crucified barbara

'The Midnight Chase' kicks ass from the get-go with opening track 'The Crucifer' – laden with the bands trademark trashy, punk-edged rock n' roll, Mia's smoky, gravel-voiced vocal and infectious choruses.

Mia says, "I've never felt this good about anything we've made before... I'm so damn proud of the new songs, the sound is better than ever, we can't wait to go on tour and perform them live!"

Crucified Barbara earned their rock n' roll stripes the old fashioned way - on the road. From playing clubs in their native Scandinavia the girls went on to tour with Motörhead, In Flames, Sepultura, Backyard Babies, Doro and more.

The anthemic 'Into The Fire' seems destined to become a live favorite, while 'Rules And Bones' ("are made to be broken...") is raw and haunting and 'Rock Me Like The Devil' delivers on its promise.

Debut album 'In Distortion We Trust' received critical acclaim including a single in the Swedish Top 10, follow-up 'Til Death Do Us Party' benefitted from the band's now international gigging experience and an all-round tighter sound saw the record surpass the success of their debut.

Crucified Barbara sound like rock stars and look like rock stars... 'The Midnight Chase' will ensure they are rock stars.



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.
