Iron Maiden announce 2023 UK and European dates for ‘The Future Past Tour’
Iron Maiden have announced the first UK, Ireland and European dates of ‘The Future Past Tour’ 2023.The English metal band will kick off their six-date UK run of shows in Glasgow (June 26), stopping off in Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham and Birmingham, before finishing up at London’s O2 on July 7.READ MORE: Iron Maiden – ‘Senjutsu’ review: an imaginative instant classicThe band has also announced five European shows, starting in Krakow, Poland on June 13, with stops in Zurich, Amsterdam and Antwerp, rounding up in Italy on July 15.The tour will feature previously unperformed songs from their most recent studio album ‘Senjutsu’, along with tracks from 1986’s ‘Somewhere In Time’ and other fan favourites.Pre-sale tickets can be purchased here from 9am BST until 8am October 14, while the general sale starts at 9am October 14.Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris said in a statement: “Following the release of our latest album, ‘Senjutsu’, we updated the current ‘Legacy of the Beast Tour’ a little by opening the show with the first 3 songs from it, with the Japanese Palace stage set. As it doesn’t make a lot of sense to repeat this for a ‘Senjutsu’ album tour, we thought about other options and we’ve decided to revisit ‘Somewhere In Time’ as that tour didn’t feature in the various retrospective history tours we’ve played over the years.“They were based on our 80’s concert videos and sadly we did not film that tour (blame the manager!!).

Here’s Metallica’s ‘Master Of Puppets’ in the style of Slipknot
Metallica’s legendary track ‘Master Of Puppets’ as if it were written by Slipknot – check out the result below.Streams of the original song have increased significantly following its recent use in the finale of Stranger Things season four. In the finale, titled The Piggyback, Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) played the 1986 track on a rooftop to distract a horde of demonic bats protecting the lair of main villain Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower).Since then, it has been reimagined in the style of Rammstein and now, by TikToker and YouTuber Devin Taylor as a song written by Corey Taylor and his masked rabble, Slipknot.Check out the brutal new version of ‘Master Of Puppets’ below.Since the release of the new season of Stranger Things and its iconic Metallica sync, the metal legends have been embracing its impact in introducing younger fans to their music.Following the episode’s release in July on Netflix, Metallica shared a post on Instagram on praising the show’s creators, the Duffer Brothers, for the sequence.“The way The Duffer Brothers have incorporated music into Stranger Things has always been next level, so we were beyond psyched for them to not only include ‘Master of Puppets’ in the show, but to have such a pivotal scene built around it.“It’s an incredible honour to be such a big part of Eddie’s journey and to once again be keeping company with all of the other amazing artists featured in the show.”The track went on to enter the UK Top 40 singles chart for the first time in its history, while the band have jammed backstage with Quinn at Lollapalooza and released a range of Stranger Things-inspired merch.Slipknot, meanwhile, will release their new album ‘The End, So Far’ next month.

Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes’ DROP DEAD unveils unisex ANGELSLAYER collection
Bring Me The Horizon‘s Oli Sykes has today (July 29) launched the ANGELSLAYER clothing line under his alternative fashion brand DROP DEAD.The singer’s latest collection is themed on Topheth, a fictional institute dreamt up by Sykes that serves as a metaphor for technology’s insidious grip on modern civilisation.Speaking about the cult-like organisation, Sykes said: “The institute [Topheth] houses other abducted children hand-picked from birth for their psychic powers and forced to become part of a process that leads inexorably to the decay and eventual death of their human selves.”`Topheth, which subjects children to horrifying experiments, also has an agenda to weaponise the children’s abilities, thus creating the ANGELSLAYERS.Included in the collection are futuristic T-shirts, skirts, tops, hoodies and jackets moulded around the dark concept, all available in unisex sizing.“Thematically this collection has created a world inspired by the tech industry’s powerful psychological mind manipulation tactics,” Sykes continued.“Most people don’t realise that lurking behind their screens and phones is a giant laboratory of psychologists, neuroscientists, and social science experts who use their knowledge of psychological vulnerabilities to devise products that hijack their minds, hooking them with a drug-like power, for the purpose of profit or brainwashing.“The ANGELSLAYERS represent a metaphor of this idea, a generation weaponised by shady operatives to believe what’s good is bad and what’s bad is good.Sykes added: “The ideas and concepts [Drop Dead] wants to promote is a feeling of unity, community, and healthy obsessions and passions.

Corey Taylor says new Slipknot album “feels like a reset”
Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor has discussed his mindset while writing the band’s upcoming album ‘The End, So Far’.Taylor was speaking to Kerrang, where he also talked about the band’s previous record ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ and their latest single, ‘The Dying Song’.The frontman referred to the band’s sixth album as a “palette” cleanser before sharing that writing their seventh “felt almost like a reset”.“I could get away from the shit that I’ve needed to say, and get back to the stuff that I want to say,” he continued.He also shared the meaning behind ‘The Dying Song’ during the interview, saying that “For the last few years it’s been very trendy to be offended and outraged by everything, and yet nothing happens – especially in my country, which is just fucking ridiculous.”He added: “It’s almost like the tables have turned, and the more angry people get, the more the people who they’re mad at just double-down on the shit. Instead of there being cause and effect, or crime and punishment, now it’s just like, ‘Fuck you, we don’t care.’“I can’t tell if that’s a reaction because of the almost nihilistic isolation of the cultures themselves, where neither side is acknowledging any of the good parts of each other – they’re just really honed in on the shit that they consider inflammatory.”Taylor then said it felt like people were “ringing the doomsday bell.”“You’re sitting there going, ‘Well, it’s been fun! Everybody, pick up your trash when you’re leaving, and I’ll see you in Hell!’” he said.
