Iron Maiden Announces “Legacy Of The Beast” World Tour Dates

British heavy metal icons Iron Maiden has announced a series of headline shows in both North and South America for the Summer of 2019 as part of their “Legacy Of The Beast” tour. Support on the trek will come from The Raven Age, featuring George Harris (son of Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris,) while additional support at the Los Angeles show will come from Fozzy.

Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson comments: “We’re excited to return to North America and share the Legacy Of The Beast Tour with all our friends there! We’re immensely proud of this show and we’ve had great reactions from the many fans who came to see us in Europe earlier this year. The production is based on our mobile game The Legacy Of The Beast which basically takes various incarnations of Eddie into many different Maiden Worlds. This inspired us to put together a stage show to take our fans through different Worlds and experiences set to appropriate songs. It is not that easy designing different Worlds on stage and we put a huge amount of work into this to make it work and the end result we feel is our most spectacular and certainly the most complex show to date.

“We’ve got all kinds of crazy things going on, including a replica Spitfire plane dominating the stage during ‘Aces High,’ tons of pyro, a giant Icarus, muskets, claymores and some truly marvellous flame-throwers which I have a hell of a lot of fun with, as you will see! And of course we have Eddie, as you’ve never seen him before, and absolutely loads of other surprises. I’ve had the time of my life playing with all these magnificent props on stage, it’s been fantastic, we can’t wait to bring this show to you!”

Steve Harris, bassist and founder member adds: “We gave a lot of thought to the set list for this Tour as the songs needed to follow the narrative of the changing worlds of the stage show. We feel we ended up with a very strong and well balanced set mixing songs we haven’t played in many years like ‘Flight Of Icarus,’ ‘Sign Of The Cross’ and ‘The Clansman’ with songs we know the fans want to hear like ‘The Trooper,’ ‘2 Minutes To Midnight,’ ‘The Number Of The Beast,’ ‘Fear Of The Dark,’ ‘Run To The Hills,’ ‘Hallowed Be Thy Name’ and others, reflecting the journey through the different themes of the show. The whole band is really enjoying this tour and we are really looking forward to seeing everybody again!”

Ministry Posts “We’re Tired Of It” Visualizer Video Online

Industrial-metal legends Ministry will continue to support their critically acclaimed album “AmeriKKKant” with a full U.S. tour later this November, supported by synth-wave sensations Carpenter Brut. In anticipation of the trek the band has released a visualiser for the track “We’re Tired Of It,” below.

Produced by Al Jourgensen, recorded at Caribou Studios in Burbank, CA and with striking artwork created by Mister Sam Shearon, the psychedelic, politically influenced and very much in-your-face AmeriKKKant’s nine tracks are rooted in Jourgensen’s unadulterated anger for what’s happening in America today: the waning respect for the US Constitution, the growing acceptance of one’s opinions replacing facts, the decline of our leaders’ sense of morals, ethics and personal responsibility to the country and to their constituents, and the mad man in the White House.

The tour dates are as follows:

11/21 San Francisco, CA – The Warfield
11/23 Salt Lake City, UT – The Depot

Silent Planet Premiere New Song & Music Video “Visible Unseen”

Silent Planet premiere a new song and music video called “Visible Unseen“. It’s the latest track to arrive from the group’s new effort “When The End Began“, which will receive an official release later today, via Solid State Records.

Comments vocalist Garrett Russell of the outing:

“‘Visible Unseen‘ is about the epidemic of homeless LGBTQ youth — a statistically observable phenomenon where disproportionate numbers of LGBT youth are homeless in America. The song was inspired by heartbreaking conversations I’ve had at shows, hearing the pain of kids who have been abandoned by families and shunned by communities, simply because they don’t fit a traditional paradigm of sexuality.

I call these youths the ‘Visible Unseen’ because this is a phenomenon that is happening around us, but often goes overlooked. So this is an anthem for them, and a challenge for us, to recognize an often-isolated, needing group of young people in our society.”

You can see Silent Planet live with Stray From The Path, Kublai Khan and more on this North American tour:

11/02 Denver, CO – Marquis Theater
11/03 Kansas City, MO – Davey’s Uptown

And we are not coming alone. We will join forces with a brilliant and ass kicking bands: Septicflesh and a special guest! What a way to start a new year! This tour will leave its mark on the history of metal! So get your ticket in advance and get ready to mosh with us like there is no tomorrow.
Oh! And one more thing: on this tour, we have no chance to play in every city that we would want to, so we are doing our best to return to North America for a second time in 2019.
Stay tuned and see you soon! m/”

Ensiferum tour dates:
Jan. 31-Feb. 4 – Ft. Lauderdale, FL – “70,000 Tons of Metal” cruise

You can’t talk about the true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal without reverent mention of Ensiferum, and with their latest album, Two Paths, they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre. Further building upon the thrilling metallic hybrid honed across six full-lengths, Two Paths is simultaneously the Finnish quintet’s most epic and far-reaching collection and their most organic, which definitely sets it apart from the pack. Additionally, the album literally takes the concept of Two Paths to heart, with two different versions of standout tracks “Don’t You Say” and “God Is Dead”. “Even though Ensiferum has always had clean vocals and choirs, harsh vocals have been the main style, and those songs worked so well with both styles that we decided to include both versions,” explains bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka. With Mikko P. Mustonen again handling orchestral arrangements and Lassi Logren returning to play nyckelharpa and violin on a few songs, Hinkka is also more than happy that they brought “more bombastic orchestral and down to earth folk aspects” to the record, further fleshing out their vision. This also applies to the contribution of Gyula Havancsak, who provided the artwork for both Two Paths and its predecessor, One Man Army. “It was really nice to work with him again because he always wants to hear our ideas and then he adds his own magic and improvements to them, and the result is always astonishing.”
