  • METAL NEWS: Anthrax to release covers EP!

    Posted by Terry Stevens

    According to Blabbermouth, Anthrax is going to release a covers EP in March.  Click here to get the story and the track listing, then come back here for analysis.

    Oh good, you're back.

    I know, right?  Rush, Thin Lizzy, AC/DC, Cheap Trick, Boston and Journey. Pretty corporate rock selection.

    However...

    'Thrax has taken some wonky songs and made them metal as hell in the past.

    Who can forget what they did with Joe freaking Jackson of all artists?

    Not to mention taking a classic Motown song by the Temptations and adding that metal crunch:

    During the John Bush era, they covered The Smiths and made Morrisey's mopey ass metal.  No small feat:

    And let's not forget what they did with Public Enemy:

    While I'd rather hear 'Thrax take on more unconventional songs as opposed to classic rock, their covers track record makes this EP worth anticipating and investigating.

  • METAL NEWS: Buy Iron Maiden's jet for $174.50!

    Posted by Terry Stevens

    Well...a tiny version of it anyway.

    This outfit called Model Buffs is selling official models of Iron Maiden's Somewhere in Time jet, the one they flew around the world in.

    Here's a couple pics of the life sized version:

    You can see what the model looks like HERE.

    Not sure what the stats are if you use the model Maiden plane in your Warhammer 40K game.  Could it beat a Basilisk?
