Parlophone Records will follow 2014’s reissue of the first eight Iron Maiden albums, which spanned the 1980s, with twelve brand new pressings of albums from the period 1990-2015 in heavyweight 180g black vinyl.

Unlike the 1980’s reissues which were cut from the original analogue master tapes, the audio on these releases has been cut from the high resolution remasters of 2015 when the Maiden catalogue was digitally upgraded. They will be packaged in identical artwork to the initial vinyl releases. View the release schedule and details inside! (more…)

Another year has come and gone, and in my opinion, 2015 was one of the strongest in recent memory in terms of quality hard rock and metal releases.

Harris recently called in from her home in England to talk to Live Metal’s Greg Maki about her break into the music industry, the album and more.

And it’s great to see a band not so obviously influenced by Maiden throw some recognition their way. (more…)
