Napalm Death frontman Mark 'Barney' Greenway checked in with the following comment: "We realise that there will be a fair percentage of people at these shows who have never heard of Napalm Death - let alone would go to see the band - and so the task for us is to do our utmost to give people a truly extreme experience sonically and of course offer some ethos. There will be noise in the purest sense of the word and we appreciate being asked to do our bit."

Children Of Bodom added the following: "Touring the UK and Ireland with Napalm Death feels great! We are honoured to have these pioneers with us and looking forward to seeing them live every night!"

Napalm Death's latest album, 'Utalitarian', has recently (on July 15th) been re-issued by Century Media Records on LP due to the continuous demand. Check in with CM Distro for all available physical formats of the current release and previous albums.

Here are three video clips launched in promotion of the 'Utalitarian' album:



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.
