WACKEN 2008

October 14th, 2008

Wacken Open Air 2008

Once again tens of thousands of lunatic metal freaks travelled from all over the world to the small German village located in the middle of the beautiful northern German countryside. The small peaceful Wacken literally goes upside down when nearly 80.000 conquer the village during one weekend in a year. Wacken Open Air celebrated its 19th birthday from the 31st of July to the 2nd of August, whose biggest headliner ever in the history of Wacken was Iron Maiden. Despite Iron Maiden being the biggest name on the bill, however there were tons of other interesting and fascinating names.

Brat: The mass convergence of catholic youth in Sydney for World Youth Day the week Ray and I left brought a smile to my face and a feeling of warmth as I realised it wouldn’t be long until I was part of a similar pilgrimage but to Hamburg Germany and with two major differences—where Sydney was awash with colourful youth, Hamburg would be invaded by a swarm of black; and the trolley suitcases carrying clothing would instead be trolleys full of beer; songs of the gospel would be replaced by metal anthems. They came to worship at the cross—we to worship at the flaming longhorn but we all would display our nations’ flags proudly.

Tickets for W:O:A 2008 sold phenomenally fast. The special edition X-mas pack with extra goodie bag sold out before I could take a long breath after my 2007 trip. By February the official festival ticket seller was “SOLD OUT”. Suddenly the ebay market was flooded with tickets with one ticket reaching a record price of 800 British Pounds—obscene. Even in July with less than 1 month before the festival, there was an average of 5 new listings a day for tickets, which nullified all “SOLD OUT” credibility. (Brat)

IRON MAIDEN – Somewhere Back In Time: The Powerslave Interviews

IRON MAIDEN - Somewhere Back In Time: The Powerslave Interviews

Somewhere Back In Time: The Powerslave Interviews

By Gueneviere

The following are a series of interviews done with all the members of Iron Maiden just prior to the U.S. release of the watershed 5th album, Powerslave, circa Autumn of 1984. At the time, the band was also in the midst of touring Europe in support of the same album. (The tour had already taken them “Behind the Iron Curtain” into Poland, a first for a western heavy rock band at the time, and an event which also resulted in a public relations coup and a documentary later shown on MTV, etc.)

BLAZE BAYLEY – Blaze, ex-Iron Maiden, Wolfsbane

May 21st, 2007

BLAZE BAYLEY

BLAZE BAYLEY is best known as the man who, at their darkest hour, infused IRON MAIDEN with new passion and enthusiasm and bestowed his voice and songwriting talent to THE X FACTOR and VIRTUAL XI albums in 1995 and 1998 respectively, as well as the track "Virus" on the "Best of the Beast" compilation in 1996. Blaze’s career did, not begin nor end with IRON MAIDEN. The debut album, called LIVE FAST DIE FAST, of his first professional band, WOLFSBANE, was released in 1989. A second album, DOWN FALL THE GOOD GUYS, followed in 1991 and finally, after a live album called MASSIVE NOISE INJECTION in 1993, the band put out their final, selftitled, album in 1994. After diverging from the ranks of IRON MAIDEN, Blaze forged on with a new band simply called BLAZE and released, against great adversity, three studio albums, SILICON MESSIAH in 2000, TENTH DIMENSION in 2002 and BLOOD AND BELIEF in 2004, as well as a live album called AS LIVE AS IT GETS in 2003. By the year 2007, BLAZE has been transformed into BLAZE BAYLEY with the summer seeing the release of the very first DVD from the band. Hopefully later in the year a new studio album, as well as an extensive world tour, will also be forthcoming. Read on to learn what Blaze Bayley has to say about his ordeals and endeavours, past, present and future.

Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris
Interviewed By Gueniviere on July 22, 2000

Before I get to the meat of the most recent interview I did with Steve Harris (the first of several others was done back in early ’82),  perhaps a little background is in order…

IRON MAIDEN’s Steve Harris (Classic interview)

August 28th, 2005

Classic Interview with IRON MAIDEN’s Steve Harris
July 1982, Alpine Valley Resort, Wisconsin

Steve Harris picture from 1982Interviewed by Gueniviere in 1982!

This article/interview, written when Iron Maiden were the support band on the Scorpions’ “Blackout” Tour, first appeared in the August/1982, edition of NIGHT ROCK NEWS, a now-defunct Chicago music paper.

The following is a transcription of the article I wrote from the first interview I did with Steve Harris back in July of ’82. It’s so funny to view some of the comments in hindsight! Remember, at the time, not all that much was known about Iron Maiden in the US yet, and there was no internet to access the info. You basically had to rely on anything else that was written that you could find, and at the time there wasn’t much around in the US. But then, it made me ask questions I might not have asked otherwise!

Janick Gers of Iron Maiden

August 24th, 2005

Janick Gers of Iron Maiden
Interviewed in July 1999 by David Lee

Janick - Live

It is not as though IRON MAIDEN haven’t blazed plenty of trails across the heavy metal landscape already. One might think that selling upwards of fifty million records and redefining a genre when it was starting to sag around the middle was more than meeting the heavy metal call to arms, one might think this but, only when the subject is other than the beast that is IRON MAIDEN. Though they would be quick to tell you that they never really left, MAIDEN is back and more powerful than anyone could have ever conceived.

A PC video game, “ED HUNTER,” is this summers reason to wake band mascot Eddie from his slumber not to mention the army of stage hands and crew that it takes to stage a MAIDEN event. The game itself is built completely around the world of MAIDEN and visits all the famous scenes capes from the classic album covers. Thugs throwing bottles at you as you shoot the popup portraits of the band and even Eddie himself, all to the music of IRON MAIDEN. Strictly family entertainment me thinks! A bit less violent and the real focus of what MAIDEN does are the twenty “Greatest Hits” as chosen by the fans via the MAIDEN web site. Pure capitalistic democracy in action here on this three CD release Janick Gers has ridden the MAIDEN beast for the last decade of its being and has given fans their moneys worth on both album and stage, now he is part of what can only be described as a heavy metal guitar army. Along with fellow axe wielders, Dave Murray and Adrian Smith, Gers has engineered a faster, broader and meaner MAIDEN that is currently huffing and puffing its way across America and soon, Europe. By Spring of next year there should be a new album featuring the beefed up six man lineup of Gers, Smith, Murray, bassist Steve Harris drummer Nicko McBrain and the most popular MAIDEN mouth, Bruce Dickinson. What more could the metal world ask for? And lest you be fooled into thinking this is just some quick cash scheme masquerading as a “reunion”, well, get thee to a show and then you will witness a sizable chunk of metal’s past glory as well as a glimpse into a very exciting metal future. Janick was kind enough to sit and chat before the mighty MAIDEN’s Detroit gig.

Blaze Bayley of Iron Maiden

August 23rd, 2005

Blaze Bayley of Iron Maiden
Interviewed Jan. 1999 by David Lee

With over twenty years on the metal scene you would think that a band that has given so much to the genre would get a little respect now and then. Unfortunately for the mighty MAIDEN respect has been in particularly short supply over the last half decade. Personal and stylistic changes would seem to be at the root of all the fuss and with the decline of the metal market place you might think that these guys would chuck it all in. Fortunately, nothing could be further from the truth.

“VIRTUAL 11” has a revitalized MAIDEN returning to the formula that made them the metal legends that they are. Also back is the completely over the top stage production for MAIDEN’s first tour in nearly three years. Just short of the scale that was used in the “golden era” of metal, this thing is impressive, to say the least. The beast is far from dead. Blaze Bayley, the groups current vocalist, gave us a ring recently and spoke to us of all things MAIDEN. A genuine sense of pride and accomplishment seemed to pervade the conversation and understandably so.  The man is fronting one of the all time great metal bands and has just released a collection of tunes that will most assuredly become MAIDEN classics. We could go on singing his and the groups accolades but lets hear it from Blaze himself.
