NY is the place to be if you want to see concerts.

I saw a different 'big four' once. Metal Masters tour 2008 featuring Testament, Motorhead, Heaven & Hell and Judas Priest. Insane concert!!

Coheed and Cambria Not Cumbria. There albums are pretty technical. Along the lines of protest the hero, if you've heard them. Lead singer sings like a girl, but that's not an issue with me. They're very skilled. Orchestra backing in lots of places, makes it sound very symphonic.

Is this only Metallica or Slayer, Anthrax also going to play? I see only confirmation from Metallica
Interesting that tickets start selling 4 months ahead! BTW any clues on who are sponsors? Based on that can see if can get lucky with passes!

Great picture quality, amazing audio and the band just kicks serious *** all through.. Halford is showing his age but his voice is still amazing.
Classic Act this one is. Loved it to the core! Though these guys are not as dramatic as Maiden, but what sound! Real good one to buy after a long time.
Thanks Abhay for pointing that out.

I can imagine! Motorhead and Judas Priest! Two of my favorite bands. Scott Travis is one of the best technical drummers of all time! His drumming is pure genius in Painkiller!

Metallica confirmed. Slayer speculated to play too. Pearl Jam rumored to open. No idea about the sponsors.

P.S. If you do get passes, do let me in on a couple

Amazon.com: Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir (9780061714375): Dave Mustaine, Joe Layden: Books
Phew! It blew me away and was a tough read for me, coming from the good ole' Indian culture. It is interesting to see that the 'Big Four' as we call them today were all neighbourhood boys once, as said in this book.

One another reason I like Megadeth, in addition to Mustaine's fret-frying speed is that, most of his themes revolve around the current affairs in the world, even about 9/11, Bin Laden etc. which seem more real than the dark imaginary and gloomy world created by the lyrics of most other bands.
Sometimes wish that I never learnt english, so that I could enjoy all these bands and escape understanding their lyrics, but somehow the lyrics seeps in through my 'english decoder' and brings in gloom :(

Maiden at it again. They are releasing a collection.
"From Here to Eternity". This time its 1990-2010 collection.

Iron Maiden Official Website


I thought Bruce in BNW was gasping. But then I heard the final 2010 album and then felt Bruce was wow in 2000 compared to today!

Hopefully they add some "classics" (if one can call them) from this period.
FOD Title Track, Wicker Man, Paschendale and few hollow ones from X-Factor and Virtual-XI.


Another churned product from Maiden factory to keep the merchandise rolling.

^ true!

Well, I got hooked to Iron Maiden listening to X Factor and thought Blaze's vocals were perfect for that album. And I was introduced to Iron Maiden from the Killers album so somehow Bruce always comes second or third! But yes, AMOLAD was a very very decent album.

The best bit about iron maiden is that it is arguably the most covered band by quite a few of later bigshot bands!
so you can listen to bruce, and then go on and listen to guys like Metallica,machine head, coheed n cambria etc covering the same!
