"Battlelore has finished working on their sixth full length album named 'Doombound.' The album consists of 11 songs, one of which is instrumental. This is Battlelore's first concept album – all the lyrics together tell the story of J.R.R. Tolkien's tragic hero Túrin Turambar and his kin. One of the songs is sung completely in Finnish in appreciation to Battlelore's beautiful home country Finland and Kalevala, the national Finnish epic. The songs themselves are more dynamic, atmospheric and epic than ever before – prepare for the ultimate music experience and a life-long journey through the eyes of a fallen hero!

"As before on Battlelore albums, there will be a jewel case edition of the album and a special limited edition digipack including some rare material. This time around the extra material is more special than ever before – as a thank you to all Battlelore fans and followers for their enormous support over the past 10 years, the band has compiled a bonus DVD from their personal materials. '10 years of Battlelore' bonus DVD includes material from two live shows, two tour videos, a huge photo gallery and all of Battlelore's music videos. This is the kind of material of us that has never been seen before. We wanted our fans to see, how much their support means to us and what being a part of the 'Battlelore family' is really like. Enjoy, we sure have!"

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
