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

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

Ozzy Osbourne biopic, Music and Surgery.

OzOe

Sharon Osbourne spoke about the upcoming Ozzy Osbourne biopic and said that she hopes that they will begin filming the project in the spring of next year. The film will focus on the early days of her and Ozzy's relationship. She told DailyMailTV..."It's a movie about Ozzy's and my life, how we came together in the early days and our volatile relationship. All the fights, all the makeups, all the fights, all the arrests, all the everything. And it's a love story. Our fights were legendary. We would beat the sh*t out of each other. It stopped, must be 20 years ago, but we had a good run. People are going to watch it go, 'This isn't allowed. They shouldn't behave that way and put it on film. But [we're] only talking the truth. Some people have volatile relationships and ours was very volatile." (Dailymail link for videos and more!) https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-9986649/Sharon-Osbourne-gives-update-Ozzys-health-reflects-famously-volatile-relationship.html

Ozzy Osbourne has announced that he will be celebrating his birthday (December 3rd) with the release of a special 10" black vinyl single featuring three versions of the song "Hellraiser". One with the song's cowriter Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead is featured on the brand new 30th anniversary digital release of Ozzy's classic "No More Tears" album. The special 10" will feature the duet on the A-side, along with classic original Ozzy track with Motorhead's version of the same song on the B-side.

Also, according to his wife and manager Sharon, Ozzy is planning to undergo major surgery to help correct neck and spine issues that were the result of a fall in his home in 2019. She said of the upcoming surgery, "The thing I'm most excited about is my hubby getting back on stage. That's what I pray for. It breaks your heart that he wants to get back. He misses his friends, his musicians, they're his partners. He misses that life. But with his Parkinson's, he's fine. He's fine, he's got it under control."

Bring Me The Horizon is returning with a brand new song called "DiE4u"

tldkfzn

 ...and also sharing the INTENSE official music video. The song was recorded remotely during the pandemic, and is part of the second phase of the "POST HUMAN" EP campaign. 

The band's Oli Sykes explained the song is "about toxic obsessions, vices and things you can't kick. I think a lot of people went through very similar struggles while in lockdown, coming face to face with yourself and seeing who you really are and what's important. The song is a triumphant and emotional one for me because it was a time of realization to kick the things that were no good, and to take the choice in bettering myself. It also connects to a deeper theme about us as a society, and how we need to look at the way we treat ourselves, each other as well as the world." 

Bring Me The Horizon will be heading out on their sold out U.K. arena tour later this month.
