Secret Sphere – a name guaranteed to make every Power Metal freak's heart beat faster with excitement and anticipation!

Secret Sphere manage to honour the heritage of big names in the Metal scene creating their very own brand of Symphonic Power Metal: catchy refrain, majestic arrangements, a multitude of musical influences (from hard rock to progressive Metal) are the main ingredients of their musical receipe!

Secret Sphere was founded in summer 1997, by the talented guitar shredder Aldo Lonobile. With six albums under their belt, collaboration with labels like Nuclear Blast, Avalon/Marquee, Scarlet Records, Warner Music Japan; extensive tour and great live shows around the world supporting one of the most well know Metal acts in the scene, such us King Diamond, Gamma Ray, Edguy among the others; Secret Sphere are one of the most relevant Metal bandsz from Italy.



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.
