A foreboding storm is gathering overhead. Bells toll, lighting cracks, rain falls... something dark and sinister is heading this way.

This week's Steve Göldby Talks Metal show on MetalTalk Radio On TotalRock was completely dedicated to Black Sabbath's superb, new limited edition vinyl box set, 'The Ten Year War', which was released in the last few days via BMG.

This box set really is a thing of beauty and brings together Sabbath's eight Ozzy fronted albums and also includes many other rarities, all housed within exclusive artwork, quality packaging and world-class presentation.

On the show, you get the complete lowdown on the box set, interspersed with comment by Tony Iommi himself, taken from MetalTalk's very recent interview with the Godfather of Heavy Metal, which was conducted by Mark Taylor.

You will hear selected tracks from each of the eight albums included in 'The Ten Year War' - 'Black Sabbath', 'Paranoid', 'Master Of Reality', 'Vol 4', 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath', 'Sabotage', 'Technical Ecstasy' and 'Never Say Die'.

Steve Göldby Talks Metal, The Ten Year War Edition, was broadcast live on TotalRock at 4.00pm UK time on Wednesday 4th October 2017. You can listen in the players below and catch all past editions here.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
