that we could possibly do for 2018, representing Priest as a band that’s been around for four decades, but at the same time, bring something fresh.”

The cover story is accompanied by the release of an extremely limited-edition Revolver x Judas Priest streetwear collection. The collection, which features a hoodie and long sleeve tee, is available exclusively via revolvermag.com (https://shop.revolvermag.com/collections/judas-priest-x-revolver-collaboration).

The new issue also features interviews with Maryland hardcore act Turnstile, The Great Frog jewelry maker Imogen Lehtonen, NASA navigator Paul F. Thompson and how his early years listening to metal shaped his future, Swedish goth rockers Tribulation, a look back at Pantera’s 1991 visit to Moscow for Monsters of Rock, and an interview with shredder/berserker Zakk Wylde.

New video content available via Revolvermag.com:

* Rob Halford, Lyric Dissector – Rob Halford walks us through a line-by-line examination of “Lightning Strike,” the debut single from Judas Priest’s forthcoming record, Firepower. The iconic vocalist unpacks the metaphors that he employs to tell a story of resisting divisive, fear-based manipulation at the hands of authority figures, reveals his deep connection to these issues and explains his view of Priest’s community of “metal maniacs” as a unifying force that can help people overcome personal difficulties.

*Chris Gregson (Blood Wizard), Ride The Lightning – Chris Gregson discusses his passion for metal and skateboarding, and hits some of his favorite skate spots for a day of shredding with a few of his rowdiest Blood Wizard crew mates.

*Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach interviews Baroness’ John Baizley, Flex Your Head – Killswitch Engage front man Jesse Leach interviews Baroness’ John Baizley in a discussion about overcoming tragedy, Baizley’s passion for visual art as well as music, and how Baroness evolves “outwards like from a radial point, rather than forward.”
