Iron Maiden’s ‘Legacy Of The Beast’ Video Game features Ghost’s Papa Emeritus IV

imgstpa2021t
Iron Maiden have been collaborating with other metal artists in their free-to-play mobile video game 'Legacy Of The Beast' and now Ghost is playing! Ghost's current front persona Papa Emeritus IV is now appearing in the game dubbed 'Mascarade Diabolique'. That event will end on November 12th at 7:00pm EDT. Past 'Legacy Of The Beast' collaborations include Amon Amarth and Lacuna Coil.

An official press release said of the collaboration:
"The game's Mascarade Diabolique event is an ode to both bands' lore taking its broad themes from the cover of Iron Maiden's 2003 album "Dance of Death" and the video for Ghost's 2018 song, 'Dance Macabre,'. In this new storyline, Eddie and Papa Emeritus IV are both invited to a mysterious party in Transylvania (taken from the intro to A Dance Macabre & also surely a nod to the first Maiden instrumental track of the same name on their debut album!) 
They soon discover that things are getting out of hand, even faster than usual, as a sinister force has mastered the power to mimic the un-bindable will of the sentient powers of free will and individuality, in an effort to bind them to its control. Together they must fight through the hordes of mind-controlled revelers to confront the corrupted mimic, Cardinal Immortus, an evil clone of Papa Emeritus."

"I'm happy to see that my creature is being led into [Maiden's] world. That is a cool thing, both very humbling and flattering." - Ghost mastermind Tobias Forge

How's Columbus?

20211002_22040_20211003-032641_1

 Since we are finally getting back to normal, in some regards, concerts have been happening more and more often and the local bands are finally returning back. Getting their chance to shine over at the Basement is a Columbus favorite Pray For Sleep! Grant, Reno, and Hayden blowing Columbus' mind once again with songs like 'Scream Back'. It so good to see local bands and up and coming bands that have a certain factor about them that has all the heads nodding along and enjoying the sights and sounds of the music! The moments that you see people in the crowd that do not always nod along with songs seem to just headbang along with Pray for sleep. Like I said these guys have something about them that just makes you want to jam out with them day and night! Then when you add in a drum solo from Reno part way through gives some juice to the crowd! Plus, these guys do so much for mental health its inspiring and really shows and gives hope to those who fight a very tough battle. 


What are they going to do moving forward? Well they are trying to work on a new EP and if you'd like to help them out they do have a kickstarter up!!! check them out on their socials to get more info! @prayforsleepband on instagram, twitter and facebook!


A little surprise from the night was a band from Toledo that played right before Pray for Sleep and that is a band called Alien Carnival. It's interesting that out of this surreal year you hear a band that is kind of a throwback to old school hard rock, well from the early 2000s. With guitar solos and a smoothness of a new band that could have something! Also, when you have a bassist with glow in the dark strings always grabs your attention. 


If you want to check out their material their socials are @aliencarnvivalband!


Columbus is thriving I cannot wait to see what else is coming our way in the Capital city!

New Volbeat Song with Album and Tour details

Volbeat---Servant-of-the-Mind-Album-Art

"Our 2nd single, 'Shotgun Blues,' from our upcoming December album, Servant of the Mind, brings some chunky guitars and a return to the heavier side of Volbeat. With a fall tour that starts Friday and a killer co-headlining tour with Ghost to kick off 2022, there is a lot of great stuff happening for Volbeat."

"'Shotgun Blues' explores how every time you move into a house you bring dead people with you. Weird stuff happens when I move into a [new] house… it's very otherworldly… I felt like a kid again when I picked up the guitar, and let's see what comes out of it. I couldn't stop myself. The material was shot out of my body."– Michael Poulsen

New Bullet For My Valentine! Music Video and Album details! BFMV SaWeeeeet!

BFMV21
Here's a new one from Bullet For My Valentine "Knives" with their self-titled album coming November 5th.
"This is the beginning of Bullet 2.0. It signifies where we are right now. The music is fresh, it's aggressive, it's more visceral and passionate than it's ever been." - Vocalist and lead guitarist Matt Tuck

"I think it's the most ferocious side of Bullet For My Valentine that I've ever known. It's time for us to put out a really angry, heavy, aggressive record. I just can't wait to grimace on stage! I wanted to come out guns blazing, f***ing middle fingers flying, and just go for the throat. I think this is a far more aggressive, intense part of Bullet For My Valentine. It's always been there. I've just never opened the floodgates on it. I want to take people's heads off in a metaphorical way." - Lead guitarist Michael "Padge" Paget
