Gigblasters and Rock Rotation Radio are proud to bring a night of New Wave of British Heavy Metal back to the country where it all started. Featuring a host of originals, it is going to be a night of entertainment that hasn't been seen on these shores for a long time. Heavy Metal music at its best, back where it started.

New Wave of British Heavy Metal launched a plethora of bands, bands today still influenced by the movement. Is it any wonder so many of the original bands are still going?

All you need to read is the following from the Metallica Biography 'Damage Incorporated', published 2006:

"Metallica opened its early live sets (and 'Kill 'Em All' album) with 'Hit The lights', a song that begins with a noisy 2–chord flourish meant to evoke the opening of a concert. However, in a further illustration of NWOBHM's important role in Metallica's musical direction, the opening chords – drum fills and all seem to have been lifted directly from Weapon's 'Set The Stage Alight', The 1980 release from the influential fledgling NWOBHM band."


NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

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.
