One of the best bands at the moment truly representing all that is British and Metal are due to be release their debut album with Transcend Music, on November 28th 2011.

After the success of their three-track EP released earlier this year, Eimination took to the road supporting Evile on their UK Tour and have since been committed to writing and recording and the result is one giant ball of British Steel forged in Middle Earth:

"The new album demonstrates a definite progression in terms of both our songwriting and musicianship from our last record. This has been helped to no end by the amount of shows we've played together, and the intense rehearsing, and writing schedule we've had over the past year" says guitarist Dave Spicer. "The sound on this record is much more refined, and totally representative of where Elimination are right now."

'The Blood Of Titans' has progressed beyond the confinements of their previous 'Thrash' tag; embracing melodic interventions and a heightened dynamism, they have now outgrown the predictable content of Thrash.

Normally, in avoiding their fate, most bands fall into the path of a hyper-clinical 'modern' sound, but Elimination have remained true to their musicianship and songwriting skills and turned their attention instaead to the production:

"The production on this album is more akin to records like 'Clayman' and 'Slaughter of the Soul'. We spent a lot more time in the studio with this record, and we think that it really shows. There has been a lot more care put into the making of this record, both by the band and James Dunkley, who engineered, mixed and produced this album."

This isn't just a new album from Elimination. This album marks a new era. 'The Blood Of Titans' is mature in every sense of the word; The messages are consistent and the delivery is confident.

It knows what it wants to do, it know what it wants to say and it knows exactly how to achieve both.



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.
