Seattle rock band Queensrÿche go from strength to strength as they unveil a behind the scenes documentary of their soon to be released mini movie "Ad Lucem" which includes tracks from their current self-titled album.

The tracks "Spore", "Midnight Lullaby", "A World Without" and "X2" provide the score to a 10 minute story, dubbed "Queensrÿche - Ad Lucem" which is set to be released later this year.

You can watch the behind the scenes documentary here:

The film was directed by Daniel Andres Gomez Bagby (who previously worked on the television series, "Blabber Box") and features an appearance by Brian Krause who previously starred as Leo Wyatt in the TV series "Charmed" between 1998-2006. "Ad Lucem" was filmed last month on location at Central City Stages in Los Angeles.

Vocalist Todd La Torre commented: "We decided to take a different approach with this video, which is comprised of four pieces of music from our latest self-titled release, "Queensrÿche". It's a conceptual mini-movie music video that invites the audience to scratch beneath the surface a bit, rather than the usual 'chewed food' that so many are used to being fed. We really wanted to deviate from a performance type of video so the music and story-line could be the main focus."

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.
